“What everyone should want, and the country needs, is a ‘President’ capable of comprehending what it means to ‘take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed,’” Conway tweeted.


Conway, a conservative lawyer, was responding to Trump’s tweet about Attorney General General Jeff SessionsJefferson (Jeff) Beauregard SessionsEx-Sen.

That's "what everyone wants," Trump said in a tweet Friday morning.

Conway also cited Article II of the Constitution, sometimes known as the Faithful Execution or Take Care Clause, that imposes a duty on the president to enforce the laws of the United States.

Trump has repeatedly criticized his attorney general this week and questioned his loyalty during an interview with Fox News.

Sessions, who rarely responds, then released a sharp rebuttal on Thursday.

“While I am attorney general, the actions of the Department of Justice will not be improperly influenced by political considerations,” Sessions said in a statement. "I demand the highest standards, and where they are not met, I take action."

George Conway’s tweets critical of Trump are a stark contrast to his wife’s strong defense of her boss.

Kellyanne Conway recently said that “part of” her husband feels she “chose” Trump over him.

“I feel there’s a part of him that thinks I chose Donald Trump over him,” she told The Washington Post. "Which is ridiculous. One is my work and one is my marriage." 

Conway said she believes his public criticism of Trump is "disrespectful." 

“I think it’s disrespectful,” she said. “I think it disrespects his wife.”

She then walked back her comments by saying that other "people see it that way."

The Washington Post also revealed earlier this month that George Conway is part of a “semi-secret” group of conservatives critical of Trump.

Conway has reportedly been spotted at meetings for the group, known as the “Meeting of the Concerned.”

He also suggested that Trump regularly makes false or misleading statements.
