White House counselor Kellyanne Conway revealed how she felt about the possibility of her becoming Trump’s communications director.
White House counselor Kellyanne Conway on Thursday confirmed speculation that the reason she’s not the White House communications director is because she’s simply not interested.
“I’ve been offered that job many times and no, I work on policy here at the White House,” she said on ‘Fox & Friends.’
Conway also had kind words about Hope Hicks, who announced on Wednesday that she would be resigning from the communications director position in the next few weeks.
“[Hicks] was the fourth person to hold the position of communications director over 13 months,” notes the New York Daily News.
