Hope Hicks Appointed White House Communications Director

Hope Hicks Appointed White House Communications Director

She previously served as the press secretary for Trump's 2016 campaign, as well as the national press secretary for his presidential transition team, and had been named interim White House communications director in August.

She became the interim communications director after Anthony Scaramucci was ousted from the job in July.

He gave an expletive filled interview to the New Yorker's Ryan Lizza, in which he bashed then-White House chief strategist Steve Bannon and then-White House chief of staff Reince Priebus.

The 28-year-old Hicks has retained former Justice Department lawyer Robert Trout to represent her in special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into possible collusion between Trump associates and Russian Federation during last year's presidential election. She later joined the Trump Organization full time.

It appears the feeling is mutual. She said, "Absolutely nothing,"' Trump said.

After Mr Scaramucci was announced as the new communications director in July - replacing Mike Dubke, who resigned in May - Mr Scaramucci said at a news conference: "Dan [Scavino] and Hope Hicks are staying".

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. Scaramucci, who took the position in July, was sacked less than two weeks later. As Cosmopolitan uncovered, she even posed for the book jacket for the first book in the It Girl series, which is an offshoot of the Gossip Girl series.

Hicks, 28, had not moved into the office designated for the White House communications director, instead opting to remain at her current desk just outside the Oval Office.

Originally from Greenwich, Connecticut, Ms Hicks received her English degree from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas in 2010.
