“Needless to say, I continue to support the Lincoln Project and its mission. Passionately.”

Conway’s tweet came roughly the same time news broke that Kellyanne Conway would be leaving the White House at the end of the month. 

The Conways' announcements also came amid tweets from their teenage daughter Claudia, who has posted on social media vocalizing her views that conflict with those of both her parents. 

Claudia tweeted hours before the announcement from both of her parents that she would be taking a “mental health break from social media” and asked for “no hate” for her parents.

George Conway was among Republicans who founded The Lincoln Project. The group, which endorsed Democratic presidential nominee Joe BidenJoe BidenFormer Rep. Rohrabacher says he took part in Jan. 6 march to Capitol but did not storm building Saudis picked up drugs in Cairo used to kill Khashoggi: report Biden looking to build momentum for Putin meeting MORE, launched frequent ads attacking the president and his allies. 

Trump has fired back at The Lincoln Project over its critical ads. In May, he said it was a “group of RINO Republicans,” using an acronym meaning “Republican in name only,” who had “failed badly” at electing other candidates. 

He personally attacked George Conway in the same series of tweets, stating, “I don’t know what Kellyanne did to her deranged loser of a husband, Moonface, but it must have been really bad.” 

A spokesperson for The Lincoln Project was not immediately available for comment.
