Hope Hicks to Serve as Trump's Communications Director on Permanent Basis

Anthony Scaramucci served as White House communications director for a whopping 10 days

The longtime Trump political aide had already been working as the interim communications director following Anthony Scaramucci's firing in July.

She handled several projects at the Trump organization including Ivanka Trump's fashion line.

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

When Trump visited Mar-a-Lago a year ago, Hicks' family traveled to visit as well, The New York Times reports. She will be exactly what Trump looks for in staff: soldiers who follow orders. Bloomberg was first to note Trump had made Hicks' status permanent.

Her relationship with the Trump family began while she was an employee of Hiltzik Strategies, a NY public relations firm, where she worked on projects for Ivanka Trump, the President's eldest daughter.

The White House has now named its third difference communications director in just eight months. She said, "Absolutely nothing,"' Trump said.

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

Prior to joining Mr Trump's campaign team, Ms Hicks had no experience working in politics. Mike Dubke, who resigned in May, resigned after three months on the job.

Beyond her literary work, Hicks also posed for campaigns for Ralph Lauren and Naturalizer shoes, according to Vogue. But despite the ostensibly temporary nature of her initial appointment, no active search for another communications director had been conducted as of late August.
