The reality TV star teased a political run during an event Tuesday called “Imagining Men & Women: Caitlyn Jenner on Transgender Identity and Courage.”
Jenner, who came out as transgender in April 2015 on the cover of Vanity Fair, voted for President Trump in the general election but has been critical since he took office.
“I certainly have always been on the Republican side. I believe in things like the Constitution and limited government. I lean towards the Republican Party because they are closer than the Democrats to staying to limited government — although I’ve been very disappointed with them over the last several years,” she said when asked if she would take a role in his administration.
“So, I’ve thought about it. Because I’ve done some speaking over the last 30 years at Republican events. And every time I do that, everybody comes up and says ‘oh my god, you should run for office.’ And I’m thinking, ‘yeah, right, I don’t want to run for office. I got way too many skeletons in my closet.’ They’d have some reporter digging into me and I would be dead…they would destroy me. There’s no way I could do it. No, I got no more secrets.”
While the former Olympian said she hasn’t seriously weighed her options yet, a political run isn’t out of the question.
“My loyalties are not with the Republican Party. My loyalties are not with Donald Trump. I’ll come after him and come after Republicans when they start screwing up my community. And I got a voice and they’d better listen, because I will come after them. And so, over the next year or two, I would look at where I can be more effective to helping my community,” she said.
