Caitlyn Jenner revealed she supports Republican candidate Ted Cruz and she wants to be his “trans ambassador” in an interview with The Advocate.
“I like Ted Cruz,” Jenner told The Advocate’s Dawn Ennis. “I think he’s very conservative, and a great constitutionalist and a very articulate man. I haven’t endorsed him or anything like that. But I also think he’s an Evangelical Christian, and probably one of the worst ones when it comes to trans issues.”
Jenner’s solution to helping Cruz with trans issues is to have her friends join her in assisting him on trans issues.
“Wouldn’t it be great — let’s say he goes on to be president,” Jenner says. “And I have all my girls on a trans-issues board to advise him on making decisions when it comes to trans issues. Isn’t that a good idea?”
Ennis asks if Jenner would like to be Cruz’s “trans ambassador” and Jenner agrees with the term.
“Yes, trans ambassador to the president of the United States, so we can say, ‘Ted, love what you’re doing, but here’s what’s going on,'” Jenner says.
The reality star also explained further why she supports Republicans instead of the more LGBT-friendly Democratic party.
“Number 1, if we don’t have a country, we don’t have trans issues. We need jobs. We need a vibrant economy. I want every trans person to have a job. With $19 trillion in debt and it keeps going up, we’re spending money we don’t have,” Jenner says.
“Eventually, it’s going to end. And I don’t want to see that. Socialism did not build this country. Capitalism did. Free enterprise. The people built it. And they need to be given the opportunity to build it back up,” Jenner concluded.
