President Donald Trump’s top Adviser, Kellyanne Conway has announced her retirement from the administration.
She premised her resignation on the need to focus on her children so as to give them ‘less drama and more mama’.
Kellyanne Conway’s daughter Claudia had during the weekend tweeted that her mother’s job ‘runined [her] life’
my mother’s job ruined my life to begin with. heartbreaking that she continues to go down that path after years of watching her children suffer. selfish. it’s all about money and fame, ladies and gentlemen.

In a statement, Mrs Conway, 53, said she was stepping down at the end of August to focus on her children, giving them “less drama, more mama”.
Her husband, George, an outspoken critic of the president, will also be stepping back from political activism.
She added that her decision was “completely my choice”, and that she would announce future plans “in time”.
Conway’s husband, George, is a prominent conservative lawyer and vocal critic of his wife’s boss.
In a tweet, George Conway said he will be leaving the Lincoln Project, a group of anti-Trump Republicans seeing to oust the president to “devote more time to family matters’’.
The president has voiced his dislike of George Conway calling him “a stone cold loser and husband from hell’’ in a tweet last year.
In 2016, Conway led the Trump campaign to victory, becoming the first female campaign manager to do so and she immediately entered the White House as one of Trump’s fiercest defenders.
She earned scorn in the early days of the Trump administration when she uttered the now-iconic phrase “alternative facts” to defend the White House, making false claims over the Trump inauguration crowd size.
The surprise announcement comes a day before the start of the Republican National Convention.
