White House counselor Kellyanne Conway delivered a speech at the Republican National Convention on Wednesday evening that portrayed President Trump as a humble, empathetic commander-in-chief who she has "seen firsthand many times ... comforting and encouraging a child who has lost a parent, a parent who has lost a child, a worker who lost his job, an adolescent who lost her way to drugs." She also praised the president's efforts to tackle the nation's drug crisis.

On a more personal note, Conway said Trump "helped me shatter a barrier in the world of politics by empowering me to manage his campaign to its successful conclusion," referring to the fact that in 2016 she became the first woman to run a successful U.S. presidential campaign.
