washington - Donald Trump said about Hope Hicks that at the start of his campaign, she had 'just as much political experience as a cup of coffee.' But after the countless redundancies in the White House, Hicks is still there and she is of great importance.
Hope, who previously worked for Trumps daughter Ivanka, was added to Team Trump at the kick-off of the campaign. When Trump asked her, she first thought that the real estate typeface meant the PR campaign for a new hotel.
During the hearing of Trumps son Donald Jr. Last week it became clear that her power reaches further than expected. For example, during his hearing, junior admitted that he first contacted the 29-year-old communication director, after he had been informed that he had agreed with a Russian lawyer.
The president blindly trusts the young Hope. Corey Lewandowski, also from the beginning of the campaign, reminisces in his new book about that hectic time in which he, Trump and Hope, started working as pioneers.
Thus he remembers the conversation with Trump immediately after the victory, in which the president looks back on the lack of political experience of Hicks. 'But she does have the looks,' Lewandowski replied. 'That always helps,' Trump replied.
