Reality TV star, Caitlyn Jenner, has slammed United States president Donald Trump after he removed federal protections for rights of transgender students.
The rights, which included allowing transgender students use whichever toilets they chose to, was instituted by the Obama administration.
The protections meant that funding would be denied to schools which didn’t comply, but Trump has now removed the protections, saying schools should make their own rules.
“I have a message for President Trump, from one Republican to another. This is a disaster,” Jenner said in a video she tweeted, while looking directly at the camera. “And you can still fix it. You made a promise to protect the LGBTQ community. Call me.”
“I have a message for the trans kids of America. You’re winning,” Jenner also said in the video, encouraging them to make their voices heard. “I know it doesn’t feel like it today or every day, but you’re winning. Very soon we will win full freedom nationwide and it’s going to be with bipartisan support. You can help by checking out the National Center for Transgender Equality and letting Washington hear you loud and clear.”
“Now I have a message for the bullies: You’re sick,” the I Am Cait star said. “And because you’re weak, you pick on kids, you pick on women or anyone else you think is vulnerable. Apparently even becoming the attorney general isn’t enough to cure some people of their insecurities.”

Trump himself might have no issue with it, as he allowed Caitlyn Jenner to use the ladies’ toilet at the Trump Tower when she visited last year.
