Kellyanne Conway, President-elect Donald Trump's campaign manager, said Sunday morning that the billionaire will stick to his pledge to "drain the swamp" and that "the gravy train is about to have its wheels blown off."
Conway said Trump will stay true to his swamp-draining campaign promises, even if his transition team contains Washington Republican establishment figures.
“Look, these are people who are talented and have done this before. You can't just appoint novices, you have to have people who know what they're doing. But at the same time moving forward this is an administration that's going to run very differently than typical Washington,” Conway said on "Fox News Sunday.” “Finally, the voters got what they wanted, what they've been begging for for 30 years, which is give us the opportunity, give us a person who actually represents the outsider, non-Washington, business-experienced type of profile, somebody who goes to Washington owing nobody anything.”
Conway said that a decision about the chief of staff position is “imminent” but would not commit to a specific timetable.
“The gravy train is about to have its wheels blown off and its engine completely ripped from its bearings because there is just no reason to keep this consultant-lobbyist axis at such – a-x-i-s -- at such a level where people feel like their interests are not being served,” she said. “Part of the rigged, corrupt system that he was giving voice to so often was the one we heard from voters. They don't appreciate all the organs and adjuncts of Washington, D.C., working against them. This is an administration for the forgotten man and the forgotten woman.
"Nobody thinks of lobbyists and consultants as the forgotten man or forgotten woman.”
