Senior Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway said she may head up a group being formed that will provide “a surround-sound super structure” to support the incoming administration’s goals.
In an interview with the Washington Post, Conway told the newspaper the organization needs to be run by someone “close to the president” who understands his priorities.

“He’s going to be a very active president who wants to accomplish things quickly,” she said. “We want to honor that by being ready.”
An immediate goal for the organization, according to the Post, is to defend Trump’s Cabinet nominees if they face confirmation battles.
“We’re fighting and planning how to continue this seismic change and the Trump revolution into the next election, and you’ve got the Democrats literally rehiring the same people [Nancy Pelosi] who failed them,” Conway said. “We’re trying to learn the right lessons from our election.”
The group is being compared to the pro-Reagan group Citizens for America, aided by the power of social media.
Richard F. Hohlt, a Washington-based Republican consultant and lobbyist, told the Post that will equate to “Citizens for America on steroids.”
“They’re smart enough to know how to harness the movement to their advantage,” Hohlt said. “This is going to be huge. Republicans have never had this before.”
