Jenner lamented: "I was a good parent but it never leaves you who you are".

"It doesn't make me regret my vote yet, but it is very disappointing and I have been very verbal about that", she said.

'Who do you desire?

Asked if she would stand for election, she added: "I have been asked that question quite a bit, to be honest with you - over the next year I'm looking into it. I really didn't know anything about the community but what I have realised in that two years is that every story is different". "I don't even go there".

The 67-year-old, a noted Republican, voted for Trump in the 2016 US presidential election but says she was "really upset" that the Trump administration revoked a federal policy instituted by President Barack Obama that allowed transgender students the choice of using either male or female school bathrooms.

'Do you want to talk about that?

Caitlyn did admit that Kris may not have been fully aware of her ultimate hopes: "Had I told her it would lead to the full transition? No!"

Jenner only recently announced that she had undergone reassignment surgery, sharing the news in her recently released memoir. Not just for me - because those things are very personal, wouldn't you agree?

"I do a lot of political stuff, but it's mostly behind-the-scenes", said Jenner, speaking on BBC's current affairs program Victoria Derbyshire in the U.K. Friday.

King quickly interjected and shared that he was only curious about the surgery as he simply wanted to know what it was like "to go through with it".

Caitlyn, 67, was known as Bruce Jenner until she came out as a trans woman during a television interview with Diane Sawyer in April 2015.

It is unclear where Jenner got that number or its accuracy. Jenner asked with a laugh. "Well no, fortunately I work". And that's the nice part about going through this, I've done everything i needed to do to get to this point in my life and be open about it.

Jenner later told King however that 'what's between your legs doesn't define who you are'.
