Watch: Caitlyn Jenner tells Tucker Carlson why she's disappointed in Trump, but still a Republican

Fox News host Tucker Carlson kicked off his new time slot Monday by interviewing transgender Republican Caitlyn Jenner, formerly known as Olympic decathlete Bruce Jenner.

The transgender reality television star discussed her thoughts on President Donald Trump's first 100 days in office, as well as why she continues to vote Republican.

"I'm on the Republican conservative side, and he wound up being our candidate. So certainly I was going to vote for him," Jenner said of Trump. "He looked like he would be pretty good on all LGBT issues, which is important, because my loyalties do not lie with Donald Trump, my loyalties do not lie with the Republican party, my loyalties and what I'm fighting for is my community: the LGBT community."

"He's kind of disappointed me in the first 100 days on those issues," Jenner added of Trump.

Carlson interjected to remind Jenner that failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was the candidate in the 2016 election who had the support of LGBT groups across the country.

"This was an election with Hillary Clinton in it who is obviously strong on LGBT issues, she took a lot of money from LGBT groups. It seems like that would be a no-brainer, why didn't you vote for her," Carlson asked.

"Because I'm not a one-issue voter. I believe in a limited government, I believe in our Constitution," Jenner replied. "I would rather convince the Republican party to do a better job when it comes to all LGBT issues than to try to convince Democrats to lower taxes and lower regulations and let our country thrive financially and economically."

Carlson then asked Jenner about the pressure to be a one-issue voter and vote Democratic simply because of the LGBT platform.

Jenner agreed with Carlson that many in the transgender community expected her to vote Democratic simply because of her social status.

"A lot in our community... were very upset that I was a Republican," she said. "From that standpoint, it's been pretty tough."

Speaking on the confusion surrounding transgender issues and whether people are genetically predetermined to be transgender, Carlson asked Jenner about the possibility of good people being confused on the issue.

"Do you think it's possible for people of good will, people of faith, people of generous spirits — to be confused at least, or baffled and say 'I'm not sure I understand this,' but still be good people?" he asked.

"Honestly, I've been fighting this war for the last couple of years and I don't even think in my lifetime most people will get it. But we need to bring this subject forward. Why? Because of the youth," Jenner said, pushing the need for people to understand the issues the transgender community faces.
