Caitlyn Jenner News: Reality Star Appearing At President-Elect Donald Trump's Inauguration? [VIDEO]
The 'I Am Cait' star may be one of few celebrities to attend the Jan. 20 event.
Caitlyn Jenner is reportedly attending President-elect Donald Trump's inauguration on Jan. 20.
The transgender star's conservative politics have been controversial among many of her friends and fellow Hollywood celebrities, but she is set to attend Trump's inauguration, according to Us Weekly. Jenner notably fought with many of her friends on her now-canceled E! reality show I Am Cait, blasting Hillary Clinton despite her more accepting stance on transgender rights.
The 67-year-old defended her views on Bill Simmons' HBO show Any Given Wednesday back in August, saying that she is a big believer in the Constitution.
"I think the Republican side, although I've been very disappointed with them over the last 10 to 20 years, has a better opportunity to bring this country back to really, as close as you can to what it was," Jenner explained. "I have kind of positioned myself with the Republican party to try to help these people understand. [To help] the Republican party understand what the issues are for the LBGT community."
Jenner previously supported Sen. Ted Cruz in the presidential race, saying she wanted to be his "trans ambassador." She told The Advocate: "I get it. The Democrats are better when it comes to these types of social issues. I understand that," Jenner said. However, the E! reality star noted, "if we don't have a country, we don't have trans issues. We need jobs. We need a vibrant economy. I want every trans person to have a job."
Jenner continued, "With $19 trillion in debt and it keeps going up, we're spending money we don't have. Eventually, it's going to end. And I don't want to see that. Socialism did not build this country. Capitalism did. Free enterprise. The people built it. And they need to be given the opportunity to build it back up."
Meanwhile, much of Trump's cabinet has been criticized for their stance on LGBT issues, starting with Vice President-elect Mike Pence, with his belief that marriage equality would bring about "society collapse" in addition to his support of conversion therapy.
