Kellyanne Conway said her ability to "think like a man and to behave like a lady" is what has led to her triumph and earned her a position as counselor to the president.

"My comfort level came in learning how to think like a man and to behave like a lady," she said in an interview with Time magazine. "I harken back to Margaret Thatcher's statement, where she said: 'being powerful, is like being a lady; if you have to say you are, you probably are not."

While noting her role as the "highest ranking, non-relative female" in Trump's White House, Conway also beamed in the fact that she has been able to gain the president's trust in such a short amount of time.

"I am so pleased that I have his ear and his trust," she said.

Former president and CEO of The Polling Company in Washington, D.C., Conway joined the Trump presidential campaign in 2016. After campaign manager Paul Manafort's exit, she took over as campaign manager.
