Conway: Anti-Trump Protesters ‘Upset’ About The Election

A top aide to President Trump claimed Thursday that the large crowds of protesters greeting congressional Republicans when they return to their states and districts are just angry that Hillary Clinton did not win last year’s election.

According to Newsmax, White House counselor and spokeswoman Kellyanne Conway argued that Democrats are “upset with an election result they didn’t see coming.” She told Fox News that Trump’s actions since taking office are “exactly what he said he would do.” She added: “The fact is that this president, a man of action and impact, is actually keeping his promises at very fast clip early in his administration. … (The nation) is not accustomed to having presidential leadership of that sort.”

Conway, who said some Americans are reluctant to accept the new administration’s “swiftness of change,” accused demonstrators of failing to offer alternatives to the Trump agenda. “That’s what concerns me. Protesting is covered under the First Amendment. That’s all fine, but come up with your own solutions,” she declared.

Conway blasted the Democratic National Committee and Democratic lawmakers. “The opposition party is exactly that these days,” she said. “They bellyache and moan and complain about most things. I haven't heard any solutions. It's just like Hillary Clinton in the campaign. What was her message? A Donald Trump ad, ‘I’m not Donald Trump.’ That's not a message. That's a screed.”

The counselor, part of Trump’s inner circle of advisers, maintained that protesters are “echoing and articulating fears that are unfounded and are not going to be realized by this president.” She explained: “He said he would repeal and replace Obamacare. Why? Because we want it to be more patient-centric. You have had insurers pulling out of the market saying that Obamacare is a ‘death spiral.’ We have got to do better. Get people covered who aren’t.”

Regarding the administration’s reversal of President Obama’s policy concerning the restroom choices of transgender students in public schools, Conway commented: “This is very consistent with the president who has promised to bring power back to the states. That which is not reserved to the federal government belongs to the states.”
