Can I do a better job from the outside?

Caitlyn Jenner has recently confessed her desire to give politics a shot as she is looking for new opportunities to make a bigger impact on the world.

Jenner said she has worked with the American Unity Fund to get GOP lawmakers to better understand LGBT issues. "Kind of working the perimeter of the political scene, being open to talk to anybody?" she revealed her questions about entering the policial race.

News of Jenner's potential foray into politics came after musician Kid Rock hinted last week that he would run for the Senate in 2018.

In the interview, she said she had plans to meet with Nikki Haley, the United States' ambassador to the United Nations, to discuss the worldwide ramifications for being involved with the LGBTQ community.

If Jenner is successful, she is unlikely to be welcomed by everyone in the party, as her comments come two days after a GOP Congressman spoke out against the financial provision of gender reassignment for US troops, comparing transgender troops to castrated slaves. Or are you better off from the inside?

Many would expect her transgender status to align her with the Democrats, but Jenner is a staunch Republican. And we are in the process of determining that. Using her fame both in the sports community and as a reality TV star, Jenner found a political platform for herself during the contentious 2016 presidential election.

And Jenner suggested she could be the person to transform the Republican Party, saying she hopes that "equality" is at the forefront of its future. If she did run and win, though, Jenner would become the first openly transgender senator.

However, since Trump has taken office, Caitlyn Jenner has publicly admitted to being disappointed in the POTUS, reports Daily Mail. She also met with Nikki Haley, United States Ambassador to the United Nations, on Sunday. In addition to Ronald Reagan and Donald Trump, celebs such as Al Franken, Sonny Bono, and even Jerry Springer have all successfully pursued their political careers after being high-profile entertainers.
