WASHINGTON, KOMPAS.com - Kellyanne Conway announced her resignation on Sunday and is expected to leave the White House at the end of the month.

Her untimely departure comes as the US President is struggling to build a lead in the polls ahead of the November election.

Kellyanne Conway is one of President Donald Trump’s most influential and longest-serving advisers.

She played a pivotal role during Trump’s 2016 presidential bid and has staunchly defended the US President and his policies.

She became the first woman to successfully steer a White House bid before becoming a Senior Counselor to President Donald Trump. She informed Trump of her decision in the Oval Office.

Conway cited a need to spend time with her four children in a resignation letter she posted Sunday night.

Her husband, George, had become an outspoken Trump critic and her family a subject of Washington’s rumor mill.

“We disagree about plenty but we are united on what matters most: the kids,” she wrote. “For now, and for my beloved children, it will be less drama, more mama.”

She is still slated to speak at the Republican National Convention this week.
