President-elect Donald Trump’s campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, blasted Mitt Romney as a potential State pick; Reince Priebus denied any warfare.
Kellyanne Conway has hedged on taking a job in the White House, despite steering President-elect Donald Trump to victory.
One part of the new administration Conway won’t hedge on? She doesn’t want Mitt Romney there.
On CNN’s “State of the Union,” Conway blasted Romney for his comments on Trump during the campaign. At the same time, she denied her criticism came from “personal concerns.”
When CNN’s Dana Bash asked if the concerns were “personal” on Conway’s part, Conway denied her personal concerns mattered.
Instead, she talked about the “grassroots,” including as an example someone who said “my parents died penniless, but I gave $216 to Donald Trump’s campaign and I would feel betrayed [if Trump picked Romney].”
Also on Sunday, the next White House chief of staff, Reince Priebus, denied there was any warfare on Team Trump over Romney at State:
