Claudia Conway, 15, grabbed headlines after she went viral for her anti-Trump views and Black Lives Matter support. She also used her social media accounts to troll her parents, Kellyanne and George Conway
Trump counselor Kellyanne Conway’s teen daughter has posted her ‘last tweet,’ saying that her parents are forcing her to delete her social media accounts.
‘My parents are forcing me to delete social media so this is my last tweet. apparently, i don’t have a platform! it’s fake! love you all so much. keep fighting!’ Claudia Conway, 15, tweeted Monday night.
Claudia also posted a handful of videos on TikTok Monday night, including one of herself pouting with the caption ‘last video cuz my parents are making me delete all social media’ and another one where she’s dancing while waving a Trump/Pence campaign sign, which is captioned ‘guys she’s cured don’t worry. MAGA. Trump 2020.’
It remains to be seen whether Claudia will need to actually delete the existing content on her social media platforms – which include Twitter, TikTok and Instagram – or if she’s just being barred from posting anything in the future.

Claudia also took to TikTok to post a ‘last video,’ before posting additional videos, one of which claimed ‘she’s cured’ while she danced around waving a Trump/Pence campaign sign
The apparent forced deletion of Claudia’s social media accounts comes about a week after she started using the accounts to troll her parents, Kellyanne and George Conway, an outspoken Trump critic.
Claudia made headlines after she started going viral with anti-Trump TikToks and using her accounts to support the Black Lives Matter movement, despite her mom working in the White House.
While the White House counselor previously said she supports her daughter making her own mind up about her political views, Claudia has recently claimed that her parents were attempting to shut off her phone to stop her causing more controversy for the family.
On July 3, George Conway, who is one of the founders of the anti-Trump political action group The Lincoln Project, attempted to intervene, telling journalists that neither he nor Kellyanne gave permission for them to speak to Claudia or any of their other children.

The 15-year-old also hit back at her father George tweeting ‘sorry your marriage failed’
‘To journalists: @kellyannepolls and I do *not* consent to any communications between you and any of our minor children, including our daughter Claudia. So desist. Thank you,’ he wrote.
But an unhappy Claudia snapped back saying he was trying to stop her being heard.
‘You’re just mad that I’m finally getting my voice heard. sorry your marriage failed,’ she said.
The 15-year-old also tagged both her parents’ Twitter accounts in several tweets where she told them ‘please stop shutting of my phone’.
Her father’s failed intervention came as Claudia streamed live to TikTok while Kellyanne confronted her about the content she was posted about her boss Trump.

Kellyanne eventually tried to physically take the phone from her daughter when she wouldn’t stop posting.
‘You can get back to it, turn it off,’ Kellyanne said. ‘Turn it off now lady.’
‘No I’m not ok thanks guys though,’ Claudia said to commenters posting on the video, ignoring her mother.
‘Also she keeps insulting my mental health,’ Claudia adds, as she drinks from a red cup.
‘I’m just showing everyone the truth, you’re literally not letting me use my freedom of speech.’
Kellyannne responds that she ‘can use her freedom of speech but daddy just wants you to shut it off because not everyone who follows you is well meaning’.
‘That many people have nothing to do? That’s amazing, it’s so nice out,’ Kellyanne then asks, looking at the number of viewers on Claudia’s stream.
The screen then suddenly goes black with a message saying the host is away as Claudia is heard shouting ‘Mom, what are you doing’ and Kellyanne responds, ‘it’s mine’.

The videostream appeared to lag as Kellyanne was then shown wrestling the phone from her daughter’s hand as viewers voiced their support for her Claudia.
In one of the most recent videos, which has more than 111,000 views, Claudia dances in front of a background of follower comments where people highlight that she is ‘anti-Trump’.
‘Finding out that Kellyanne Conway’s daughter is on tiktok and is super anti-trump and has dozens of pro BLM tiktoks and tiktoks telling trump supporters to go f**k themselves is the bright spot of 2020 that I didn’t know I was going to get but definitely needed,’ one of the comments reads.

