The rumors became official Tuesday when White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told the press that Hope Hicks is going to be the new communications director.

Hicks, 28, previously served as director of strategic communications for the Trump administration and has been named among those who have the president's ear.

Hicks was one of Trump's originals, when his campaign was just a rag tag team of aides.

Earlier this year, Hicks joined Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump for Shabbat dinner at their Kalorama mansion, Politico reports.

While Mr Trump has already fired or dismissed several of his aides during the first leg of his administration, Ms Hicks has been labelled by the media as "untouchable".

According to a 2016 New York Times profile-which called her "arguably the least credentialed press secretary in the modern history of presidential politics"-Hicks actually turned down the first offer to work for the Trump campaign".

Trump himself eventually succeeded in getting her to change her mind.

The role of White House Communications Director has been a tough one too fill since Trump was elected last November.

Trump's first communications director was Mike Dubke.

Prior to joining the political elite, Hicks worked as a Ford model as a teenager. Her work area at the White House is found recently outside the Oval Office, and a Bloomberg journalist said she intends to stay at that physical work area.
