Caitlyn Jenner says she'd consider a political run

27 April, 2017

She spoke Tuesday at an event, "Imagining Men & Women: Caitlyn Jenner on Transgender Identity and Courage", about why she has repeatedly turned down invitations to golf with President Donald Trump.

The women at the table also asked about Jenner's own political aspirations, after Jedediah Bila said she'd make a good politician herself. Jenner told CNN that she believes that Trump is the man the USA needs right now as his out of the box ideas are what "we need to turn this country around".

"Would I be better working from the inside?" I'll come after him and come after Republicans when they start screwing up my community. Here they are, ranked from "I'm sorry, what?" to "Girl, bye".

After the decathlon, Wheaties boxes, the Kardashian media empire, two seasons of I Am Cait and the release of her bestselling memoir, what's next for Caitlyn Jenner?

The Olympic gold medalist told a crowd that she is considering where she could be more effective for the American people and whether she should work on the inside of government or continue work on her foundation. "And if that's the case, if I find it's on the inside, I would seriously look at it".

On running for office: "I don't have any more secrets".

While the former Olympian said she hasn't seriously weighed her options yet, a political run isn't out of the question.

Jenner reaffirmed her Republican leanings, saying that she's always "believed in something called the Constitution and limited government", and that the GOP leans closer to limited government than the Democrats, in her opinion. "Trump, who I talked to before the inauguration about a lot of LGBT issues ..." "If I was publicly seen with him, my community would go nuts", she said. On April 24, she stated that her loyalties ultimately belonged to the transgender community. This is the way I saw things in my life.Her perception of what happened and my perception are different, which is ok.

"Yeah, I've gotten criticized because I come from a more conservative Republican side, but my loyalties are not with the Republican Party". I like a thriving economy.

Jenner's The Secrets of My Life arrives on store shelves Tuesday.
