An insider close to the famous family exclusively told The Sun that Kim, 40, “will NOT be endorsing Caitlyn Jenner.”
“She has made that clear to her friends and family already and it looks like Kourtney, Khloe and Kendall will follow suit,” they added.
The informant then explained that Kylie, 23, remains “on the fence” on how to handle the situation.
“She does not want to let her dad down as they’ve always had the closest relationship but she does not agree with her politics.
“While Kylie wants to be supportive, none of the sisters feel comfortable endorsing Caitlyn and are especially hesitant after Kanye’s disastrous presidential run,” the source said.

The insider explained momager Kris Jenner – who was married to Caitlyn from 1991-2015 – is “very much against” any of her daughters supporting the family’s latest political venture.
“It has nothing to do with their personal history. It’s bad for business and Kris is trying to make sure her kids remember that,” the source claimed.
A rep for the Kardashians did not immediately respond to The Sun’s request for comment.
Both Kim and Kylie have been deemed “billionaires” by Forbes due to their successful business ventures – including SKIMS, KKW Beauty and Kylie Cosmetics.

The Malibu resident wrote: “California has been my home for nearly 50 years. I came here because I knew that anyone, regardless of their background or station in life, could turn their dreams into reality,” the website read.
“But for the past decade, we have seen the glimmer of the Golden State reduced by one-party rule that places politics over progress and special interests over people. Sacramento needs an honest leader with a clear vision.”
Kim, Kourtney, Kendall, Khloe and Kylie all appeared to celebrate when President Joe Biden, a Democrat, unseated Republican rival Donald Trump in November.

Khloe said she wanted to cry “tears of joy”, Kourtney wrote she was “joyful”, Kendall said she was “emotional, relived and filled with joy”, Kim shared red, white and blue hearts while sharing a tweet from Biden, and Kylie reposted a video of Vice President Kamala Harris.
Caitlyn previously backed Donald Trump and had even been pictured wearing a “Make America Great Again” red hat, but in 2018 removed her endorsement due to his anti-LGBTQ policies.
She wrote in The Washington Post: “I thought Trump would help trans people. I was wrong.”

However, her move to stand as a Republican has already made waves amongst her fellow celebs who accused the party of “denying her existence”.
At the 2016 Republican National Convention that she “got more trouble for coming out as a Republican than I did for being trans.”
In 2020, however, the year that marked the five-year anniversary of her transition, she said she had “changed her political views.”
