Kellyanne chatted with the president-elect in advance of going out and offering her comments and asked her permission if it was OK to go and voice her opinions in the matter and he said go for it,” Jason Miller said Monday on Fox News’s “The Kelly File.”
“And I think that’s one of the great things about this White House is the president-elect and our future president will take in a number of different viewpoints and opinions and then he’ll form his own decision and decide how he wants to go forward.”
On Sunday, Conway publicly aired her concerns about the 2012 GOP nominee, who is being considered for secretary of State. She questioned Romney’s loyalty because he was a vocal opponent of Trump during the campaign.
According to MSNBC, Trump was reportedly “furious” over Conway’s comments about the former Massachusetts governor. Sources told the network that high-ranking aides were also frustrated that she isn’t being a team player and is “pushing her own agenda.”
