White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, one of President Trump’s closest advisers, announced Sunday, on the eve of the Republican National Convention, that she will be leaving the administration at the end of the month. She informed the president of her decision on Sunday evening in the Oval Office, according to a senior administration official.

In a statement on Sunday, Conway cited as the reason for her departure the challenges of distance learning this fall for her four children, “teens and ‘tweens starting a new academic year, in middle school and high school, remotely from home for at least a few months.”

Her husband George Conway, who is a vocal critic of Mr. Trump, “is also making changes,” Conway said. “We disagree about plenty but we are united on what matters most: the kids.”

George Conway on Sunday evening announced on Twitter, “So I’m withdrawing from @ProjectLincoln to devote more time to family matters. And I’ll be taking a Twitter hiatus.” He added, “Needless to say, I continue to support the Lincoln Project and its mission. Passionately.” The Lincoln Project, which was co-founded by George Conway, has been spending millions on television ads and digital campaigns to defeat Mr. Trump.

“This is completely my choice and my voice……..For now, and for my beloved children, it will be less drama, more mama.”

Before she was named counselor to the president, Conway served as the president’s campaign manager, his third in 2016, after Corey Lewandowski and Paul Manafort. Conway is the first woman to manage a winning presidential campaign. On Wednesday night, she’s slated to address the Republican convention.
