On ABC's This Week program, host George Stephanopoulos reminded Conway that Trump's attorney, Jay Sekulow, had told him that the president was not involved in a writing a misleading letter in defense of Don Jr.

In an interview on ABC News' "This Week", the counselor to the president blasted a New York Times report on the mounting GOP competition to run against Trump - including Vice President Mike Pence.

Trump plans to be in the White House for seven and a half more years, Conway added, saying, "He plans on being a two-term president".

Conway said she has "zero concern" about a Pence shadow campaign.

"That is complete fiction. Vice President Pence is a very loyal, very dutiful and incredibly effective and active vice president with this president".

President Donald Trump expects to serve eight years, and speculation about GOP contenders in 2020 is a "parlor game" played by those who aren't in Trump's "inner circle", top aide Kellyanne Conway said Sunday.

Conway also addressed new poll numbers out this week, showing President Trump's approval rating sinking to new lows, with support among his base also taking a dip.

"His approval rating among Republicans and conservative and Trump voters is down slightly".

Conway's comments come at a time when both the Justice Department and several congressional panels are investigating whether Trump campaign associates colluded with Russian Federation during the 2016 election.

"'Focus on the agenda, '" she said, still speaking directly to Trump, before switching back to third person. "You have to listen to his special counsel, Ty Cobb, who works in the White House now and has said very clearly, George, this week that we will continue to cooperate with Bob Mueller and his investigation".
