Hope Hicks, long considered one of President Donald Trump’s most trusted advisers, is resigning her job as White House communications director, several outlets confirmed Wednesday.
“Hope is outstanding and has done great work for the last three years,” Trump said in a statement to The New York Times. “She is as smart and thoughtful as they come, a truly great person. I will miss having her by my side but when she approached me about pursuing other opportunities, I totally understood. I am sure we will work together again in the future.”
Hicks is expected to finish out her job in the next few weeks. Her resignation comes one day after her eight-hour testimony before the House Intelligence Committee, which is investigating Russia’s meddling in the 2016 presidential election.
According to reports, Hicks admitted during her testimony that Trump sometimes required her to tell “white lies.”
Does anyone have a count on how many people in the Chaos administration have been fired, resigned, or been indicted? Or had his security clearance downgraded?
For eight years the NRA and the GOP warned their members that President Obama was coming for their guns. President Obama never, never, never uttered the words Trump did today. Where are the howls from the NRA and the GOP bellowing that TRUMP IS COMING TO GET YOUR GUNS WITHOUT DUE PROCESS IF YOU'RE MENTALLY ILL! The NRA has been against this because they've said it isn't fair or constitutional to people who have mental illnesses to deprive them of their 2nd Amendment rights.
TRUMP WANTS TO TAKE YOUR GUNS AWAY (IF YOU'RE MENTALLY ILL)!
