Trump's outreach to transgender celebrity rejected.

In the name of inclusiveness and tolerance, transgender celebrity Caitlyn (formerly, Bruce) Jenner has rejected a social invitation by President Donald Trump.

In a video clip from Jenner’s interview airing Friday on ABC’s 20/20, Jenner says Trump extended an invitation to play golf when the two met at an inaugural event – and that the former U.S. Olympic athlete rejected the invitation.

“I did say hi at a cocktail party. He wanted me to come play golf with him,” she says. “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.”

In February, the Trump administration rescinded a Title IX related school guidance extending sex discrimination protects to students of one biological sex who decide they want to use the bathrooms of the opposite biological sex.