Another video shows Claudia encouraging TikTok users to leave one-star reviews online for Trump’s ‘restaurants, hotels, and golf courses’.
‘why do people hate on trump supporters… like why can’t we just respect everyone’s opinions?’ she writes in another video, where she mockingly traces a fake tear down her own cheek with her finger.
In another she blasts the opinion that just because her mom works for Trump, she too must be a supporter of the president.
‘She also was his campaign manager during the 2016 election – so your point?’ she says to the camera.
‘Believe it or not you can have your own opinions not influenced by your parents at all… simply by educating yourself.’
Claudia’s mom was Trump’s third campaign manager during the 2016 race for the White House and is a close adviser (pictured together at his election night rally in Manhattan, New York, in November 2016). Her father is the founder of an anti-Trump organization
The 15-year-old has been posting videos calling for people to leave one-star reviews on Trump’s ‘restaurants, hotels, and golf courses’ and saying ‘when our president for the next four years is either going to be a [email protected]$t or a [email protected]$t’.

Kellyanne has previously spoken about what she has told her daughter’s about her decision to work for Trump in the 2016 election.
‘In explaining how I feel about one thing that Donald Trump said or did to my daughters, I would be remiss in not revealing the full conversation, which is also why Mommy, who’s a woman, did not support the first female presidential candidate for a major party,’ Kellyanne said after she helped Trump beat Hillary Clinton to the White House in 2016.
‘I would tell them that I respect very much that Secretary Clinton was running for president, and it showed that in this country, anybody can do anything if they set their mind to it.
‘At the same time, I tried to explain to them that you could be excited for someone with whom you disagree, and share in that moment in history as a proud American.’
Claudia has also posted multiple videos where she demands justice for Breonna Taylor, the black EMT who was gunned down by cops when they performed a botched no-knock arrest warrant at her apartment in Louisville on March 13.
Claudia’s TikTok bio reads that ‘it’s a great day to arrest brett hankison, john mattingly, and myles cosgrove’ – the three plainclothes cops who stormed Taylor’s apartment and shot her dead.
In one video, Claudia raises her eyebrow at the camera while text across the screen urges ‘leftist, acab, anti-trump, blm’ supporters to connect with her

In another video Claudia blasts the opinion that just because her mom works for Trump, she too must be a supporter of the president
In one video, Claudia raises her eyebrow at the camera while text across the screen urges ‘leftist, acab, anti-trump, blm’ supporters to connect with her.
‘hi so if you’re leftist, acab, anti-trump, blm, etc. please interact w this because most of my comments are threats from angry trump supporters,’ she wrote.
The 15-year-old urges people not to hate her parents because of their political beliefs in another video with her friends.
‘Just please no hate to my mom or my dad, they’re both amazing people… and I love them so much,’ she says.
Claudia’s outspoken beliefs first emerged when New York Times reporter Taylor Lorenz shared several of her videos on Twitter, praising her as ‘an outspoken leftist TikToker’.
Lorenz tweeted that Claudia ‘wants followers/views and is outspoken [about] her own beliefs.’
Claudia is one of Kellyanne and George Conway’s four children.
While her mother is a close adviser to Trump and was his third campaign manager during the 2016 race for the White House, her father is also vocally anti-Trump.

He co-founded The Lincoln Project in 2019 alongside several prominent Republicans and former Republicans.
It aims to prevent Trump getting a second term in the White House and, in April, it pledged its endorsement of Joe Biden for president.
In May, the group drew the ire of Trump when it released an ad slamming his leadership amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Trump’s handling of the crisis has repeatedly come under fire, from his initial denial of the deadly outbreak’s danger to American lives to his ongoing refusal to follow the guidance of experts and wear a face mask.
‘Millions worry that a loved one won’t survive COVID-19, there’s mourning in America,’ says The Lincoln Project video.
‘Under the leadership of Donald Trump, our country is weaker, and sicker, and poorer.
‘And now, Americans are asking: If we have another four years like this, will there even be an America?’
Trump hit back at the video, blasting Conway a ‘deranged loser’ and ‘Moonface’.
‘A group of [Republican In Name Only] Republicans who failed badly 12 years ago, then again 8 years ago, and then got BADLY beaten by me, a political first timer, 4 years ago,’ the president tweeted at the time.
‘I don’t know what Kellyanne did to her deranged loser of a husband, Moonface, but it must have been really bad.’
