Kellyanne Conway, Trump adviser, to leave White House at end of month

Senior adviser Kellyanne Conway will reportedly leave the White House before the end of August.

Mrs. Conway, according to a statement first reported in the Washington Post, is leaving to focus on family issues and her “Never Trump” husband will also be stepping back from daily politicking.

“We disagree about plenty,” Mrs. Conway said in the statement, “but we are united on what matters most: the kids. Our four children are teens and ‘tweens starting a new academic year in the middle school and high school that will be conducted remotely from home for a 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.”

According to the Post, she told President Trump of her decision Sunday night at the White House.

Mrs. Conway, Mr. Trump’s third 2016 campaign manager and the first woman to head a victorious presidential campaign, called her time “heady” and “humbling” and said she was leaving on her own terms.

“This is completely my choice and my voice. In time, I will announce future plans. For now, and for my beloved children, it will less drama, more mama,” she wrote.
