GOP gubernatorial candidate Caitlyn Jenner (R-Calif.) revealed she hopes to approach public office the same way President Trump did. During an interview on The View, Jenner discussed her campaign to unseat Gov. Gavin Newsom (D-Calif.) in an upcoming recall election.
Host Joy Behar brought up the 2020 election repeatedly in an attempt to get Jenner to weigh in on the outcome of the presidential race. Jenner refused to cave to the pressure by continuing to express why she admires Trump and why she’s running to lead the Golden State.
“I think Donald Trump did do some good things and what I liked about Donald Trump is he was a disruptor,” she explained. “I want to do the same thing. I want to go in and be a thoughtful disruptor in Sacramento. We need to change the system and I want to change that system for the positive.”
Jenner went on to say she’s in the race for the people and not the special interests before getting cut off by the hosts.
