Conway contradicts Trump on husband
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.
