Top Trump Advisor Kellyanne Conway To Set The Record Straight In New Memoir
After many books from Trump detractors purporting to tell the “real story” about the Trump presidency, the other side may finally get a hearing with former top Trump advisor Kellyanne Conway’s upcoming memoir.
Her new book, ‘Here’s The Deal’ will be out on May 24.
Conway’s publisher says the book, “takes the reader inside Kellyanne’s own house, on her own terms.”
For those that followed Trump closely, they know that Conway wasn’t just battling the establishment and the swamp from inside the White House, but also in her own house.

The Road To The White House
Conway was a longtime Republican pollster who had originally backed Sen. Ted Cruz in 2016. She eventually made the switch to the Trump campaign and rose through the ranks to become Donald Trump’s campaign manager, and became the first woman to successfully manage a presidential campaign all the way to the White House.
But while battling a hostile press and the Washington machine is pretty standard fare as far as the life of a politico goes, Conway also dealt with her husband, George Conway, being one of the most prominent anti-Trump critics – even launching his own group to try to take down his wife’s boss.

Washington Taking Its Toll On Family
George Conway was instrumental in starting The Lincoln Project, a group of neoconservatives and “Never Trumpers” whose main activity was fighting back against Trump’s massive base.
George Conway even went so far as to write a scathing Op-ed in the Washington Post in May of 2020 as COVID-19 was spreading throughout the nation and Trump’s response to it.
The final straw seemed to come when then 15-year old Claudia Conway began taking to social media to dish details of her family life. It was then that Kellyanne decided to step down from her position at the White House, and George took a leave of absence from The Lincoln Project. Both said it was to focus more on their family.

In Her Own Words
Kellyanne Conway on Wednesday made a statement to the Associated Press about her upcoming memoir: “I’d made a career out of calling things as I saw them, with no notes in front of me and no net beneath me. I brought that same approach to this book, which should engage, engross and entertain plenty of people.”
The Associated Press has also reported that Simon & Schuster employees are less than happy about the book deal for Conway and another with former Vice President Mike Pence.
Conway has a memoir out May 24: "Here's the Deal" is billed by her publisher as a look beyond the headlines of the Trump administration and her family life, including her husband and prominent Trump detractor, George Conway.https://t.co/2xEceXkVyX
