“I will be leaving the White House at the end of the month. George is also making changes,” Kellyanne Conway said in a statement.
“We don’t agree on abundance, but we are united on what matters most: children. Our four children are teenagers and tweens who are starting a new school year, in middle and high school, away from home for at least a few months. As millions of parents across the country know that “homeschooling” children demand a level of attention and vigilance as unusual as these days. “
Kellyanne Conway is due to speak at this week’s Republican National Convention, but it’s unclear if she always will.
One of the Conways high school girls has drawn social media attention to her family and their political views in recent months.
But political tensions with her husband had spread to the public in recent years.
A Washington lawyer who was considered for several Justice Department positions early in Trump’s tenure, George Conway quickly became a leading critic of the president.
Each of the directors of Project Lincoln had aligned themselves with the “NeverTrump” movement in the 2016 election and have since come under harsh criticism of Trump and the Republican Party.
Earlier Sunday, George Conway tweeted “I * may * take a Twitter break soon” before listing some of his critical articles on the president.
Yet Kellyanne Conway asserted in her statement Sunday that “the incredible men, women and children we have met along the way reaffirmed my later experience that public service can be meaningful and consistent.”
“Despite all of its political differences and cultural divides, it is a beautiful country filled with amazing people. America’s promise belongs to all of us,” said Kellyanne Conway.
She also stressed that the decision “is entirely my choice and my voice”.
“Over time, I will announce future projects. For now, and for my beloved children, it will be less drama, more mom, ”she said.
