Baltimore Sun - - NATION & WORLD -

WASH­ING­TON — Hope Hicks, one of Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s most trusted and longest­serv­ing aides, is re­turn­ing to the White House as the pres­i­dent works to sur­round him­self with loy­al­ists as his re­elec­tion cam­paign ramps up.

Hicks, a for­mer White House com­mu­ni­ca­tions di­rec­tor who was one of Trump’s orig­i­nal 2016 cam­paign staffers, is ex­pected to serve as coun­selor to the pres­i­dent, work­ing with pres­i­den­tial sonin-law and se­nior ad­viser Jared Kush­ner, ac­cord­ing to a per­son fa­mil­iar with the sit­u­a­tion who spoke on con­di­tion of anonymity be­fore the an­nounce­ment had been made pub­lic.

She left the White House in 2018 and moved to Cal­i­for­nia to work as a com­mu­ni­ca­tions ex­ec­u­tive at the Fox Corp., though she and Trump stayed in touch.
