President-elect Donald Trump’s future counselor said she is “amused” by the chilled response she has received so far as she begins to search for a private school for her four children in Washington.
Kellyanne Conway is concerned her work for Trump may impact her school search upon relocating to the nation’s dark-blue capital, the New York Post reported Wednesday.
“I would not characterize myself as ‘worried’ so much as amused by the silence and sighs on the other end of the phone when friends and allies have made preliminary inquiries on my behalf,” she told the Post while visiting schools in the District.
Conway also said she is surprised by “the flood” of people who have offered to help her family during its transition to D.C.
When asked if her family is also house hunting in D.C., Conway replied, “First things first.”
A source told the Post that Conway is “asking everyone with connections to D.C. schools for help.”
Trump announced Conway’s new role as his counselor last week, adding she would work with senior leadership to help advance his administration’s goals.
“Kellyanne Conway has been a trusted advisor and strategist who played a crucial role in my victory,” he said in a Dec. 22 statement. “She is a tireless and tenacious advocate of my agenda and has amazing insights on how to effectively communicate our message.”
