Kellyanne Conway, who served as President-elect Donald Trump’s campaign manager and has been a senior adviser to his transition team, will serve as counselor to the president in the incoming administration.
In its Thursday morning announcement, Trump’s transition team said Conway will “continue her role as a close advisor to the president and will work with senior leadership to effectively message and execute the Administration’s legislative priorities and actions.”
“Kellyanne Conway has been a trusted advisor and strategist who played a crucial role in my victory. 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,” Trump said in a statement.
