Caitlyn Jenner

The Republican reality star sent a message to Trump via Twitter, denouncing the administrations revocation of guidelines for trans kids and telling him, "Call me." 

When the Trump administration moved this week to rescind guidelines the Obama administration put in place to accommodate and protect transgender kids at school, social media blew up with outrage and calls to action to support trans kids. Some called out a single voice for not speaking out immediately, but she has now spoken up in a big way. Caitlyn Jenner released va ideo via Twitter today in which she rebuked the act of pulling the guidelines by calling the move "a disaster" in a direct address to Donald Trump.

She began with a message to trans kids affected by the Trump administration's act.

"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. "Very soon we will win full freedom nationwide, and it's going to be with bipartisan support."

Then Jenner fiercely addressed bullies, including Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

"Now I have a message for the bullies. You're sick. And because you're weak you pick on kids, you pick on women, or anyone else you think is vulnerable," Jenner said.

"Apparently, even becoming the attorney general isn't enough to cure some people of their insecurities."

Finally, Jenner, a Republican, addressed Trump, calling the situation "a disaster" that could be fixed, and urging him to "call me."
