Kellyanne Elizabeth Conway (née Fitzpatrick; born January 20, 1967) is the current Counselor to U.S. president Donald Trump. She has been a Republican Party campaign manager, strategist, and pollster, and was formerly president and CEO of The Polling Company Inc./Woman Trend.
In 2016, Conway endorsed Ted Cruz in the Republican presidential primaries and chaired a pro-Cruz political action committee, Keep the Promise I, which ran advertisements critical of then Republican candidate Donald Trump.
That July, Cruz withdrew from the race, and Trump appointed her as a senior advisor and later campaign manager to his campaign. She was the first woman to run a successful presidential campaign. On December 22, 2016, Trump announced that Conway would join his administration as Counselor to the President, serving alongside Steve Bannon, assistant to the President and White House chief strategist.
Since Trump's inauguration, Conway has been embroiled in a series of controversies, including using the phrase "alternative facts", making reference to a "Bowling Green massacre" which never occurred, claiming Michael Flynn had the full confidence of the president hours before he was dismissed, and publicly endorsing commercial products associated with the president's daughter Ivanka Trump. As a result, a number of media outlets have called her credibility into question, with some refusing her requests for one-on-one interviews. Wikipedia
