Caitlyn Jenner opened up about her thoughts on gay marriage and vowed to come after the Republican party and President Donald Trump over the transgender bathroom issue.

In a segment aired on Thursday from her interview with Diane Sawyer, the 67-year-old former Olympic gold medalist declared that she is “100 percent behind gay marriage” as she admitted her thoughts on it have evolved. (RELATED: Caitlyn Jenner: Donald Trump Is Better For Women Than Democrats)

“I am 100 percent behind gay marriage, let’s clear that up right now,” Jenner explained. “It was [an evolving process], but I am — get it straight — I am all for it.”

Jenner also admitted that while she voted for Trump and went to his inauguration, she is not happy with him and Republicans over his rollback of Obama-era bathroom policies for transgender students, according to Entertainment Tonight.

“Here’s the deal — yes, I did vote for Trump,” Jenner said. “But here’s the deal breaker with the Republican party. And the deal breaker is: You mess with my community, you do the wrong thing with our community, you don’t give us equality and a fair shot, I’m coming after you.”

“When it comes to all equality issues for the entire LGBT community okay, what we need is federal guidance — just like the previous administration said that it was okay to serve as a trans person in the military,” she added. “We have frontline people, I’m talking Marines, trans guys … on the frontline fighting for our country.”

“When I was at the inauguration, I did say hi [to Trump] at a cocktail party … He wanted me to come play golf with him,” she continued. “At that time, I thought it was a pretty good idea, but since Title IX, it’s not a good idea, and so, I won’t be playing golf with him.”

Jenner first shared with the world that she was a transgender woman in an interview two years ago with Diane Sawyer. The two sat down for a new interview  to talk about Jenner’s life since the transition, which airs tomorrow Friday April, 21.
