Kellyanne Conway says she turned down President-elect Donald Trump's offer to be White House press secretary.

The former Trump campaign manager, who now plays an integral role on the transition team, told conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt on Monday that when offered the position by Trump she "politely declined."

"As you can imagine, if it’s President Trump’s administration, communications will be a very important aspect of it. And there will be a number of people handling that," Conway said, noting that whoever the next press secretary is they will have to deal with a "hostile press."

"And I think many of them [in the press] are election deniers still fighting the last war, still thinking we’re in the permanent campaign," Conway added.

Press secretary is one of a number of positions Trump has yet to fill. Among the names Trump is reportedly considering for the position are conservative talk radio host Laura Ingraham, Fox News contributor Monica Crowley and Republican National Committee spokesman Sean Spicer.
