Con­way con­tra­dicts Trump on hus­band

The Buffalo News - - WASHINGTON NEWS -

WASH­ING­TON – White House coun­selor Kellyanne Con­way said Sun­day that her hus­band with­drew his name from con­sid­er­a­tion for a job in the Trump ad­min­is­tra­tion, an ac­count that con­tra­dicts Pres­i­dent Trump’s as­ser­tion that he “didn’t give him the job he so des­per­ately wanted.”

In an in­ter­view on “Fox News Sun­day,” Con­way was asked about the es­ca­lat­ing feud be­tween the pres­i­dent and her hus­band, con­ser­va­tive lawyer Ge­orge Con­way.

She said that when her hus­band “with­drew his name, he said he would still sup­port the pres­i­dent and his agenda and, quote, his won­der­ful wife’s work. So, if that’s changed, I haven’t changed.”

Kellyanne Con­way de­clined to answer when asked to­ward the in­ter­view’s end whether the gulf be­tween her own and her hus­band’s po­lit­i­cal views had hurt their mar­riage.

This month, Trump said in a tweet that he had turned down Ge­orge Con­way for a po­si­tion in his ad­min­is­tra­tion. The tweet came af­ter Ge­orge Con­way’s sug­ges­tions that Trump’s men­tal health is de­te­ri­o­rat­ing.
