June 2, 2017: Conway turns down administration role

After speculation began in March 2017 that Conway would be picked for a position in the Trump administration, Conway eventually declined any administration role, saying:

„I am profoundly grateful to the President and to the attorney general for selecting me to serve in the Department of Justice. I have reluctantly concluded, however, that, for me and my family, this is not the right time for me to leave the private sector and take on a new role in the federal government.“

Conway went on to clarify: „Kellyanne and I continue to support the President and his administration, and I look forward to doing so in whatever way I can from outside the government.“

The Washington Post reported that Conway considered the role, but was scared off by Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey and the aftermath that ensued.

In a later tweet, Conway clarified that he still supported the president.
