CAITLYN JENNER ANNOUNCES RUN FOR GOVERNOR IN CALIFORNIA: 'I'M IN!'On immigration, Jenner expressed her support for"the wall" but stressed that California is still a"compassionate state" for those already in the country illegally. 

"I am all for the wall, I would secure the wall," Jenner said."We can't have a state, we can't have a country without a secure wall. You have two questions here. One is stopping people from coming in illegally into the state. And then the second question is, what do we do with the people that are here? We are a compassionate county, ok? We are a compassionate state. Some help, I mean, some people we're going to send back ok, no question about that. But I have met some of the greatest immigrants [in] our country."

Jenner also spoke about being a role model for the trans community. "For me as a trans woman, I think role models are extremely important for young people," Jenner said."Trans issues, people struggle with big time. Our suicide rate is nine times higher than the general public. And for me to be a role model, for them, to be out there, I am running for governor of the state of California, who would ever thunk that? We've never even had a woman governor. 

"But some are mad at you," Hannity told Jenner. "That's that, I don't care. I move on," Jenner dismissed her critics. Hannity's full sitdown with Jenner will air Wednesday, May 5th at 9PM/ET.CLICK HERE TO GET THE FOX NEWS APP

Jenner, a lifelong Republican, announced her bid for governor last month as millions of Californians pushed to remove Newsom from office triggering a recall election. The transgender activist and former reality star has put together a team of prominent Republican operatives to advise the campaign, including 2016 and 2020 Trump presidential campaign pollster Tony Fabrizio and Steven Cheung, a Trump White House and reelection campaign aide who worked on Arnold Schwarzenegger's successful 2003 gubernatorial recall election victory.

Caitlyn Jenner Weighs In On Immigration In Sean Hannity Interview: “I’m All For The Wall”In her first national TV interview since declaring her candidacy in the expected California gubernatorial recall, Caitlyn Jenner weighed in on immigration, telling Fox News’ Sean Hannity that… I'm all for her having a designated driver. Why are we even listening to her? We tried the 'reality show star' for president and look how that turned out? So freakin done with the BS She sucks.

Caitlyn Jenner discusses her politics with Sean Hannity at her private jet hangar in MalibuCaitlyn Jenner, the former Kardashian and Olympic gold medalist who is now running for governor of California, sat down with Fox News host Sean Hannity on Wednesday to discuss her bid to unseat Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) in an upcoming recall election. Since announcing her bid two weeks ago, Jenner, a Republican, has not been particularly detailed about her policies or politics. On Hannity, she described herself as fiscally conservative and more socially liberal, endorsed former President Donald Trump's border wall, stumbled over her views on immigration, opposed redirecting police funds, partially stood by her comments that transgender girls should not participate in girls sports, and used her house surviving a forest fire as an example of good forest management. Jenner 'displayed signs of a first-time candidate, occasionally stumbling over answers, rambling, or providing only generalities,' The Associated Press reports. 'But she also made no disastrous blunders that might follow her throughout the campaign.' Hannity interviewed Jenner near Malibu, at Jenner's private airplane hangar, a location she alluded to while discussing people leaving the state. Caitlyn Jenner to Hannity: 'My friends are leaving California. My hangar, the guy right across, he was packing up his hangar and I said, where are you going? And he says, 'I'm moving to Sedona, Arizona, I can't take it anymore. I can't walk down the streets and see the homeless'' — Aaron Rupar (atrupar) May 6, 2021 Discussing your hangar neighbor fleeing to Arizona on his private jet so he doesn't have to look at homeless people isn't exactly a woman-of-the-people pitch, but Trump showed you can flaunt your wealth and still run a populist campaign. Jenner told Hannity she liked that Trump was a 'disruptor' but disagreed with his LGBTQ policies, and hasn't agreed with anything President Biden has done. Biden beat Trump by more than 5 million votes in California. 'For a candidate like Caitlyn Jen If you own a plane maybe you can do something with your excess money to help the homeless What did he do about it? Nothing!

Caitlyn Jenner, California Gubernatorial Candidate, Says She's 'All For' Trump's WallThe former Olympic champion told Fox News that she would 'secure' the border wall and 'do my absolute best' to eliminate California's sanctuary protections. So Trumpy. Maybe even dimmer. Somebody need to shut this man up and send him home Someone actually died due to a car accident where she was involved and had no accountability whatsoever... so she really shouldn’t talk about secure or being pro police / laws

Caitlyn Jenner struggles to go from OMG moment to a campaign for California governorSpeaking with The Times on Thursday, Jenner fleshed out some of her proposals on governing the fifth biggest economy in the world.

Caitlyn Jenner says she's watched California 'crumble,' says friends are leaving over homeless populationJenner said that she supports fmr. President Trump's efforts to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, saying, “We can't have a state, we can't have a country without a secure wall.' So then most countries don't exist. Including the US Stop giving her coverage. Please. What are Jenner's poll numbers, and do they warrant this much attention?

Caitlyn Jenner to critics: 'I move on' she says in interviewCaitlyn Jenner has given her first interview since announcing two weeks ago that she's running for California governor. The Republican, whose campaign has elicited anger from some in the LGBTQ community, says “I move on” when it comes to her critics. so now that he is a woman does he still like women? 71 year old cross dresser runs for governor 'I don't listen i just run them over with my car and throw a couple of hundreds out the window on my way to my private jet hangar, yanno i just move on!'
