(ConservativePeak.com)- One of President Donald Trump’s longest and most loyal advisors is set to leave her post at the White House.
Kellyanne Conway, who serves as a senior advisor to the president, will leave her post at the end of August to spend more time with her children. Conway notified Trump of her decision in the Oval Office on Sunday, and said the president supported her decision.
In a statement, Conway, a mother of four, said:
“This is completely my choice and my voice. In time, I will announce future plans. For now, and for my beloved children, it will be less drama, more mama.
“The past four years have allowed me blessings beyond compare as a part of history on Election Night 2016 and as Senior Counselor to the President. It’s been heady. It’s been humbling.”
Conway served as the Trump campaign manager in 2016, and is one of the longest-serving senior advisors to the president.
Conway’s husband, George, is also leaving his post at The Lincoln Project to “devote more time to family matters.” George is, ironically, a part of a Republican group that opposes the president. He’s also been a vocal critic of Trump over the years.
On Twitter, George said:
“So I’m withdrawing from @ProjectLincoln to devote more time to family matters. And I’ll be taking a Twitter hiatus. Needless to say, I continue to support the Lincoln Project and its mission. Passionately.”
Kellyanne Conway specifically mentioned the contrasting views she has with her husband in her statement, saying:
“We disagree about plenty, but we are united on what matters most: the kids. 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.”
The Conway family has also been dealing with some controversies recently. Their 15-year-old daughter Claudia is a frequent and outspoken critic of the Trump administration on TikTok and Twitter. She has often allowed her frustration regarding her mother’s support of the president spill over into social media.
This weekend, she tweeted:
“I’m officially pushing for emancipation. Buckle up because this is probably going to be public one way or another, unfortunately. Welcome to my life.”
Kellyanne Conway still plans to speak at the Republican National Convention on Tuesday, as was originally scheduled, according to a Trump administration official.
Conway was the first female campaign manager to win a presidential race.
“The incredible men, women and children we’ve met along the way have reaffirmed my later-in-life experience that public service can be meaningful and consequential,” Conway said about her time with the Trump campaign and administration. “For all its political differences and cultural cleavages, this is a beautiful country filled with amazing people. The promise of America belongs to us all.”
