A source with knowledge of Hicks’ relationship with President Trump has described her as one of his most trusted aides.

The communications director position, which manages White House messaging, was initially held by veteran Republican political operative Mike Dubke. Following Dubke’s resignation in May, the brash Anthony Scaramucci took the role for all of ten days.

The Daily Caller News Foundation was the first to report that Hicks would become communications director.
