Hope Hicks, one of President Trump's closest aides since before the start of the billionaire businessman's quest for the presidency, has officially been tapped as White House communications director, officials confirmed Tuesday.
Hicks had been named to the post on an interim basis in August, when Anthony Scaramucci left the job after his brief and tumultuous tenure.
Hicks, 28, is an ardent loyalist to the president who was one of the first staffers on the Trump campaign. She also worked for The Trump Organization where she worked on several ventures including projects for Ivanka Trump, senior White House adviser and Trump’s daughter.
"[Hicks] has the credibility, leadership and respect from everyone in the West Wing. And in a very short order has helped the communications operation enormously," a senior White House official told Fox News.
