During an interview with MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, Trump senior advisor Kellyanne Conway said that she’s getting death threats from liberals thanks to anti-Trump rhetoric, ABC News reported Friday.
According to ABC:
“Anytime I respond, anytime I defend myself against these … allegations that are now leading to death threats … I’m seen as ungracious,” Conway said during an interview Thursday on MSNBC with Chris Matthews, referring, in part, to claims that the Trump campaign gave a platform to white nationalists. “Why are we sore winners? I’m not a sore winner. I’m a winner. My guy is a winner. He’s the next president of the United States.”
Conway also slammed Jen Palmieri, who was communications director for Clinton’s presidential campaign, for penning an op-ed in The Washington Post on Thursday in which she claimed the Trump campaign catered to white supremacists.
Palmieri wrote, “I don’t know whether the Trump campaign needed to give a platform to white supremacists to win. But the campaign clearly did, and it had the effect of empowering the white-nationalist movement.”
The Washington Post also ran a piece written by editorial board member Jonathan Capeheart titled, “Yes, Kellyanne Conway, you did provide a platform for white supremacy.”
Matthews asked if the back-and-forth accusations are “going to end.”
“Ask Jen Palmieri that because she’s writing an op-ed, somebody else in The Washington Post today has a scathing headline about me which is not true but did lead to some death threats today and that’ll be on their doorstep,” Conway said.
“The fact is that [the Trump] campaign ran a race where we reached into those working class voters who felt they were the forgotten man or forgotten woman, they were the base of our support,” she added. “All [the Hillary Clinton campaign] needed to do was have a compelling, sticky, aspirational message for the American people….all I heard was ‘We’re not Donald Trump. That’s not a message.”
