Donald Trump, juggling concerns of social conservatives and moderates about same-sex marriage and transgender rights, reportedly spoke with Caitlyn Jenner ahead of Monday's debate on the Republican Party's platform.

The New York Times reports the "supportive" call from the former Olympic decathlete came just a few days after the presumptive presidential nominee met with hundreds of religious conservatives in New York City.

The Times notes GOP convention delegates are expected to have a contentious debate Monday on whether to adopt a provision defending laws banning transgender men and women from using the public restroom of their choice.

About half of all states are now suing the Obama administration’s directive to protect transgender students. 

The Hill notes that in April, Trump said North Carolina was "paying a big price" for its law requiring transgenders to use restrooms that correspond with their biological sex. 

Officials should just “leave it the way it is,” Trump said – adding that Jenner could use whatever bathroom she preferred at his Trump Tower. 

Trump has promised not to interfere with the party’s platform, according to The Times.
