WASHINGTON — One of President Trump’s longest-serving aides is leaving the White House at the end of the month.

Kellyanne Conway, a senior advisor to the president, is stepping away to focus on her family.

“I will be transitioning from the White House at the end of this month. George is also making changes,” Kellyanne Conway said in a statement. “We disagree about plenty but we are united on what matters most: the kids.”

Her husband, George T. Conway III, is also stepping away from his role at the Lincoln Project, an outside group of GOP party members who aim to defeat the President in November.

In a statement, Kellyanne Conway wrote that their four children are in their tweens and starting a new academic year and requires a level of “attention and vigilance that is as unusual as these times.”

“For all of its political differences and cultural cleavages, this is a beautiful country filled with amazing people. The promise of America belongs to us all,” Kellyanne Conway said. “In time, I will announce future plans. For now, and for my beloved children, it will be less drama, more mama.”
