Kellyanne Conway Named Counselor To The President


Kellyanne Conway, a trusted adviser and strategist to Donald Trump who played a crucial role in his election victory, was named by the President-elect on Thursday to serve as Counselor to the President.

In the position, Conway will continue her role as a close adviser to the President and will work with senior leadership to effectively message and execute the Administration's legislative priorities and actions, the Presidential transition team said.

The 49-year-old mother of four joined the Trump Campaign as his third campaign manager in August and played a pivotal role in his successful run for the presidency. She is currently serving as a senior member of the President-elect's transition team.

Conway is the first female campaign manager of either major party to win a presidential general election.

"She is a tireless and tenacious advocate of my agenda and has amazing insights on how to effectively communicate our message. I am pleased that she will be part of my senior team in the West Wing," said Trump.

Thanking the President-elect for giving her this opportunity, Conway said a Trump presidency will bring real change to Washington and to Americans across the great nation.

"I am humbled and honored to play a role in helping transform the movement he has led into a real agenda of action and results," said Conway.

Conway is the founder and owner of the polling and research firm The Polling Company, Inc./WomanTrend.
