Ending weeks of speculation on her role in the Trump Administration, Kellyanne Conway, who managed Donald Trump’s winning campaign for President, will stay on as a top aide to the real estate mogul, serving as his Counselor in the White House.
“Kellyanne Conway has been a trusted advisor and strategist who played a crucial role in my victory,” Mr. Trump said in a written statement issued on Thursday morning.
It is great that Kellyanne Conway will be a senior counselor to President Trump. She is smart, positive, energetic and courageous.
“She is a tireless and tenacious advocate of my agenda and has amazing insights on how to effectively communicate our message,” the President-Elect added, saying that she would work “to effectively message and execute the Administration’s legislative priorities and actions.”
“I am pleased that she will be part of my senior team in the West Wing.”
Well known in Washington before signing on with Trump for her work as a pollster, Conway stood by him through thick and thin.
“Hashtag: he’s your President. How about that?” Conway said in a post-election scrap with top aides of the Clinton campaign a few weeks ago.
