Caitlyn Jenner May Attend Trump's Inauguration

A source says Caitlyn Jenner was invited to President-elect Donald Trump's Jan. 20 inauguration, and accepted.

If confirmed by Jenner's representatives, she may one of the relatively few celebrities to attend, Us Weekly reports.

Trump has allegedly struggled to find celebrities willing to perform at, or even attend, his inauguration.

It's something the head of Trump's inaugural committee, Tom Barrack, says they are fine with -- adding they want the ceremony to be more "about the people."

"His instruction to me was the campaign is over, I am now president for all the people," said Barrack, the Daily Mail reports. "I want you to build a bridge and tie them back in."

"So what we've done instead of trying to surround him with what people consider A-listers is we are going to surround him with the soft sensuality of the place," he added.

Meanwhile, although Jenner, 66, says she never "outwardly supported anybody," she showed signs of support for Republican candidates in the 2016 presidential elections.

Jenner also spoke out against Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton on her reality show, "I Am Cait," the New York Daily News reports.

While it appears she may have been a fan of Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas at first, offering to become his "trans ambassador," she has since vocalized her approval of Trump.

"He seems very much behind the LGBT community because of what happened in North Carolina with the bathroom issue," Jenner once said, referring to North Carolina's controversial bill making it illegal for transgender citizens to use bathrooms according to their gender preference.

Jenner says shortly after, Trump invited her to use any restroom of her choice in any of his buildings.

 "He backed the LGBT community," she added.

Jenner has previously stated she hopes she can use her status to further promote lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender causes.

“I have kind of positioned myself with the Republican party to try to help these people understand," she once said, while explaining her Republican beliefs. "[To help] the Republican Party understand what the issues are for the LBGT community.”
