DETROIT (WWJ) – According to multiple reports on Tuesday, President Donald Trump has named a third Communications Director.
NBC News, NPR and other news outlets say longtime Trump aid Hope Hicks (who made Forbes’ 30 Under 30 list for 2017) will fill the spot, left open since Anthony Scaramucci was let go after an extremely short stint in the position in July.
Hicks, 28, previously served as director of strategic communications for the Trump administration and has been named among those who have the president’s ear.
She previously served as the press secretary for Trump’s 2016 campaign, as well as the national press secretary for his presidential transition team, and had been named interim White House communications director in August.
Trump’s first communications director was Mike Dubke. The president is also on his second press secretary, Sarah Sanders, who replaced Sean Spicer.
