Trump Shares Photos of George Conway Celebrating 2016 Victory

Former President Donald Trump took a swipe at George Conway, husband of his former campaign manager Kellyanne Conway, by sharing photos on his Truth Social site showing Conway celebrating Trump's 2016 presidential victory. The images depict Conway wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat alongside his wife and filming Trump amidst a crowd of supporters.

Conway, a conservative lawyer, has become a vocal critic of Trump in recent years, co-founding The Lincoln Project with other Republicans opposed to the former president. Kellyanne Conway, in contrast, remained loyal to Trump throughout his time in office. Trump called attention to this contradiction, captioning the photos: "Mr. Kellyanne Conway celebrating my Victory in 2016!"

Why this matters: This public feud between Trump and Conway highlights the deep divisions within the Republican Party and the challenges Trump faces in maintaining unity among his former allies. As Trump prepares for a potential 2024 presidential run, these kinds of public spats could have significant implications for his campaign and the party's overall strategy.

The revelation of these celebratory images from 2016 comes as hits, back Conway continues to publicly denounce Trump. He recently dismissed Trump's claims that he was not sleeping during his ongoing hush money trial in New York, criticizing the former president's reputation for tardiness at Trump Tower and the White House. Conway also slammed Trump's legal team's approach in the trial as a "fiasco."

The hush money trial, in which adult film star Stormy Daniels testified about her alleged affair with Trump, has been a focal point of media attention. Trump's lawyers sought to discredit Daniels as a greedy liar who profited from the allegations, claiming she received $800,000 for a book deal. The trial is part of a broader investigation into Trump's business dealings.

After Trump's surprise victory over Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election, many Republicans who had initially opposed him, such as Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger, began to speak out against the new president. This shift garnered significant media attention and notoriety for the dissenting voices within the party. George Conway's decision to become a Trump critic was seen as particularly intriguing given his wife's close ties to the administration.

Conway, a graduate of Yale University and Harvard Law School, was considered for high-profile positions in the Trump administration, including Solicitor General and chief of the Justice Department's Civil Division. However, he withdrew his name from consideration, stating it was "not the right time for me to leave the private sector." Conway and Kellyanne announced their divorce last year.

The resurfacing of these 2016 victory celebration photos by Trump himself highlights the stark contrast between George Conway's initial support and his subsequent transformation into one of the former president's most prominent conservative critics. As Trump faces ongoing legal challenges and prepares for a potential 2024 presidential run, the complex dynamics between him and former allies like the Conways continue to shape the political landscape.
