LOS ANGELES - Caitlyn Jenner says she backs the Republican party, but hasn't "outwardly supported anybody" in the presidential race, including GOP nominee Donald Trump.

During an appearance on HBO's "Any Given Wednesday," Jenner said she wants "to help the entire Republican Party do a better job when it comes to LGBT issues."

Jenner said at an event in Cleveland during last month's Republican National Convention that it was easier to come out as transgender than it was as a Republican.

After Trump said in April that transgender people should be able to use whatever bathroom they choose, Jenner made a video of herself going into the women's bathroom at New York's Trump International Hotel and Tower. 

Formerly known as Bruce Jenner, she transitioned to her new identity last year.
