LOS ANGELES | Caitlyn Jenner sent out a message Thursday calling out President Donald Trump for dropping federal protections for transgender students.

“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,” said Jenner on a video posted to her Twitter account.

Urging support for the National Center for Transgender Equality and Gavin Grimm — the trangender student who chose to use the boys bathroom and sparked a national debate climbing all the way up to the Supreme Court — Jenner went on to call out bullies (including Attorney General Jeff Sessions) and Trump himself, telling him to call her, “from one republican to another.”

“This is a disaster, and you can still fix it,” Jenner said, reminding Trump he previously made a promise to “protect the LGBTQ community.”
