Kellyanne Conway hails 'family, faith and freedom' amid personal turmoil of daughter's 'estrangement' and losing father

August 27, 2020

KELLYANNE Conway has hailed "family, faith and freedom" as she deals with her daughter Claudia's "estrangement" and the death of her father.

Speaking at the Republican National Convention on Wednesday night, President Donald Trump's former adviser stressed the importance of "what matters most."

The 53-year-old said: "I was raised in a household of all women. They were self reliant and resilient. Their lives were not easy, they never complained, and money was tight.

"But we had an abundance of what mattered most – family, faith and freedom.

"I learned that in America, limited means does not make for limited dreams.

"The promise of America belongs to us all."

Conway – who has been a close adviser to the President since he was sworn into office in 2016 – explained how "for many of us, women empowerment is not a slogan."

She explained: "It comes not from strangers in social media or sanitized language in a corporate handbook.

"It comes from the everyday heroes who nurture us, who shape us, and who believe in us."

Conway was raised by her mother, her grandmother, Antoinette; and two aunts, she said in a cover story with New York Magazine.

She is first woman campaign manager of either major political party to win a presidential general election.

"This is a land of inventors and innovators, of entrepreneurs and educators, of pioneers and parents, each contributing to the success and future of a great nation and her people," Conway said in her RNC speech.

"These everyday heroes have a champion in President Trump."

The mom-of-four commended President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence for lifting Americans and providing them with "dignity opportunity and results."

She said President Trump "picks the toughest fights and tackles the most complex problems."

President Trump's adviser's speech comes just days after she quit her role over the weekend after her 15-year-old daughter Claudia claimed her mom’s job had “ruined” her life.

Conway tweeted on Sunday night: "I'm Leaving the White House. Gratefully & Humbly."

She explained how her four children are "teens and tweens" who are about to start a new school year "remotely from home for at least a few months."

The adviser's husband, George Conway, also announced that he would be stepping down from his role with anti-Trump political action committee (PAC) The Lincoln Project to devote himself to family matters.

Claudia, who has also been outspoken on Twitter and TikTok about her family drama, responded to the news her mom had stepped down by claiming her parents are "putting on a show."

"This is completely my choice and my voice. In time, I will announce future plans," the longtime Republican pollster and political consultant said in her official statement.

"For now, and for my beloved children, it will be less drama, more mama."

Along with the added stress of her daughter's recent social media posts, Conway has been mourning the death of her father.

Conway's dad John Fitzpatrick passed away at age 79 earlier this year, The Sun revealed.

His death certificate shows he was born in November 1940 in Pennsylvania, and died while receiving inpatient care at the Physicians Regional Medical Center in Naples, Florida on February 4.
