Donald Trump announced Thursday morning that his former campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, will serve as counselor to the president in the incoming administration.
In a statement released by Trump’s transition team, they 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 the statement.
Conway was the first female campaign manager of either party to ever win a presidential election, and she said she is “humbled” to have been offered the position:
“I want to thank the President-elect for this amazing opportunity,” Conway said in the statement. “A Trump presidency will bring real change to Washington and to Americans across this 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.”
