Hope Hicks Officially Named White House Communications Director

Hope Hicks Officially Named White House Communications Director

The position has been vacant several times during Trump's first seven-and-a-half months in office, and was most recently held on a full-time basis by Anthony Scaramucci, who only lasted 11 days.

Hicks has been a constant presence with President Trump since he announced his campaign in June 2015.

It appears the feeling is mutual. Lewandowski, according to GQ, simply replied, "You made a big fucking mistake; you're fucking dead to me".

Her relationship with the Trump family began while she was an employee of Hiltzik Strategies, a NY public relations firm, where she worked on projects for Ivanka Trump, the President's eldest daughter.

In May she was mocked on social media after issuing a rare statement in response to a Washington Post article that suggested Mr Trump belittles his staff in private.

That work grew into a close relationship with the businessman-turned-politician, making Hicks one of the few White House aides who has avoided the infighting that has largely defined Trump's presidency.

Here's how Vogue note that Hicks "joined" the campaign. But despite the ostensibly temporary nature of her initial appointment, no active search for another communications director had been conducted as of late August. Hicks is a 2010 graduate of Southern Methodist University, where she majored in English and played club lacrosse.

'He doesn't just put milquetoast women around him, he puts strong, very outspoken women in very powerful positions and in the first time in history we also have a female communications director, ' Huckabee Sanders said pointing to Hicks. She's also among the highest-paid employees of Trump's White House.
