Hope Hicks says that she will resign as White House communications director, per multiple news sources, including the New York Times. As reported:
Hope Hicks, the White House communications director and one of President Trump’s longest-serving advisers, said Wednesday that she plans to leave the White House in the coming weeks.
Ms. Hicks, 29, a former model who joined Mr. Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign without any experience in politics, became known as one of the few aides who understood his personality and style and could challenge the president to change his views.
The move from Hope Hicks isn’t entirely unexpected. As the Times pointed out:
Ms. Hicks had been considering leaving for several months. She told colleagues that she had accomplished what she felt she could with a job that made her one of the most powerful people in Washington, and that there would never be a perfect moment to leave, according to White House aides.
The White House aide has long been a confidante and behind-the-scenes power-broker for Donald Trump. The news of Hicks confirming her departure trended almost immediately on Twitter worldwide.
It follows upon speculation about why she was recently captured with a secretive grin coming out of an intelligence briefing where she testified for eight hours.
