Counselors to the President is basically a blanket designation for a “get stuff done” aide. There’s always a tremendous amount of Politicking done behind the scenes, on almost every issue you can think of. Every president needs as many trustworthy, dedicated, and capable people as they can find. Conway has done great with the transition and is a perfect person for this kind of position.
NewsMax.com – President-elect Donald Trump on Thursday named Kellyanne Conway to the post of Counselor to the President.
Conway had been serving as a senior transition adviser after successfully navigating Trump’s presidential run as campaign manager.
“Kellyanne Conway has been a trusted adviser and strategist who played a crucial role in my victory. She is a tireless and tenacious advocate of my agenda and has amazing insights on how to effectively communicate our message. I am pleased that she will be part of my senior team in the West Wing,” Trump said in a statement.
Conway’s name had been bandied about as Trump’s possible press secretary, a post she more than once said was offered but turned down by her.
“I want to thank the president-elect for this amazing opportunity. A Trump presidency will bring real change to Washington and to Americans across this great nation. I am humbled and honored to play a role in helping transform the movement he has led into a real agenda of action and results,’ said Conway.
