Kellyanne Conway Has Announced Her Resignation From The Trump Administration
White House counsellor Kellyanne Conway has announced her resignation.
The former Trump campaign manager says her decision to leave the Administration just months before November's big election is so she can focus more on her family.
Her husband George, who is staunchly opposed to Donald Trump, announced he would also be leaving his position at The Lincoln Project, which is a group of anti-Trump Republicans.
Ms Conway released a statement, saying: "I will be transitioning from the White House at the end of this month. George is also making changes.
"We disagree about plenty but we are united on what matters most: the kids. Our four children are teens and 'tweens starting a new academic year, in middle school and high school, remotely from home for at least a few months.
"As millions of parents nationwide know, kids 'doing school from home' requires a level of attention and vigilance that is as unusual as these times."

She became the first female campaign manager to win an American presidential race when Donald Trump won his election in 2016.
Since then, Kellyanne has stuck to her guns and been one of Trump's biggest defenders.
She insists her decision to leave the White House was one that she made and wasn't instructed or pressured to do so.
In her statement, she praised all the people she's had the pleasure of working with for the past several years and omitted what she has planned for the future.
She said: "The incredible men, women and children we've met along the way have reaffirmed my later-in-life experience that public service can be meaningful and consequential.
"For all of its political differences and cultural cleavages, this is a beautiful country filled with amazing people. The promise of America belongs to us all."
