The White House adviser, who managed Trump’s successful 2016 campaign, has announced her resignation.
Conway, who announced her resignation on Monday August 24, 2020, was the first woman to successfully manage a US presidential campaign to victory.
While speaking about her plan, Conway stated that she will be leaving the administration of US President Donald Trump at the end of August.
She said she needed to focus on her family.
“I will be transitioning from the White House at the end of this month”, she said in a statement.
Her departure, about two months before Trump seeks re-election, comes at a crucial time for the president, and leaves him without one of the more passionate spokespersons about his political and policy choices.
Conway was his third campaign manager in 2016 and has been one of Trump’s most loyal and outspoken defenders in public and on news networks.
She was also the first woman to successfully manage a presidential campaign to victory and, more recently, was instrumental in getting Trump to restart regular, but shorter, White House briefings about the coronavirus outbreak.
In a separate statement on social media, Kellyanne Conway’s husband George said he was stepping back from his role in the Lincoln Project, a project with a mission to “defeat Trump and Trumpism at the ballot box”.
George Conway, a conservative lawyer who had co-founded the Lincoln Project, has been a vocal critic of the US president.
