Caitlyn Jenner continues her media tour
to promote her memoir The Secrets of My Life.
In several interviews, Jenner was asked

students to use the bathroom of their choice.
She told CNN's Don Lemon that she does
not regret her decision to vote for Trump.
“As far as LGBT issues, yes, he's
made some mistakes,” Jenner said. “I don't support him in
everything that he does. But we needed to shake the system up.”
Trump, she added, is the man “we need

Jenner also reiterated that her loyalty
is not with Trump but with the transgender community.
“My loyalty is not with Donald Trump.
My loyalty is not with the Republican Party. My loyalty is with my
community and I will fight for this community,” Jenner said.
