When asked about North Carolina's controversial ordinance that forces transgender people to use bathrooms aligned with the gender they were assigned at birth, Trump said that North Carolina law makers make a mistake with the ordinance, but that he would permit Jenner to use any bathroom she felt comfortable using in his Trump Tower buildings.
"North Carolina did something that was very strong," the Republican presidential front-runner said. "And they're paying a big price," he added, referencing to the growing economic boycott against the state.
Jenner has supported Trump in the past; on her reality show I Am Cait she said she believes Trump would be "very good for women's issues." However, she's also said she likes Trump's opponent Ted Cruz - who staunchly supports the North Carolina ordinance. Jenner has said that while Cruz is a "conservative constitutionalist" he's also one of the worst presidential candidates when it comes to trans issues.
After Trump's statement, his opponent Ted Cruz accused Trump's disapproval of the ordinance as political correctness. "Donald, on television this morning, said, gosh, 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? This is the political correctness," he said at a rally in Frederick, Md on Thursday.
