It’s probably safe to say that this isn’t going to do it, but Caitlyn Jenner took a stab at changing Trump’s mind anyway.
Jenner spoke out after President Donald Trump removed federal guidelines for transgender students in schools.
Transgender advocates were angry with Jenner for not speaking after the president removed a mandate set by former President Barack Obama that directed schools to allow students to use the bathroom and locker room facilities of whatever gender they said they were.
A directive that has been stalled by the courts.

I wonder how @Caitlyn_Jenner feels now that the man she voted for is taking her rights away.

@Caitlyn_Jenner Then tell them trans kids are bullied mercilessly and many try or are successful at committing suicide.

Trump & his surrogates say they have no problem with Caitlyn Jenner using the women bathroom but only Caitlyn Jenner & no other trans person

But Jenner did speak out after the backlash.
You’re winning,” Jenner said in a video on social media. “I know it doesn’t feel like it today or everyday, but you’re winning.”

Jenner discussed an upcoming court case with a transgender youth named Gavin Grimm and then spoke directly to the president.
“From one Republican to another, this is a disaster, and you can still fix it,” Jenner said.
“You made a promise to protect the LGBTQ community,” the reality star added. “Call me.”
