Caitlyn Jenner slams high-tax California, praises Florida: ‘I would leave’

Caitlyn Jenner on high-tax California: ‘I would leave’

Fox News contributor Caitlyn Jenner argues that she doesn’t ‘blame’ Californians leaving the state for Florida due to high taxes and unemployment rates. 

Olympic gold medalist and Fox News contributor Caitlyn Jenner ripped California’s high taxes and said she "would leave" the Golden State for Florida.

"California…boy, is it not the Golden State any longer. High taxes. High unemployment. We've lost 18,000 companies. We lost a congressional seat because we have less people living here," Jenner told "Varney & Co." Wednesday. 

Jenner continued to assert that everybody is moving to Florida and that she "can’t blame" them for it.

"[Florida has] a common sense, smart governor…DeSantis, and he's doing the right thing — from COVID to the way he's treating the public, to masks — and everybody wants to go there," she explained.

Caitlyn Jenner: California ‘no longer’ Golden State amid high taxes, unemployment

Fox News contributor Caitlyn Jenner discusses why people are fleeing California amid high taxes. 

California is considered one of the most expensive states to live in; its capital, Sacramento, is deemed as having the most unaffordable housing market in America. The Golden State also currently has the highest state-wide gas prices, averaging around $6 per gallon.

"I would move out of here if I could, but my whole family's here," Jenner remarked.

Varney asked Jenner if this policy was the "right thing" for the trans community.

"No," she answered. "It's again another program, especially out here by the radical left…in California to get people not to work. The trans community…non-binary community is really being used right here."
