Former White House adviser Kellyanne Conway says Donald Trump has offered her a full pardon after losing the 2020 presidential election.
in her book Here’s the deal: MemoirsA former White House aide, due to be released on Tuesday, chronicles her personal and political journey.
The book is aimed at many targets, including Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, but reports that it does little to criticize the former president. Washington Post I ran several excerpts from the book.
In the book, Conway recalls sitting in the Oval Office with a former president who he thought would not have been elected without Twitter.
“That’s true enough, but as I reminded him, ‘make sure you don’t get elected” she wrote when it comes to social media.
She also wrote about the shock of his loss to Joe Biden in the 2020 presidential election.
“Trump was more shocked by the loss in 2020 than the win in 2016,” she said in the book.
At the end of his term, President Trump discussed and made a proposal for pardons and pardons with her.
“Can I get you one?” It is said that President Trump asked her.
“Do you know something, I don’t know,” Ms Conway replied, she said. “Why do I have to be forgiven?”
“Because they’re after everyone, baby. It doesn’t matter,” Trump said according to the book.
Conway said the conversation was “courtely declined.”[ing]”.
Conway also wrote that Trump said at a dinner in Mar-a-Lago in 2021 that he “made history” at the White House and that “we will all come back.”
In the last hours of his term, President Trump reluctantly announced 143 pardons and commutations to friends and allies as he prepares to hand over power to his Democratic successor.
This included an apology to his allies, including Steve Bannon, Roger Stone, Paul Manafort and Michael Flynn.
