Kellyanne Conway has been one of the most public faces of President Donald Trump’s team since the days of his 2016 campaign, but on Sunday, August 24, she announced in a late-night tweet that she is leaving her White House role at the end of the month. 

Conway released a statement via Twitter, writing, “I’m Leaving the White House. Gratefully & Humbly.”

“I will be transitioning from the White House at the end of this month. George [Conway, her husband] is also making changes,” she said in the statement. “We disagree about plenty but we are united on what matters most: the kids. 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. 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.” 

“This is completely my voice and my choice,” she continued. “In time, I will announce future plans. For now, and for my beloved children, it will be less drama, more mama.” Conway also praised the president and Vice President Mike Pence, and those she worked with and said “the promise of America belongs to it all.”

Around the same time as her announcement, Conway’s husband, George Conway, announced he was stepping back from The Lincoln Project, a political action committee comprised of current and former Republicans committed to stopping the re-election of Trump. “So I’m withdrawing from @ProjectLincoln to devote more time to family matters,” he tweeted. “And I’ll be taking a Twitter hiatus. Needless to say, I continue to support the Lincoln Project and its mission. Passionately.”

Kellyanne Conway’s time as Trump’s campaign manager and then as counselor to the president has been marked my numerous controversies. She is, of course, the person who brought the term “alternative facts” into the vernacular when she used it to defend then-press secretary Sean Spicer’s claims about the attendance numbers at Trump’s inauguration. When Trump said there were “very fine people” on both sides of the violent white nationalist attacks in Charlottesville in 2017, Conway later called his remarks “darn near perfection.” She also stood by the administration’s much-debated border and immigration policies. Meanwhile, George Conway wrote a 2019 story for The Atlantic calling Trump “Unfit for Office” in the title. 

The Conways’ differing positions on President Trump and his policies have been playing out in public for quite some time, but more recently their teenage daughter, Claudia Conway, has become a focus on social media thanks to numerous viral TikTok posts calling out her parents and expressing her more progressive views. 

On Twitter (via a non-verified account), she announced she was taking a break as well. “This is becoming way too much so i am taking a mental health break from social media. see y’all soon,” she wrote. “Thank you for the love and support. no hate to my parents please.”

Social media reactions ranged from pleased to see Kellyanne Conway leaving her role and concern for her family to predictions about what she will do next. 

Kellyanne Conway is still expected to speak later this week at the Republican National Convention.
