President-elect Donald Trump's senior adviser Kellyanne Conway said Monday she'd been offered the job of the White House press secretary, but "politely" turned it down.
In an interview aired Monday on "The Hugh Hewitt Show," the former Trump campaign manager agreed with Hewitt's observation that Trump "is his own best spokesman."
"I have politely declined that job," she said. "I think it’s an incredibly important position to fill. And I know that there will be a qualified man or woman who takes that position and does an excellent job for President Trump and Vice President Pence."
"As you can imagine, if it’s President Trump’s administration, communications will be a very important aspect of it. And there will be a number of people handling that."
But she took a swipe at the press corps that new press secretary will face as well.
"I think the skeptical, the hostile press will continue the way they have, frankly, in this last five weeks since he got elected," she said. "And I think many of them are election deniers still fighting the last war, still thinking we’re in the permanent campaign."
