Caitlyn Jenner has expressed support for Donald Trump, arguing that if he was elected he would be good for women’s issues.

Speaking in a new clip from her TV series, I Am Cait, the transgender icon and reality TV star also revealed she would not be voting for Hillary Clinton.

When asked about Trump, the 66-year-old said she wasn't a "big fan" because of "his macho attitude".

"I think he would have a hard time with women - when he doesn’t even realise it.

“And it doesn’t mean he wouldn’t be good for women’s issues. I think he’d be very good for women’s issues. I don’t think he’s out there to destroy women or take things away, or do any of that kind of stuff.”

When asked if she would vote for Trump or Clinton, she remained adamant that she would not be voting for Clinton under any circumstances.

“I would never, ever, ever vote for Hillary… if Hillary becomes president the country is over.

“You can’t fix immigration, you can’t fix the economy. It’s got to stop. We don’t have a country, and Hilary won’t do it… Tell me what she’s done... She's a political hack. That's all she is. She's done nothing.”

Jenner went on to add: “She was a lousy Senator. She was horrible. Look at all the things that are going on in the Middle East. All because of what she did. Look at Benghazi. She lied to us. She’s a f***ing liar.”

In an on-camera aside, Jenner explained that her conservative political ideals have not been changed since her transition.

“Just because I'm a woman now doesn’t make me all of a sudden liberal,” she said.

This is not the first time Jenner’s conservative views have been in the limelight - the television personality was vocal about her support for Republican candidate and Texan senator Ted Cruz a few weeks ago.

In an interview with transgender woman and former ABC producer Dawn Ennis in Advocate, Jenner said Cruz “was very nice”.

Explaining why she would support a Republican over a Democrat, Jenner positioned herself as a staunch conservative.

”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,” she said.

“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.”
