[WATCH] Caitlyn Jenner responds to Trump on transgender rights order
Caitlyn Jenner told Trump that "from one Republican to another, this is a disaster" and asked the president to call her.
This follows the US president’s latest executive order that revoked landmark guidance to public schools to let transgender students use the bathrooms of their choice.
In a video posted on Twitter, Jenner describes the order as "a disaster".
Jackie Evancho, a teenage singer with a transgender sister, also requested a meeting in a Twitter message late on Wednesday, minutes after the administration revoked landmark guidance to public schools.
White House spokesman Sean Spicer, asked at a briefing if Trump would meet with Evancho, said the president would welcome a meeting with her.
As of Thursday evening, more than 10,000 Twitter users had liked the request by Evancho, a classical crossover singer who rose to fame on the TV show America's Got Talent.
Evancho was the first performer announced for Trump's inauguration ceremony, an event that a number of other entertainers shunned because of the president's views.
Trump, a prolific Twitter user, has not responded to the request, Evancho said on Thursday during an appearance with her sister, Juliet, on ABC's Good Morning America.
"I just want to enlighten him on what my sister [went] through every single day in school," she said.
The Trump administration's action on Wednesday reversed a signature initiative of former president Barack Obama, whose Justice and Education departments had threatened to withhold funding for schools that did not comply with its guidance.
