Kellyanne Conway, President-elect Donald Trump’s former campaign manager, said on Thursday that she would soon either be working in the new administration or be on the outside to “haunt” lawmakers who try to get in Mr. Trump’s way.

Ms. Conway said she has already turned down the position of White House press secretary, but didn’t rule out another role within the administration.

“I’m going to support him. I’m either going to go outside and build this surround sound superstructure so that every time somebody tries to get in his way with legislation he wants to pass, I will be there to haunt them,” she said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

“Including the 10 Democrats that are up in 2018 in seats that he just won, and the additional five or six that are in states … that he came close to winning,” she said. “That’s very important. I want this guy to have 60 or 61 senators after 2018. Or I’ll go inside.”

“I think after we form the Cabinet … then we’ll start to announce some of the senior staff positions, which could happen as soon as this week,” she said.
