Ex-Trump supporter Caitlyn Jenner says she doesn't want to talk politics anymore: 'I just got very fed up'
Caitlyn Jenner has revealed that she will stay out of politics in 2020, just ahead of Super Tuesday.
Jenner, 70, has been a longtime Republican and had also shown her support to Donald Trump during the 2016 election. However, for the 2020 election, Jenner said that she prefers to keep her politics private this time around while having a conversation with The Hollywood Reporter.
Jenner revealed, "I don't talk politics anymore. I tried the first couple of years (after my transition). I went back to Washington to make some changes and, to be honest, I just got fed up. I don't even want to get involved anymore."
Back in 2018, Jenner had written an op-ed for the Washington Post where she had made clear that she was distancing herself from POTUS Donald Trump. She had said that he had 'relentlessly attacked' the trans community and had also revealed that she regretted voting for him in 2016.
Earlier in January, she had taken to the stage at the Women's March in LA where she had addressed the crowd. "Together as women, trans women, and cis (gender) women, we have the power to influence our communities, our families, our friends and colleagues, and turn this country around," Jenner had said.
Social media users criticized Jenner for her stance on politics and took to Twitter to comment on the same. One such user shared, "Must be nice to live in a world where you think politics won't affect you," while another user added, "She will be voting for Trump but more quietly this time. She is in a rarified position where this Administration's heartless policies won't affect her as a transgendered person. She will, however, reap all the benefits of being rich and white."
A third user chimed in, "My voice as a hetero White male carries more power than my trans white female voice is what she is saying and she’ll still be voting for Trump, she just doesn’t want the heat that comes with admitting it. Whatever she calls herself she still thinks with the same privilege."
