, a Republican running for governor
, refused to say whether Donald Trump
won the 2020 presidential election
During an appearance on “The View
,” Joy Behar asked Jenner, “A lot of Republicans
in this country believe that Donald Trump won the election and not Joe Biden
. Are you... one of those Republicans?”
Jenner avoided the question.
“I'm not going to get into that because the election is over,” she said before praising the former president.
“I think Donald Trump did some good things, and what I liked about Donald Trump was that he was a disrupter when he was president,” Jenner said. “I want to do the same thing. I want to go in and be a thoughtful disrupter in Sacramento. We need to change the system, and I want to change it for the better.”
Jenner did not elaborate, but she did criticize the state's sales taxes and regulations.

She also claimed to be an “inclusive” Republican, rather than a “normal” one, which co-host Sara Haines disputed, citing Jenner’s opposition to transgender
girls competing on school girls sports
“As an Olympian and one of the world’s most famous athletes, your thoughts do carry some weight here,” Haines said. “You’ve called it a ‘fundamentally a question of fairness.’ Opponents say it’s pure discrimination. How significant do you think this issue is?”
Jenner evaded yet another time.
“To be honest with you, it’s a very minor issue in the state of California,” she responded, adding, “I have been very outspoken on this. You can go to my website... I explain everything. But we have so many bigger issues in this state.”
She stated that she would close the state's southern border and complete Trump's border wall
Jenner also strangely promised to “do what I would call the best job we can in protecting our eastern front,” despite the fact that, as The Wrap pointed out, there are no foreign borders to the east of California — only U.S. states
Gubernatorial candidate @Caitlyn_Jenner describes the controversial transgender athlete bans proposed in dozens of states as a “very small issue in the state of California.” “We have so many bigger issues in this state,” she says. https://t.co/f8u2wbJuik
