Kellyanne Conway is stepping down from her position as counselor to President Donald Trump. On Sunday, Conway tweeted that she plans to leave in order to focus on her family.
Conway, 53, begins her statement by expressing her gratitude. “I am deeply grateful to the President for this honor, and to the First Lady, the Vice President and Mrs. Pence, my colleagues in the White House and the Administration, and the countless people who supported me and my work,” she writes.
The mother of four explains that her husband, George Conway, also plans to make changes. George has been a fierce critic of President Trump. Kellyanne noted their differences in her statement but acknowledges they agree on one major aspect of their lives.
KellyAnne Conway Says Her Kids Need “Less Drama, More Mama”
“We disagree about plenty but we are united on what matters most: the kids,” she said in the statement. “Our four children are teens and ‘tweens starting a new academic year, in middle school and high school, remotely from home for at least a few months. As millions of parents nationwide know, kids ‘doing school from home’ requires a level of attention and vigilance that is as unusual as these times.”
In addition to her husband, Conway’s 15-year-old daughter, Claudia Conway, regularly criticizes Trump on social media.
She continued by explaining that the decision to leave the White House was “completely” her choice. Conway says her family can expect “less drama, more mama.”
Conway also noted that she holds an optimistic outlook on the future of the country. “For all of its political differences and cultural cleavages, this is a beautiful country filled with amazing people,” she said. “The promise of America belongs to us all.
In 2016, Conway served as President Trump’s campaign manager. Many point to her as one of the instrumental people responsible for helping Donald Trump win the presidency.
