Caitlyn Jenner is Team Ted Cruz!

The conservative I Am Cait star sat down with Dawn Ennis, a transgender journalist from Advocate magazine, where the former Olympian revealed she hopes to become "trans ambassador" to the Republican presidential hopeful.

"I like Cruz," Jenner admitted, even though she doesn't necessarily agree with his views on transgender issues. "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 told Ennis that she met the U.S. senator from Texas -- who previously stated that supporting equal treatment to transgender students is "lunacy" -- about a year ago, and "he was very nice."

"I get it. The Democrats are better when it comes to these types of social issues. I understand that," the 66-year-old reality star continued in defense of her statement. "Number one, 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. 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."

Though Cruz hasn't retracted his statements on how the transgender youth should use separate bathroom facilities at schools, Jenner hopes she and her gal pals can teach him a lesson or two on transgender issues.

"Wouldn't it be great, let's say he goes on to be president," Jenner boasted, "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?"

When Ennis suggested Jenner become his "trans ambassador," she immediately embraced the exciting idea.

"Yes, trans ambassador to the president of the United States," Jenner replied. "So we can say, 'Ted, love what you're doing but here's what's going on.'"

A handful of other celebrities have already taken to social media to show their support for the various 2016 presidential candidates, including Katy Perry, who's rallying for Hillary Clinton.

On Wednesday, the 31-year-old pop star performed a few of her hits at a fundraising campaign for the Democratic presidential hopeful at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. Perry was even joined by her rumored boyfriend, Orlando Bloom! The "Roar" singer also performed at one of Clinton's rallies in Des Moines, Iowa, last October, where she had the lucky honors of "taking over Hill's Instagram for the day."
