Hope Hicks Becomes Fourth White House Communications Director This Year

News & Politics

President Trump's longtime aide Hope Hicks has been named permanent White House communications director. Hicks is 28, making her the youngest person to hold the position since it was created in 1969.


Hicks has been with Trump since 2014, although she worked previously with the Trumps through a public relations firm. The staffer hasĀ earned a reputation for being "untouchable" due to the unusual level of support she consistently receives from Trump. He reportedly calls her by the nickname "Hopester," which he bestowed "affectionately."

Apparently, the key to Hicks' success with Trump comes from her acceptance that the president will say anything he wants and her refusal to publicly criticize him.

It remains to be seen how Hicks will handle the full weight of a job absolutely no one has survived under Trump for more than 88 consecutive days.
