Opposition to Donald Trump is starting to pile up, even from people who previously supported him.
Caitlyn Jenner made waves with her decision to back Trump in the election, mostly due to the Republican Party’s tendency to oppose equal rights for the LGBTQ community. Now, Jenner is sending a clear message to Trump, whose administration stripped away federal guidelines for bathroom use for trans kids in schools.
“I have a message for the trans kids of America: You’re winning. I know it doesn’t feel like it today or every day, but you’re winning,” Jenner said in a video she posted to Twitter Thursday. “Very soon, we will win full freedom nationwide and it will be with bipartisan support.”

Jenner continued, “I have a message for the bullies: You’re sick. And because you’re weak, you pick on kids or pick on women or anyone else who’s vulnerable. Apparently, even becoming attorney general isn’t enough to cure some people of their insecurities.”
With a framed American flag in the background, Jenner promised that the case for trans students to use whichever bathroom they are comfortable in will go to the Supreme Court and finished with a message directed at the president: “From one Republican to another, this is a disaster and you can still fix it. You made a promise to protect the LGBTQ community. Call me.”
The administration’s move targeting trans kids attracted attention from other celebs too, including Beyoncé, who posted to social media for the first time since her pregnancy announcement.
“#LGBTQ students need to know we support them. Share your support to #protecttransyouth at glsen.org/100days & put #KindnessInAction GLSEN?,” Bey wrote on Facebook, including a link to GLSEN’s Kindness in Action initiative, which is combating bullying in schools that targets LGBTQ kids.
