Daughter of George, Kellyanne Conway Speaks Out After Parents Announced Their Divorce

The daughter of George and Kellyanne Conway has finally broken her silence following the news that her parents are divorcing after two decades of marriage.

Claudia Conway, 18, who made headlines during the final months of Donald Trump’s term for publicly feuding with her mom and dad, unleashed on Twitter last week after remaining silent for months. She criticized how the media has treated her mother, who served as Trump’s top political counselor, as well as the overall reporting regarding the divorce.

“For those asking how i am, i’m slaying per usual,” she tweeted.


“Also why does the media love to tear women down … all these journalists hatefully commenting on another woman’s marriage are either divorced, will be single forever, or haven’t met their husband’s secretary yet,” she added.

Claudia also responded to a Twitter user who asked her how she felt about the fact that her folks were going their separate ways.

“I think everyone banks on having that picture-perfect ‘nuclear family’ but families come in all different structures so to put it simply, i love both of my parents and am excited for the new chapters of their lives that they are stepping into,” she said.

The couple released a statement earlier this month after news of their pending divorce was reported.

“We married more than two decades ago, cherish the many happy years (and four corgis) we’ve shared, and above all else, our four incredible children, who remain the heartbeat of our family and our top priority,” the couple said.

“We remain united as parents to provide love, joy, comfort and protection to our beautiful children,” it added.


There had been a growing conflict between Kellyanne and George, the latter of whom has long been a vocal critic of Trump and tormented him throughout his presidency, helping to found the anti-Trump Lincoln Project that is now defunct and was itself a center of controversy.

Kellyanne has previously pointed to her husband’s public statements opposing Trump, which occurred while she was working for the president, as a significant factor in the deterioration of their marriage.

“Beltway insiders tell us that they’ve both lawyered up and that the two sides are hashing out the details of the split,” according to Page Six.

In 2016, Kellyanne Conway initially acted as an advisor to candidate Trump during the elections before taking on the role of campaign manager.


In 2022, Vanity Fair noted, “One of the greatest mysteries of the 21st century is the marriage of Kellyanne Conway and her husband, George — specifically, if they hate each other as much as their public commentary would suggest, or if the whole thing is some kind of three-dimensional chess designed to further their own interests.”

The couple got married in 2001 and have four children together. However, their conflicting political views during the Trump presidency strained their relationship.

According to Kellyanne’s 2022 memoir, “Here’s the Deal,” she viewed George’s constant public criticism of the former president as a form of marital betrayal, dubbing it “cheating by tweeting.” She also revealed that Ivanka Trump had recommended they seek couples therapy.


In May of that year, ahead of the book’s release, she told the New York Post that the two of them had separated, but their kids were holding up:

The kids are great. Their father and I just go back and forth [between houses] … so somebody’s always there with them. We’re doing that so that they can be in the schools where they want to be. [The oldest children] wanted to finish their academic careers where they started. And I can’t be that mom who says to my kids, “Be your own person, chart your own path,” and then tell them where they need to live, and what they need to do. I tell their father, “It’s not like we’re driving kids to chemotherapy, we’re not to complain. We can do this.”

She also took aim at former Fox News anchor Chris Wallace in her book. In a published excerpt, Conway describes one interview with Wallace in which she says he attempted to bully her into speaking about her husband, George.
