Just over a year ago Caitlyn Jenner responded to the Trump administration’s decision to withdraw Obama-era guidance that allowed trans kids the right to use the restroom of their choice. “Call me,” she said referring to the president in a video tweet. Jenner supported the now-president throughout his campaign and even voted for him. 

But, this past Thursday the conservative Jenner appeared at the Champions of Jewish Values International Awards Gala in New York City and in a Newsweek interview ridiculed Trump for setting the transgender community back years, saying, “this administration has been the worst ever.”

“They’ve set our community back 20 years, easily. It’s going to be hard to change, but we’ve been through these types of things before and we’ll continue to fight it,” Jenner added and confirms she has never met with the president. “I did come back to the inauguration to meet people. And out of that I have built some very nice and good relationships with the Republican Party, but I have not been back to see Trump.”
