The president-elect’s former campaign manager — who was named as counselor to the president Thursday — responded to criticism that he hasn’t held a press conference since July during an interview on ABC.

“Let me say this,” Conway said. “Donald Trump and Mike Pence have been forming their Cabinet at a rapid pace. The record speed with which they’ve done their Cabinet and their senior team is really something to behold.”

Conway turned down the position of press secretary, but said the transition team will name one soon.

“This will be a traditional White House in the sense you will have a great deal of press availability on a daily basis and you’ll have a president who continues to be engaged with the press.”
