On Sunday, Kellyanne Conway stated that she would be leaving the White House at the end of the month. Conway is one of U.S. President Donald Trump’s most influential and longest-serving advisers and his campaign manager during the stretch run of the 2016 race. Conway was the first woman to become a senior counsellor to the president after successfully steering a White House bid. She told President Trump of her resolution in the Oval Office.
In a resignation letter she posted on Sunday night, Conway reported that she needs to spend time with her four children. Her family has become a subject of Washington’s rumour mill and her husband, George, an outspoken Trump critic. Her husband was an attorney who denounced Trump after the 2016 campaign. She indicated that she disagree about plenty, but they are united on what matters most: the kids. She added that it will be less drama, more mama for her beloved children.
This week, she is expected to speak at the Republican National Convention. Since 2016, her husband had become a member of the Lincoln Project. This is an outside group of Republicans determined to defeat Trump. This politically adversarial marriage generated much speculation in the Beltway and online. On Sunday, George Conway also reported that he was taking a leave of absence from both the Lincoln Project and Twitter.
Kellyanne Conway supported Sen. Ted Cruz in the 2016 Republican primary and worked for years as a Republican pollster and operative and originally. In August that year, she jumped over to the Trump campaign and became campaign manager as Stephen Bannon became campaign chairman. Conway reported that she needs to assist her children in remote learning at the coronavirus pandemic in order to step away from her position. Within the West Wing, she had remained a trusted voice and spearheaded several initiatives, such as fighting opioid abuse.
Kellyanne can be remembered for her vigorous defence of the president in media appearances. Sometimes, in supporting her case, she was delivering dizzying rebuttals while once extolling the virtues of “alternative facts”. Though she resisted moving over to the campaign, she was also an informal adviser to the president’s reelection effort. Her leaving was first reported by the Washington Post and comes at an inappropriate time for Trump, who faces a deficit in the polls as the Republican National Convention begins on Monday.
