During an appearance on Larry King
Now, Olympian and reality star Caitlyn Jenner said that President
Donald Trump had in some ways disappointed her.
The 67-year-old Jenner is currently
promoting her memoir The Secrets of My Life.
When host Larry King asked Jenner
whether she voted for Trump, Jenner nodded her head and answered, “I
was a Republican and he was our candidate.”
“Has he disappointed you?”
“In some cases he has. In some cases
it's been okay. [Neil] Gorsuch with the Supreme Court. Things like
that. I think the right move for our country,” Jenner answered.
“But yeah, he has disappointed me in
some ways. This whole health care deal. If you're on the
conservative side, I want the federal government out of health care.
I believe in a little thing called the constitution, you know.”
Under the American Health Care Act
(AHCA), also known as Trumpcare, being transgender is listed as a
“preexisting condition,” while the Affordable Care Act, also
known as Obamacare, prohibited insurance providers from denying
coverage to transgender Americans.
“I am not the big supporter [of
Trump]. Although the media has had me as this big Trump supporter, I
really am not. My loyalty is with my community,” Jenner
