New Donald Trump Campaign Manager Kellyanne Conway Advises Him to ‘Be Authentic’

Conway spoke to ABC News outside Trump Tower after her first day on the job.

“Day One was amazing,” Conway, 49, told ABC News’ Tom Llamas outside Trump Tower in New York Wednesday.

Stepping into her new role as campaign manager, Conway said the advice she will give Trump is to “be authentic, because that's what Americans appreciate.”

The hiring of Conway and conservative news site Breitbart’s Steve Bannon as the campaign’s new CEO follows a week in which Trump’s campaign dealt with falling poll numbers, a public battle with the family of slain Army Capt. Humayun Khan and a New York Times report on the turmoil within his campaign.

Trump has sought to put the week behind him, delivering a more in-depth foreign policy speech and making an appeal to black voters.

As for how she’ll be doing things differently now that she has joined the campaign, Conway said, “We are expanding plenty, and we are making sure that our ground game, our data operation and our field staff in all of these key states have exactly what they need.”

She said she plans to reach out to the field staff in key states today.

Manafort remains with the campaign.

“I am very appreciative of the campaign that Paul Manafort and [his deputy] Rick Gates have built to this point,” Conway said. “I'm very happy that they are going to continue to help us.”
