White House counselor Kellyanne Conway's teen daughter is going viral on the social media video app TikTok for directly opposing her mother's boss: President Donald Trump.

Claudia Conway, 15, has shared several TikTok videos in which she sounds off on Trump and his supporters, voices support for the Black Lives Matter movement and more. Her bio reads: "it's a great day to arrest brett hankison, jon mattingly, and myles cosgrove," referring to the police officers who are accused of killing Breonna Taylor. In one of her videos, she says: "I don't support the pussy-grabbing president. Period. Piece of shit. Period."

She also spoke to USA Today about her newly found viral fame and her online activism.

"I know a lot of my friends are so informed and I think they wouldn't be if it weren't for social media, which is why I think using one's platform for good and for the education of others is so, so important, especially in our day," she said.

Though her mother is deep in the Trump administration, serving on his 2016 presidential election campaign as well, George Conway (her father, Kellyanne's husband) has been vocally anti-Trump as well, having founded an anti-Trump Republican super-PAC in 2019.

"My dad is pretty supportive of it, you know, my mom, she's always taught me to stand up for what I believe in," she told USA Today. "A lot of people have been telling me that I'm disrespecting my mother by doing this—I'm not at all," Claudia said. "I want nothing but love for her because she is an amazing person."

She went on to say that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg are two of her idols.

"The self-described teen activist said that she decided to use her social media channels to advance more liberal causes after educating herself on issues such as marriage for same-sex couples and abortion," USA Today writes.

She also opened up about how politics play a role in her family.

"Growing up in a family where you're really only exposed to one side and your mom is a public figure working for some of the biggest Republican politicians in the nation, you know, 12-year-old me was wondering, 'Why? Why is my mom doing this?' she told USA Today. "'What does she believe in? Why does she believe this and why does she fight for this so much?' And so I started reading."

Claudia added that though her mother hasn't changed many of her views, she said: "I honestly think that she is pro-Black Lives Matter because of me."
