You don’t want a gfci breaker or receptacle feeding another gfci receptacle downstream.
They will all be subject to nuisance tripping.

As posted above it is fine to have one GFCI feeding another if you use the line side to clamp the extended cable to the next GFCI. I would never want to feed a GFCI from the load side of another GFCI though.

If I was doing that I would rather do it with a pigtail from the back of the box though just like I like that method over using the second set of screws when extending a circuit.
