The White House confirmed to TPM that although Hicks will not be part of the communications team, she will be working closely with senior adviser Jared Kushner and political director Brian Jack "in a number of strategic areas".

Former Trump White House communications director Hope Hicks is expected to return to the White House in the coming weeks, leaving her position as chief communications officer at Fox Corporation after just 16 months. She joined up with the billionaire in the earliest moments of the presidential campaign and followed him into the White House.

The New York Times first reported the news. She will not return to the White House's communications shop.

Coronavirus confirmed in San Diego, Calif.
Americans returning from Wuhan undergo 14 days of quarantine meant to prevent them from spreading coronavirus in the community. Officials say she was isolated at the base for testing and sent back to a hospital after results came back.


In a statement, Kushner said, "There is no one more devoted to implementing President Trump's agenda than Hope Hicks..."

"Not only is she brilliant she is an unbelievable friend and will be a tremendous asset to the President and his team". Her testimony continued to dog her after she left the White House. During the closed-door hearing, Hicks answered questions related to her time working on Trump's 2016 campaign, but declined to comment on her work in the White House.

"She has always impressed me with her quiet confidence, loyalty and expertise, and I am beyond thrilled to welcome Hope back to the White House".
