Hope Hicks Named Trump White House Communications Director

Hope Hicks, Interim White House Communications Director, to Keep Job on Permanent Basis

Hope Hicks is officially the new White House Communications Director.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told NBC News of the move Tuesday.

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.

Hicks was Trump's director of strategic communications, she also served as his press secretary at the start of the presidential campaign.

She had been working for the first daughter, doing public relations for Ivanka Trump's brand, when the businessman brought her in to handle press requests for his young presidential campaign. Bloomberg was first to note Trump had made Hicks' status permanent.

The White House has struggled to fill the communications director position ever since Trump was elected in November.

Hicks' relationship with Trump began while she was working for Hiltzik Strategies, a NY public relations firm founded by Matthew Hiltzik, a longtime Hillary Clinton supporter.

'I said, "What do you know about politics?"

While Mr Trump has already fired or dismissed several of his aides during the first leg of his administration, Ms Hicks has been labelled by the media as "untouchable".

Here's how Vogue note that Hicks "joined" the campaign. She has served as the interim communications director since Anthony Scaramucci was removed after serving the role for less than two weeks.

She becomes Trump's third full-time communications director with his administration less than eight months old.
