A day ago, Kim Kardashian West made shockwaves when she revealed that a conversation with Caitlyn Jenner had left her “on the fence” about which candidate to pick in this fall’s US presidential election.
Now, just one day later, KKW has walked back that previous quote and reinforced what she knew all along: she’s with Hillary Clinton.

“There was a point when I wasn’t 100% sure I was even going to vote in this election; I didn’t want to vote blindly. But I also thought about how not voting would mean that I wasn’t making my voice heard, so I decided to talk to my closest friends and family who I love and trust, to have an open conversation about politics. I had a long conversation with Caitlyn, who has always been open about her political views, and she encouraged me to do my research before making my decision and then vote for the candidate whose policies aligned with the things that matter most to me.”
Caitlyn, of course, is a pretty staunch Republican and has been on the record as aDonald Trump supporter — so that led many to question whether Kim was wavering in her support of Clinton.
