A senior Trump advisor allegedly 'punched a man in the face' at a glitzy inauguration ball.

Kellyanne Conway intervened in a scuffle between two men at the Liberty Ball which took place in Washingtown hours after Mr Trump was sworn in as president.

The New York Daily News reports that the two men wouldn't break up the fight and Conway intervened, punching one of them at least three times in the face according to a witness.

Ms Conway was a campaign manager for Mr Trump during his campaign and is currently under fire for comments she made about 'alternative facts'.

Fox Business correspondent Charlie Gasparino penned a Facebook account of the alleged incident.

Inside the ball we see a fight between two guys in tuxes and then suddenly out of nowhere came Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway who began throwing some mean punches at one of the guys," Gasparino wrote.

"Whole thing lasted a few mins no one was hurt except maybe the dude she smacked."

He added that he didn't exaggerate any of his account.

The White House has yet to comment on the reports.
