In one of the least shocking moves since Donald Trump won the presidency, his transition team announced Thursday that the outspoken, and often misguided, Kellyanne Conway will join the president-elect's most trusted inner circle as the counselor to the president.

"Kellyanne Conway has been a trusted adviser and strategist who played a crucial role in my victory," Trump said in a statement viewed by the New York Post.

"She is a tireless and tenacious advocate of my agenda and has amazing insights on how to effectively communicate our message. I am pleased that she will be part of my senior team in the West Wing," he added.

Conway was the president-elect's final campaign manager and has defended her boss tirelessly.
