This is definitely going to ruffle a few feathers!
Although Caitlyn Jenner has been a proud proponent of transgender rights, she is also a proud Republican — something that has made her polarizing figure in pop culture.
Recently, the I Am Cait star spoke with GQ UK about her political beliefs, where she acknowledges that her right-wing views seem contradictory to her LGBT advocacy.

While the athlete realizes Republicans haven't been the most vocal supporters of trans rights, she is willing to forgive this fact because of their focus on the economy.
She said :
"I know that. I'm not a dummy. But I just think we need a more conservative approach, with limited government, limited taxes. I would like to see our country as the best place in the world to do business and right now it's not."
Does that mean she will back Donald Trump?!
"I just want to see how it all works out. I don't want to make too many comments. I made a comment that I liked Ted Cruz and he – as far as trans issues go – is probably the worst one of the lot."
So pretty much yes.
Although the interview took place before Trump became the presumptive Republican nominee, Caitlyn was always willing to help him with his presidential campaign.
"And if he gets there, Trump may need some help too! And I'm willing to help him out, OK? Whoever is the candidate, I will do my damnedest to have a meeting with him and talk to him about the issues that we are concerned about."
On her show, the former KUWTK star made headlines when she said the businessman would be a better president for women's issues than Hillary Clinton. Back in April, Cait even praised Trump for his stance on transgender bathroom rights.
Whether you agree with her or not, Jenner sticks to her guns!
