WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday said he would not fire White House adviser Kellyanne Conway, despite the conclusion by a U.S. government watchdog that she repeatedly violated U.S. law by making political statements in her official White House post.

Trump, in an interview with Fox News, defended Conway, saying it was a free speech issue.
