Caitlyn Jenner says GOP frontrunner Donald Trump told her she could use his women’s restroom facilities at Trump International Hotel and Tower if she ever needed to pee in a transgender-friendly restroom. Jenner took Trump up on his offer while strolling the streets of New York and filmed the whole uneventful ordeal for her fans. Caitlyn thanked the business mogul for allowing her to relieve herself in the ladies’ room and took a jab at Ted Cruz, noting “nobody got molested” while she was using the facilities.
The Daily Mail reports that Caitlyn Jenner is showing her support for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump once again, this time praising him for his stance on the transgender restroom issue. Jenner notes that Donald Trump promised her that she would be welcome in the women’s restroom at Trump Tower anytime. The transgender reality star quickly took the businessman up on his offer and walked right into the ladies’ restroom without issue.

Caitlyn begins her short video with a look of dismay, noting, “oh my god, a transgender woman in New York, I need to pee” before looking up and saying “Trump International Hotel, I love this.” She then explains that just last week Donald Trump informed the transgender reality star that she could “take a pee anywhere in a Trump facility.” Therefore, Jenner decided to see exactly how easy it would be for a transgender woman to walk into the women’s restroom on a Trump property.
Trump followed through on his promise and Caitlyn had an uneventful trip to the ladies’ room in the hotel.
Though Jenner had nothing but kind words for Trump, she did take a few jabs at Ted Cruz, saying that “nobody was molested” when she used the restroom in Trump Tower.
“Thanks Donald, I really appreciate it. And by the way Ted [Cruz], nobody got molested.”
CNN notes that GOP presidential hopeful Donald Trump is taking a different stance regarding the issue of transgender restrooms than his opponent Ted Cruz. Trump has spoken out against the North Carolina bill HB2 which prohibits transgender people from using the restroom that corresponds with the gender they identify with. Trump called the law unnecessary, noting that there have been “very few complaints” regarding transgender members of the community using public restrooms and saying that people should use the restroom that they feel is most appropriate.
“There have been very few complaints the way it is. People go, they use the bathroom that they feel is appropriate. There has been so little trouble, and the problem with what happened in North Carolina is the strife and the economic punishment that they’re taking. So I would say that’s probably the best way.”
Though Trump says people should use the restroom that they feel is most appropriate regardless of sex at birth, Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz disagrees and says Trump thinks “men should be able to go into the girls’ bathroom if they want to.” He says that mentality is “stark-raving nuts.”
“He thought that men should be able to go into the girls’ bathroom if they want to. Now let me ask you: Have we gone stark-raving nuts?”
Cruz has also used funds to release presidential campaign ads speaking out about his concerns regarding transgender use of public restrooms, saying “a grown man pretending to be a woman” should not be allowed in the ladies’ room.
“Should a grown man pretending to be a woman be allowed to use the women’s restroom? The same restroom used by your daughter? Your wife? Donald Trump thinks so. It’s not appropriate. It’s not safe. It’s PC nonsense that’s destroying America. Donald Trump won’t take on the PC police. He’s one of them.”
What do you think about Caitlyn Jenner’s open support of GOP candidate Donald Trump? Do you agree or disagree with Trump on his stance that people should just use the restroom they think is most appropriate and skip all the laws regulating bathroom use?
