An unnamed member of the incoming administration told Page Six that a dance with Jenner would be “a brilliant idea” for Trump.
An unnamed Republican suggested dancing with the Olympic gold medalist formerly known as Bruce would be a way for Trump to offer an olive branch to LGBT Americans who are concerned about his presidency.
“The image of Trump dancing with Caitlyn would send a strong message that he supports gay rights and trans rights,” the Republican told Page Six. “A picture is worth a thousand tweets.”
But Jenner’s publicist pushed back a bit, telling Page Six that they “can’t deal in hypotheticals.”
“We’ll just have to wait and see,” the publicist said.
People Magazine reported that Jenner will attend the inauguration as a guest of the American Unity Fund, a conservative organization that works to promote the rights of LGBT Americans.

“Caitlyn has been a Republican all her life and she sees this as an opportunity to represent and defend the LGBTQ community within the party,” a source close to Jenner told People.
Jenner has said that it was more difficult to “come out” as a Republican than it was to reveal she is a transgender woman.
