February 14, 2020 1:22 pm
Hope Hicks, one of US President Donald Trump’s most trusted and longest-serving aides, is returning to the White House.
This as the president works to surround himself with loyalists while his reelection campaign moves into high gear.
Hicks, a former White House communications director, who was one of Trump’s original 2016 campaign staffers, is expected to serve as counsellor to the president.
She will be working with presidential son-in-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.
