“I like Ted Cruz,” she said, according to The Advocate. "I think he’s very conservative and a great constitutionalist and a very articulate man. But I also think, he’s an evangelical Christian and probably one of the worst ones on trans issues.

“Let’s say he goes on to be president,” Jenner continued. "I [would] 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?"

“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,' ” she added.

Jenner also said she remains a dedicated conservative because of economic matters despite disagreeing with the GOP's stance on social issues.

“I get it — the Democrats are better on these kinds of social issues. I understand that,” she said.

“No. 1, if we don’t have a country, we don’t have trans issues,” Jenner said. "We need jobs. We need a vibrant economy. I want every trans person to have a job."

“With $19 trilling in debt, and it keeps going up, we’re spending money we don’t have,” she added. "Eventually, it’s going to end. And I don’t want to see that.

“Socialism did not build this country," she continued. "Capitalism did — free enterprise. The people built it, and they need to be given the opportunity to build it back up.”

Jenner said she met Cruz over a year ago and that the senator was "very nice."

“What I have learned in this community is that every journey is different. No two stories are the same. Not even close."
