"For now, and for my beloved children, it will be less drama, more mama," Kellyanne Conway on her official parting statement as the now, former senior adviser of President Donald Trump announced her departure to the White House at the end of the month to focus more on her family.
I'm Leaving the White House. Gratefully & Humbly.— Kellyanne Conway (@KellyannePolls) August 24, 2020
Here is my statement:https://t.co/MpYxVfrY2N
God Bless You All.
Conway, Trump’s 2016 campaign manager, and senior counselor broke the news, to the President, at his Oval office amid the Republican National Convention and FDA’s emergency approval of the plasma treatment for coronavirus patients, to spend more time with her family. In her statement, she noted that she and her husband, George Conway, an outspoken critic of the President and co-founder of an anti-Trump organization the Lincoln Project, have stepped back from their roles in the public to pay close attention to their kids, especially in these challenging times.
So I’m withdrawing from @ProjectLincoln to devote more time to family matters. And I’ll be taking a Twitter hiatus.— George Conway (@gtconway3d) August 24, 2020
Needless to say, I continue to support the Lincoln Project and its mission. Passionately.
The notable Republican strategist and veteran pollster Kellyanne Conway is still on the list to speak at the GOP convention on Wednesday before she decided to vacate her post. Even though she clarified that this was completely her choice, news sites reported that her announcement to leave public office came hours after her fifteen-year-old daughter took on social media how her mother’s job had ruined her life, which eventually became viral.
my mother’s job ruined my life to begin with. heartbreaking that she continues to go down that path after years of watching her children suffer. selfish. it’s all about money and fame, ladies and gentlemen.— CLAUDIA CONWAY (@claudiamconwayy) August 23, 2020
As one of Trump's longest-serving aides, Mrs. Conway's career at the White House faced an untimely end after her resignation. The President acknowledged her as one of the crucial components of his 2016 victory. She was the first American woman in the election history to head a successful presidential campaign, which BBC reported earning her a monicker as Trump whisperer. She gained attention for being Trump’s most fervent and controversial defender, after using the phrase “alternative facts” to back up White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer claims that the Trump’s inauguration had the largest attendance than that of former Barack Obama’s swearing-in ceremony, which critics were prompt to question. In 2017, when Nordstrom dropped Ivanka Trumps’ clothing line due to lack of sales, she was quick to endorse it and was quoted saying, "go buy" Ivanka Trump's clothes, a remark that Democrats and Republicans criticized as it manifests a violation on ethics rules set on public officials. Ethics advisory board sent a letter to the White House to investigate this violation and levy a possible disciplinary action on her.
Just recently, the BBC reported that she negatively commented on Joe Biden’s acceptance speech when the presidential candidate called out the administration's lack of leadership on the pandemic. Mrs. Conway accused Biden of being arrogant and ignorant, stating that he doesn't have any idea of what the Trump administration has done in response to the pandemic.
