Conway explained in the statement that her children needed “less drama, more Mama,” and that she would be taking some time to make sure that they got the attention they needed. She also noted that her husband George, often a fierce critic of President Donald Trump, was on the same page as far as this particular decision was concerned.
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.
George Conway also announced his withdrawal from anti-Trump group The Lincoln Project.
“So I’m withdrawing from @ProjectLincoln to devote more time to family matters. And I’ll be taking a Twitter hiatus,” Conway tweeted. “Needless to say, I continue to support the Lincoln Project and its mission. Passionately.”

Conway was one of the president’s longest-serving aides and was his campaign manager at the end of his 2016 presidential run — she was the first female campaign manager to win a presidential election.
