Kellyanne Conway has stepped down from her role as advisor to President Donald Trump after her daughter, Claudia Conway, claimed that she was seeking emancipation from her mother because of "years of Childhood Trauma and Abuse."
"I'm officially pushing for emancipation. buckle up because this is probably going to be public one way or another, unfortunately. welcome to my life," Claudia tweeted over the weekend. The statement came after she expressed disappointment that her mother was set to speak at the Republican National Convention.
"I’m not getting emancipated because of my mom’s job," Claudia went on to add. "It is because of years of childhood trauma and abuse."
She went on to add: "My mother’s job ruined my life to begin with. Heartbreaking that she continues to go down that path after years of watching her children suffer. Selfish. It’s all about money and fame, ladies and gentlemen."
She went on to ask people to stop "stanning" her father, George Conway, who was a co-founder of the anti-Trump Lincoln project. "As for my dad, politically, we agree on absolutely nothing," Claudia wrote. "We just both happen to have common sense when it comes to our current president. Stop 'stanning' him."
Claudia concluded by stating that she was going on a "mental health break."
Following the series of tweets, Kellyanne Conway said that she is resigning from her post as an advisor to President Trump.
"The past four years have allowed me blessings beyond compare," she said. "[George and I] disagree about plenty but we are united on what matters most: the kids. Our four children are teens and tweens starting a new academic year, in middle school and high school, remotely from home for at least a few months. As millions of parents nationwide know, kids 'doing school from home' requires a level of attention and vigilance that is as unusual as these times."
George Conway also announced that he would be steeping down from his role in the Lincoln Project.
