Jenner Hails Trump, Backs Border Wall In Fox Interview

The Insider reports:

Caitlyn Jenner praised Donald Trump for “disrupting” American politics and said she aims to do the same if she is elected to office in her first major TV interview as a candidate for California governor. The 71-year-old former Olympian and reality TV star, who came out publicly as a trans woman in 2015, spoke with Fox News’ Sean Hannity from her private airplane hangar in Malibu, California.

“What I liked about Donald Trump is he was a disruptor, you know,” she said. “He came in and shook the system up, OK. A lot of people didn’t like that in Washington, D.C., but he came in and shook the system up. I think he did some things that I agree with, some things I didn’t agree with on trans issues, LGBT issues. I was more hopeful at the beginning. And – but there were some good things he did.”

SFGate reports:

Notably, Jenner said she would: oppose California’s sanctuary state status and work with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to remove undocumented immigrants, lift all COVID-19 restrictions, effective immediately, support controlled burns for forest management, terminate the long-proposed high-speed rail system, invest in desalination off the California coast to provide more water in drought years.

Variety reports:

Though Jenner described her politics during the interview as fiscally conservative and more socially progressive, she cracked down on immigration, saying she would aim to eliminate California’s sanctuary status and supports Trump’s wall.

“We need to spend some money to have a fair and equitable immigration system in this state… I am all for the wall,” Jenner said. “I would secure the wall. We can’t have a state, we can’t have a country without a wall.”
