Kellyanne Conway, adviser to United States President Donald Trump and one of his most ardent defenders for the past four years, announced her resignation on Sunday, claiming she wanted to spend more time with her family.
Conway played a key role in the campaign that brought Trump to the White House in 2016, and after the Magnate’s victory, he carried out advisory work that was consistent with numerous testimonies to the media that have made him one of the faces most famous of the current administration.
With elections coming up in just over two months, Conway has announced that he will be leaving his current position in late August. “It is my decision and my vote. In due course I will announce future plans. For now and for my dear children, I will be less of a drama and more of a mother,” he said in a statement.
The counselor has stated that she would like to spend more time with her four children if they have to continue their education from home due to the restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. “As millions of parents know, children who go to school from home require a level of attention and vigilance that is unusual in these times,” he said.
