Claudia Conway, one of Kellyanne Conway’s four children, has been posting anti-Donald Trump messages to her TikTok followers.
Conway, 15, is one of the four children of Kellyanne and George Conway. The couple married in April 2001. She has a twin, George IV, as well as two sisters, Charlotte and Vanessa. Conway and her twin brother celebrate their birthday on October 17. The children were raised in Alpine, New Jersey. The Washington Post reported in May 2017 that George Conway has hired personal security to keep his family safe.
Conway’s father has been a frequent critic of the president. Previously, Trump has called George Conway “a stone cold LOSER & husband from hell!” The New York Times reported in February 2020 that the couple was unhappy over George Conway’s constant barbs toward the president.

In one video, Conway is quoted as saying, “Believe it or not, you can have your own opinions simply by educating yourself.”

In explaining how I feel about one thing that Donald Trump said or did to my daughters, I would be remiss in not revealing the full conversation, which is also why Mommy, who’s a woman, did not support the first female presidential candidate for a major party.
The president’s counselor added that she told her daughters she “very much” respected the fact the Hillary Clinton was running for president. Kellyanne Conway also said that it showed her children “that in this country, anybody can do anything if they set their mind to it.”
