Top Trump aide said the two words no one ever thought they would hear

White House Communications Director Hope Hicks has been with Trump longer than any aide.

She was the first hire on his Presidential campaign.

And after testifying behind closed doors about the Russia probe, she said the two words no one ever thought they would hear.

The 29 year-old Hicks announced her resignation late in the afternoon on Wednesday.

It took Washington by surprise.


And it came one day after she delivered closed door testimony to the House Intelligence Committee for their Russia investigation.

The Hill reports:

“Hope Hicks on Wednesday resigned from her post as White House communications director.

“There are no words to adequately express my gratitude to President Trump,” she said in a statement. “I wish the president and his administration the very best as he continues to lead our country.”

The New York Times first reported that Hicks told colleagues she had been considering resigning for months, and made her announcement internally on Wednesday.

President Trump said that Hicks is “a truly great person.”

“Hope is outstanding and has done great work for the last three years,” the president said. “She is as smart and thoughtful as they come, a truly great person. I will miss having her by my side but when she approached me about pursuing other opportunities, I totally understood. I am sure we will work together again in the future.”

Hicks took over the job of Communications Director last summer after former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer left the administration.

The media will be sure to try and play this up into a major scandal.

And coming off her testimony about Russia, they will try to invent any angle to present this resignation as a sign the investigation is creeping ever closer to the President.



There is no indication that is true.

The worst that was leaked about her testimony was that she admitted to sometimes telling white lies for the President.

But she adamantly denied lying about anything Russia related.

  1. Sure are a lot of nasty minded people on this site. Just because a women is beautiful
    doesn’t mean something going on.
    Just like those who are miss interpeting trump saying take the guns first and paper work 2nd. He was talking about those who were waving a gun and making threats ,you than take away the gun and file the paper work 2nd. (like probable cause) Even Tucker was to quick to jump to conclusions. Go Trump

  2. She is a smart woman who did a fantastic job for the POTUS.
    Pulled in a bogus investigation that can’t see the DNC/Clinton hands on the wall. She may have been fed up with the FAKE NEWS, and threw in the towel.
    How much fake news will come before those networks are banned from the White House and traveling with the POTUS.
    Mueller, how did it feel carrying 5grams of high grade uranium to Moscow prior to the sale of uranium.
    What a dark web is being pulled apart.

  3. You have to wonder after seeing all the people who have come and gone through administration in the past year What is wrong with this administration? Trump said before the election that he had “Such a Great Staff You would not believe how great of a staff he has.” Well he was right about that, We Don’t believe his “almost staff.” It appears that when people come into Trump’s circle, they quickly depart for one reason or another. Don’t forget that Trump has a very long line of vacant staff openings that he has not even had people nominated for yet.

    • There is one thing that you forget. 3 years in a high energy work environment can burn you out. She is only 29, unmarried, and has had one of the highest jobs in the US. I’m sure she has had offers that many would jump at.

      • &&& >That Requires< a Tremendous Amount of 'Presence' on Many
        Levels. 'the Wheat' Will Always be separated from 'the Chaff' so to speak. N0 excuses. guess it's 'time' for her 'to jump'. & that's ok.

    • 1.) Working on a campaign is a lot different than serving in a position in the Whitehouse.

      2.) Robert Mueller has forced everyone that worked on the campaign and in the Whitehouse to spend thousands of dollars on lawyers, to advise them on their testimony to the Special Counsel, besides taking a lot of time away from their principal duties.

      3.) The MSM’s lies about them, and having to come out and correct the press, also takes away time from their primary duties, and in some cases has smeared them.

      4.) President Trump has already said his administration would not be filling positions that were created in the Obama Administration.

      5.) The Democrats in the Senate (under Chuck Schumer), have delayed and obstructed President Trump’s and his Cabinet’s Nominees. Several that were nominated by the Committees, are held up for vote in the Senate by Mitch McConnell, while he worked on important legislation.

      6.) The people in the FBI, that are carryovers from Obama’s administration, are delaying background checks for their necessary Security Clearances, in order to do their jobs. Initially they were held up by James Comey, and then by Assist. McCabe. It’s to be hoped Chris Wray is now pushing Agents to get them approved soon. Everyone working in the Whitehouse (30 people)are still working based off Temporary Security Clearances.

      The people hired by Obama, that are carryovers, are answering the Democrat Leadership’s calls to resist doing anything that benefits President Trump and his Administration. No one has ever seen this amount of obstruction from a Political Party in our history. But of course it is coming from Obama, Clintons, and George Soros too, through to Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, and even the Black Caucus Congressional Members like Maxine Waters and Al Green in their constant calls to Impeach President Trump. Along with their saying he is not their President and not attending his Presidential Inauguration and first State of the Union speech.

  4. Hope Hicks deserves nothing less than a drop-kick…NOW…not a few weeks from now. Long as she hangs, more speculation and inane press coverage ad nauseum. Announces her resignation right on the heels of her exposed liaison with Porter…no better than FBI Strzok and Page…and the day AFTER her little “white lies” testimony. DC has enough snarky smarm.

  5. When Hope Hicks was publicly unveiled as the new Communications Director? Here we GO! Smelt o’ SMELT! Deliberately upstaged with FLAUNT our FLOTUS during the Asia trip. CLONED herself after Melania…same hair, same sunglasses, same stilettos, same EVERYTHING…’cept for her scene-stealing girly tuxedo to Melania’s flowing red gown. And THEN the revelations of her inter-office romance with shamed Rob Porter. Opening doors to sexual misconduct in the workplace…when the Ethics Committee was settling claims for members of Congress from a ‘hush’ pot of taxpayer dollars. And her admitted “white lies” in closed-door testimony raising even MORE suspect shenanigans. Uh-huh. SMELT! May be intelligent but not street-smart. Just another pretty face. Lucky she SAVED face with no Secret Service escort out the porte cochere portico!

    • i remember the ‘girly tuxedo’> haha haaa . oh so ‘proper’? except for ‘thigh high’ skirty skirts for ‘the 9 hr’ Hearing. Please – give me a break. Am well aware of her ‘duties’ w/ ivank co. Before WH. & i’ll
      SayIT – djt ‘miss’ her short skirty skirts. Sic.
