LGBTQ activist and reality stare Caitlyn Jenner has a major problem with the White House and President Trump’s decision to rescind Obama’s order that allowed transgender students to choose which bathroom to use rather than follow what gender was assigned at birth.
Caitlyn Jenner — formerly Olympian Bruce Jenner — release a minute long video Thursday that reassured the transgender community that they are actively working to ensure “full freedom nationwide” with “bipartisan support”.
President Trump’s reasoning for rescinding the Obama-era guidelines for public schools was that the individual states should determine the best course of action for which bathroom transgender students should use rather than have the federal government dictate the policy.
According to Trump Administration officials, the Obama administration guidelines were issued “without due regard for the primary role of the states and local school districts in establishing educational policy,” the New York Times reported.
The order was rescinded following a reportedly heated meeting between President Trump, Attorney General Sessions and Education Secretary DeVos.
DeVos came out stating that she felt hesitant to rescind the order:
“We owe all students a commitment to ensure they have access to a learning environment that is free of discrimination, bullying and harassment.”
Jenner responded to the order in a statement directed at Attorney General Sessions:
“Now I have a message for the bullies: you’re sick. And because you’re weak, you pick on kids, you pick on women or anyone else you think is vulnerable. Apparently even becoming attorney general isn’t enough to cure some people of their insecurities.”
End the end of the video, Jenner addressed President Trump directly “from one Republican to another” deploring him to reverse his order and reinstate the Obama-era transgender bathroom guidelines.

Finally, Jenner stated:
“This is a disaster and you can still fix it. You made a promise to protect the LGBTQ community. Call me.”
