Caitlyn Jenner Quits Trump Over Military Transgender Ban

"I believe every American should be outraged."

Caitlyn Jenner has supported President Trump and proudly waved the flag for the Republican Party despite ridicule and scorn from his leftist peers. However, now that President Trump has issued a ban on transgenders serving in the military, he officially has called it off. 

Jenner, who came out as transgender in 2015, posted a letter on his official site Wednesday where he said the policy shows deep disrespect to transgenders in uniform.  

“Studies estimate there are as many as 15,000 transgender people already serving this country – and for those brave people fighting for our nation, Trump’s early morning tweets must be devastating,” Jenner said.“I believe every American should be outraged by the disrespect shown to those people wearing our country’s uniform.”

“Furthermore,” Jenner continued, “this half-baked idea puts all of our service members in harm’s way. Does President Trump intend to just pull 15,000 people out of every critical position to which they are currently assigned? That would disrupt core military missions around the world and needlessly endanger our troops.”

After citing that "approximately 134,000 transgender veterans in the U.S. today" and the great progress supposedly made for transgenders, Jenner said, "There is absolutely no reason to undo all that work because President Trump decided to send a few tweets this morning."

The letter concludes with a tribute to his father, who served in WWII and stormed the beaches of Normandy.  

 “William Jenner landed on Omaha Beach in WWII, and his bravery and service to his country has always inspired me and helped make me the person I am today,” Jenner said. “America’s 15,000 trans service members and 134,000 veterans are much braver than you, Mr. Trump; my allegiance is with them and our country, not you.”
