WASHINGTON, D.C – As an aide to the President and WH Communications Director, Hope Hicks was very close to President Trump. Hicks shocked the world on Wednesday after announcing her intentions to resign from her post at the WH.
Her resignation comes after testifying before the House Intelligence Committee, where she admitted that she has told ‘white lies’ throughout the course of her duties. She began contemplating resignation after the scandal surrounding former aide Rob Porter, her ex-boyfriend.
This could spell trouble for the White House as Trump will no longer have his closest aides by his side. Hicks was also an aide to Trump at his company before he won the election.
