Trump's Longtime Aide Named White House Communications Director

The Associated Press reports that White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed the news Tuesday, Sept. 11.

It's official, Hope Hicks the interim White House Communications Director following the ouster of Anthony Scaramucci aka Scaramucci Mane has officially been given the position and I think she might be in for the long haul.

The 28-year-old worked for the Trump Organization preceding her crusade work, incorporating with Ivanka Trump's form organization.

Unlike other Trump aides, Hicks does not make appearances on cable news, and instead maintains a low profile in the President's inner circle. She has only tweeted three times. According to the New York Times, Hicks even has a personal thank you note from the president on her desk that reads: "Hopie-You're the greatest!" As Hicks once said of Trump, "He is brilliant with a great sense of humor, and an unbelievable ability to make people feel special and aspire to be more than even they thought possible".

Pushing aside claims from the co-hosts that President Trump is sexist, she pointed to the ascension of both herself and Hicks.

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.

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.

Prior to joining the political elite, Hicks worked as a Ford model as a teenager. Mr. Scaramucci was the third White House Communications Director to serve and leave the post, which had been vacant since late May.

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

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