Former Trump star staffer and campaign manager in 2016 Kellyanne Conway wrote a memoir where she was careful not to criticize the former President.
Trump still took issue with it and attacked the former staffer particularly taking issue with her claims that she tried to convince him the 2020 election wasn’t stolen.
“Kellyanne Conway never told me that she thought we lost the election,” Trump wrote. “If she had I wouldn’t have dealt with her any longer – she would have been wrong – could go back to her crazy husband. Writing books can make people say some very strange things I wonder why? Got 12 million more votes than we did the first time, the most votes, by far, of any sitting President. The election was RIGGED. They used Covid to cheat and steal, and the evidence is massive and indisputable.”
Mediaite reports that the attack came in the middle of an interview by them with Conway.
“I was given a statement last night that he was going to put out — a beautiful statement about the book and our relationship and how hard we had worked together. So somebody worked overtime between last evening and this morning to have him put that statement out.”
I think that people have their own interests at hand, including the same people who say privately that Donald Trump lost. And I would love to see his 2020 campaign team out there. I would love to hear from Brad Parscale and Jared Kushner and Tony Fabrizio, John McLaughlin, a whole bunch of them, Bill Stepien. I’d like them to go on the record. I never see them anywhere talking about the 2020 election. So that’s very fascinating. Some of them even say they’re out of politics now. But I saw a beautiful statement that was going to come out some time between last night and this morning, that did not, about the book.
Despite Trump’s criticism Conway said she would still run a Trump 2024 campaign if Trump decides to run and she was asked.
Conway is still a Trump supporter and remains that way unlike many former Trump officials.
