Conway Reveals What She Said To Her Daughters About Supporting Trump Over Clinton

Kellyanne Conway has risen from relative obscurity to become one of the most powerful women in politics. While she was well known in political circles prior to last year’s election, she became a national name after joining then-candidate Donald Trump’s campaign. She’s had some missteps along the way, but it’s still incredibly noteworthy that she was one of the biggest driving forces behind Trump’s upset victory. Add in the fact that she’s now one of the president’s top advisers, and we can certainly consider her to be a bit of a trailblazer.

As the Daily Mail shares, she’s been profiled by Time Magazine for a feature about women that are changing the world, and it’s chock full of fascinating insight. For example, she explains how she told her daughters that she wasn’t going to be voting for the first major female presidential candidate.

“In explaining how I feel about one thing that Donald Trump said or did to my daughters, I would be remiss in not revealing the full conversation, which is also why mommy, who's a woman, did not support the first female presidential candidate of a major party. I would tell them that I respect very much that Secretary Clinton was running for president, and it showed that in this country, anybody can do anything if they set their mind to it,” Conway explains. “At the same time, I tried to explain to them that you could be excited for someone with whom you disagree and share in that moment in history as a proud American.”

That’s a great point, and it brings something to light that often gets overlooked in today’s political climate: it’s ok to disagree. In fact, some of the best solutions are born out of those very disagreements. Of course, that comes with the caveat that both sides must be willing to work together, but there is some hope if more folks adopt that mindset. As for her own standing, it doesn’t sound like she gets herself caught up in all of the hype.

“My comfort level came in learning how to think like a man and to behave like a lady, and I hearken back to Margaret Thatcher where she said, 'Being powerful is like being a lady. If you have to say you are, you probably are not,'" she said.

Conway has touched on the Clinton topic plenty of times in the past, including in a previous interview with Glamour magazine.

“I relish the idea of a female president in my lifetime. True feminism means you're strong and independent enough to stand on your own,” she said. “I’m like many American women in that we say Hillary Clinton shares our agenda but not necessarily our life experience, our vision, or our values.”

Politics aside, Conway’s rise to the top of DC power circles is nothing short of impressive. In a perfect world, others will latch onto the advice she laid out for her daughters: “anybody can do anything if they set their mind to it.”
