In an interview on ABC's "This Week," Kellyanne Conway was asked about past statements she made criticizing Trump's tone and attacks on his rivals.


"I don't like when people hurl personal insults, that will never change," Conway said. "I'm the mother of four small children. That would be a terrible example for me to feel otherwise."

But when pressed by host George Stephanopoulos on whether Trump would change his approach, Conway defended his tone.

"He doesn't hurl personal insults," she said. 

"He just this week — look what he talked about. He's bringing the case right to communities of color in Michigan, and he's speaking to all Americans when he does that. What he's doing is he's challenging the Democratic Party.

Conway took over as Trump's new campaign manager last week. She had chastised Trump in February, though, for "hurling personal insults" and using "vulgar" language. 

"Do I want somebody who hurls personal insults or who goes and talks about philosophical differences?" Conway asked on CNN at the time.

Trump has been known for his combative campaigning style throughout the election cycle.
