Hope Hicks Returning to White House to Work Closely With Kushner, Official Says
Hope Hicks, one of President Donald Trumps longtime aides and his former communications director, will be returning to the White House, an official confirmed to The Epoch Times.
In her new role, Hicks will serve as counselor to the president, according to reports, and would also be working with the presidents son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner. The administration hasnt publicly announced the position yet, as of this writing.
“Hope wont be part of the communications department,” a White House official told The Epoch Times. “She will be working closely with Jared Kushner and [Deputy Assistant to the President and Director of Political Affairs] Brian Jack in a number of strategic areas.”
The official didnt elaborate further on the specifics of the position Hicks would be serving in. It has been two years since she last worked at the White House.
An administration official told Reuters that Hicks will return to the White House next month.
Hicks was Trumps longest-serving aide, having worked for him for three years. She had served as press secretary and communications adviser to the Trump campaign throughout the 2016 presidential election and left her job as White House communications director in February 2018.
She first became Trumps communications director in the summer of 2017 following the departure of Anthony Scaramucci, who served in the position for ten days. Scaramucci was fired by incoming White House Chief of Staff Gen. John Kelly.
After departing the White House, Hicks worked at Fox Corporation as executive vice president and chief communications officer. According to her biography, she acted as the companys “chief spokesperson and leads all communications initiatives.”
“There is no one more devoted to implementing President Trumps agenda than Hope Hicks,” Kushner said. “We are excited to have her back on the team.”
