Hope Hicks: Top Trump aide returning to White House


One of US President Donald Trump’s longest-serving aides, Hope Hicks, will return to the White House nearly two years after she resigned.

The ex-White House communications director is expected to be counsellor to the president and report to Mr Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner.

The 31-year-old former model has worked for Fox Corporation since leaving the White House two years ago.

Ex-Trump aides Sean Spicer and Reince Priebus are also being given new roles.

Ms Hicks was repeatedly questioned by Justice Department Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s during his investigation into Mr Trump, as well as congressional investigators.

She resigned her post in February 2018, one day after she testified to Congress that she occasionally told white lies on Mr Trump’s behalf.
