Kellyanne Conway Comes To Trump’s Defense After Her Husband Calls Him “Racist”

George Conway called Trump a “racist” in a Washington Post op-ed in response to Trump's Sunday tweets.

Kellyanne Conway has come to Trump’s defense after her husband, George Conway, wrote an op-ed for the Washington Post calling Trump racist.

On Fox News, Kellyanne Conway said, “No, I totally disagree. "But I work with this president. I know him. I know his heart. I know his actions. I know how much he has helped people of color. And I go by what people do, not what other people say about them."

She continued, "And also, respectfully, I'm not going to run around pointing out everybody's disagreements with the people in their lives. I sure could. I can point out people's disagreements with their former spouses, their current spouses and partners, their future spouses and partners. But I won't do that. And I would caution people... not to do that."

Conway, who has been a vehement critic of Trump, wrote the op-ed in response to Trump’s Sunday tweets telling four congresswomen to “go back” to other countries, according to The Hill.

"Sunday left no doubt. Naiveté, resentment and outright racism, roiled in a toxic mix, have given us a racist president," he wrote.

On Sunday, Trump tweeted that the progressive congresswomen "who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe" should "go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came."

His comments were targeted at Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, and Rashida Tlaib. Three of those women were born in the U.S., while Omar was born in Somalia and immigrated to the U.S. when she was very young.
