President Donald Trump is in the political crosshairs of transgender activist Caitlyn Jenner.

The famous Olympian formerly known as a Bruce Jenner sat down with ABC News’ Diane Sawyer for a wide-ranging interview set to air Friday night. The reality TV star — who voted for Mr. Trump — said the Republican Party’s attitude toward the LGBT community has been a “deal-breaker.”

“The deal-breaker is you mess with my community, you do the wrong thing with my community, you don’t give us equality and a fair shot, I’m coming after you,” the celebrity said.

The two also talked about a golf-invitation that Mr. Trump extended at a cocktail party during the presidential inauguration ceremonies.

“I’m trying to get — especially the Republican Party — to change. 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,” the 67-year-old added.

Title IX, a 1972 ruling by the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, prohibits educational institutions from discriminating against an individual based on gender.

ABC’s full interview is scheduled to air at 10 p.m. EST.
