Hope Hicks to serve as White House communications director permanently

Hope Hicks to become Trump's third White House communications director: report

The rumors became official Tuesday when White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told the press that Hope Hicks is going to be the new communications director.

She was appointed as the Interim Communications director last month after Anthony Scaramucci was ousted.

Bloomberg first reported on the development in a story about the White House's plan to promote its tax reform push.

Miss Hicks said: "President Trump has a magnetic personality and exudes positive energy, which is infectious to those around him".

Hicks served as press secretary for Trump's campaign and had since worked as a presidential aide.

Earlier this year, Hicks joined Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump for Shabbat dinner at their Kalorama mansion, Politico reports.

As Vogue noted, Hicks is so trusted within the Trump family that prior to her new job appointment, she was the president's strategic communications director and "the sole gatekeeper overseeing his media interviews".

It appears the feeling is mutual. (The two also reportedly had a screaming match on the street on New York's Upper East Side.) Hicks reconsidered when Trump personally asked her to stay, and, per the Times, Hicks soon "found herself a near-constant presence by Mr. Trump's side, flying in his jet, living rent-free in a Trump-owned apartment, and attending to his mercurial moods".

Trump has already seen a number of high-profile staff shakeups, just eight months into his administration.

Hicks, 28, is the third White House communications director in the administration's almost eight months.

Prior to joining Mr Trump's campaign team, Ms Hicks had no experience working in politics.

Trump's first full-time director, Mike Dubke, resigned in May.

Beyond her literary work, Hicks also posed for campaigns for Ralph Lauren and Naturalizer shoes, according to Vogue. She has been interim communications director for the past few weeks. Hicks is a 2010 graduate of Southern Methodist University, where she majored in English and played club lacrosse.
