NEW YORK — President-elect Donald Trump tapped former campaign manager Kellyanne Conway as “counselor to the president,” the presidential transition announced Thursday morning.

The transition said Conway will work with White House senior leadership on messaging and to help execute the administration’s legislative priorities.

“In her position, Conway will continue her role as a close adviser to the President and will work with senior leadership to effectively message and execute the Administration’s legislative priorities and actions,” the Trump transition said in a statement.

President-elect Trump praised Conway in the announcement, calling her “a trusted adviser and strategist who played a crucial role in my victory,” adding she has “amazing insights on how to effectively communicate our message.”

Conway said in the statement that she was “humbled and honored to play a role in helping transform the movement he has led into a real agenda of actions and results.”

A veteran pollster, Conway was a fixture in Mr. Trump’s inner circle after joining the campaign in early July.

She took over as campaign manager after Paul Manafort’s departure and a period of tumult in August, following the conventions. She played a critical role in organizing the campaign’s operations and was a near-constant presence on television and social media as she helped craft the Trump campaign’s message.

    These SNL skits are getting funnier and funnier. Kellyanne, the prevaricating ventriloquist will continue to control or write what the dummy does or meant to say not the moronic childish crap he did say.

      Ha, ha right you are sir. I agree. Presidents are nothing more than a figure head telling the public talking points that rate highest in focus groups. Very keen eye to recognize Obama as a puppet of George Soros and Iranian born Valerie Jarett. Only this time the puppet master will be American with the USA’ s interests in mind. Good observation my friend and a Trump Merry Christmas and very happy Trump 8 New Years.
