Kim Kardashian stands behind Hillary Clinton.
The 35-year-old reality star took to her app on Friday to publicly endorse the Democratic presidential nominee after reports surfaced that she was “on the fence” about who to vote for.
“A ‘quote’ of mine was released yesterday causing my phone to blow up by friends, family and every both candidates’ camps, so I want to explain the context in which I said I was ‘on the fence’ about my vote,” she started her essay, referencing an excerpt from her recent Wonderland interview published by The Evening Standard.
Despite supporting Clinton at a fundraiser last month — and even taking a quick selfie — Kardashian admits that she wasn’t always sure about where to cast her vote.
“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,” she continued. “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.”
Kardashian says she then turned to proud Republican Caitlyn Jenner for political advice.
“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,” the mother of two continued. “And so that’s what I did. I thought about the things that are so important to me that they outweigh everything else, such as control and protecting women’s rights to safe and legal abortion.”
“I found that without a doubt, I stand with Hillary. I’m with her. I believe Hillary will best represent our country and is the most qualified for the job,” she explained. “This year, I’m not just voting for myself, but also for my children, and I took that into careful consideration when I made my decision.”
Kardashian goes on to say that while she has publicly made her choice, she “would never judge anyone based on their political or religious beliefs.”
“I believe that both candidates have the intention of making the country a safer and stronger place for every American, they just have different ideas about how we get there,” she concluded. “God bless America for allowing us to even make these decisions — there are so many in this world who are not so privileged.”
While Kardashian has made her decision on who to support, Jenner recently stated that she “has not outwardly supported anybody.”
“It was easy to come out as trans, it was harder to come out as Republican,” she said at an RNC event hosted by the American Unity Fund.
