Claudia Conway, the 15-year-old daughter of Kellyanne and George Conway, stated on Twitter that she is seeking emancipation from her parents, reports NBC 5.
Conway first announced that she was looking to be emancipated after finding out that her mother would be speaking at the Republican National Convention, stating that she was “devastated” at the news.
She then tweeted that she would be “officially pushing for emancipation.”
Conway has publicly opposed her parents’ political views on both TikTok and Twitter, according to the New York Post.
She stated that her mother’s position as an adviser to President Trump was “selfish” and “ruined” her life. She added that she also does not share political views with her father, George Conway, although both agree on their opposition to the president. Claudia’s father is Filipino American. Her mom is White.
Conway later clarified that she was not seeking emancipation solely because of her mother’s job and attributed her decision to “years of childhood trauma and abuse.”
Kellyanne Conway announced that she would be leaving her job at the White House to focus on her family, one day after Claudia Conway stated that she wanted to be emancipated, reports CNN. George Conway had previously announced he would be leaving his job as well with the anti-Trump group, The Lincoln Project. He also cited family reasons, according to The Hill.
