Caitlyn Jenner is facing a backlash on social media for saying that she would like to be Ted Cruz's “trans ambassador.”

In an interview with gay glossy The Advocate, Jenner, a Republican, revealed that she backs Cruz's presidential ambitions.

“I like Ted Cruz,” Jenner answered when asked who she supports for the Republican presidential nomination.

She went on to say that if Cruz won the White House, she would like to advise him on transgender issues.

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

Jenner faced a backlash on social media.

“She isn't doing anything to advance LGBT politically,” wrote one user on Twitter.

“I've the greatest respect 4 #CaitlynJenner as a woman but u vote like a rich white man. #tedcruz? Seriously?” wrote another user.

Cruz has a long record of opposing LGBT rights.

Last year he criticized as “ridiculous” a court ruling that allows transgender students to use the locker room that corresponds to their gender identity.
