"i love trump 😌🧚♀️💖," Claudia Conway captioned a recent TikTok (opens in new tab), "but replace ‘love’ with ‘think that we should extinguish.’"
The 15-year-old daughter of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway and George Conway, a D.C.-based attorney and outspoken Donald Trump critic, has been posting anti-Trump memes (opens in new tab) and Black Lives Matter messages (opens in new tab) for her more than 22,000 followers on the video app (opens in new tab) under the handle @shortfakeblond (opens in new tab).
When asked by a follower whether she shares "the same political views" as her mom, she responded "no ❤️❤️" in the comments section of this (opens in new tab) video.
"Believe it or not you can have your own opinions simply by educating yourself," she said in another video.
Claudia's TikTok bio reads, "it’s a great day to arrest brett hankison, john mattingly, and myles cosgrove," a reference to the three officers involved in the death of Breonna Taylor (opens in new tab), who was shot and killed by police in her own home. Taylor’s family has filed a lawsuit against the officers, according to The Washington Post, but none of them have been charged. Police opened an internal investigation and placed the officers involved on administrative leave, but only Hankison has been fired from the Louisville Metro Police.
The teen's bio on her (opens in new tab)Instagram account (which is followed by Ivanka Trump) (opens in new tab) reads "activist," with a link to a petition (opens in new tab) demanding justice
Claudia is also making her other progressive political beliefs known on social media: "why do people hate on trump supporters... like why cant we just respect everyone's opinions? SIKE nah block me pls and then educate yourself," she wrote (opens in new tab) in one TikTok video.
In another (opens in new tab), she slammed the Trump administration’s argument that taxpayer-funded organizations should have the ability to refuse to work with same-sex couples.
In 2017, Kellyanne told TIME (opens in new tab) magazine that she wanted her daughter to know that she “very much” respected Hillary Clinton's presidential run and "in this country, anybody can do anything if they set their mind to it.”
Despite their political differences, the mother-daughter duo seem to be on good terms.
When asked by a TikTok follower whether they "get along usually," Claudia responded "yes we do get along!" Another follower said: "Girl you got your platform now, use it." Claudia responded: "i will!!!! WE WILL NOT BE SILENT."
