The transgender Olympian and reality TV star weighs in on the presumptive GOP presidential nominee and Hillary Clinton.

Caitlyn Jenner has been outspoken about her conservative political views, and, in a new interview, she expresses support for the presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump.

In a conversation with Stat about transgender health, Jenner said that she doesn't agree with President Obama on the economy or constitutional rights but she appreciates what he's done for the transgender community. Jenner admits that presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton has been a strong LGBT rights advocate, but Jenner commends Donald Trump for his views.

"Everybody looks at the Democrats as being better with these issues. But Trump seems to be very much for women," said Jenner. "He seems very much behind the LGBT community because of what happened in North Carolina with the bathroom issue. He backed the LGBT community."

She does recognize, however, that with Trump "there's a lot more unknowns."

"With Hillary, you pretty much know what you’re gonna get with the LGBT community," Jenner told the publication.

In the past, Jenner has said that while Democrats might be better than Republicans on transgender rights, she would never vote for Hillary Clinton.

"She could care less about women. She cares about herself," said Jenner while debating politics on I Am Cait. When he was still running for president, Ted Cruz also earned Jenner's praise. She said she likes him and called him a "great constitutionalist." She did, however, admit that he's "one of the worst" politicians when it comes to trans rights.

When Donald Trump said Jenner could use any bathroom she wished to use in Trump Tower, she visited his building and used the women's restroom. 

"Thank you, Donald, really appreciate it," she said after using the facilities. "And by the way, Ted, nobody got molested."
