WASHINGTON — Kellyanne Conway, senior counselor to President Donald Trump, announced Sunday that she plans to step down from her White House role, according to the Washington Post.
In a statement shared on social media late Sunday, Conway, who was Trump's campaign manager when he won the 2016 election, said she "will be transitioning from the White House at the end of this month."
Her husband, Trump critic George Conway, also tweeted that he is withdrawing from the Lincoln Project "to devote more time to family matters."
Kellyanne Conway acknowledged that she and her husband "disagree about plenty" but agree that their children are their top priority.
"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," she wrote. "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."
She added that the decision was "completely my choice and my voice" and said she would announce future plans at a later date.
"For now, and for my beloved children, it will be less drama, more mama," she wrote.
