‘I Took That Personally’: Conway Reflects on Feud with Clinton Staffers
Kellyanne Conway gave a Friday interview on CBS This Morning, where she talked about yesterday’s massive fight with Hillary Clinton‘s campaign aides during a presidential forum.
Donald Trump‘s former campaign manager attended a discussion at Harvard University, where she and her colleagues squared off against Robby Mook, Jennifer Palmieri and several other Clinton aides. The talk ended up becoming a shoutfest where Palmieri said she preferred losing the election than winning the way Donald Trump did.
When asked about the fight, Conway said it was clear there were still a lot of raw feelings out there, and that it was “unfortunate” that Palmieri would accuse her campaign of giving a platform to white supremacists.
“I took that personally, and I know that’s not true,” Conway said. “President-elect Trump has denounced every single element of that awful movement… I think some people are stuck in a permanent campaign”
Conway went on to talk about how Trump’s Electoral College victory (though not the popular vote) proves that America has given him a mandate for his platform of economic growth. She pointed to Trump’s announcement yesterday at an Indianapolis Carrier factory as proof of his capacity for job creation.
