Fox hires ex-Trump aide Hope Hicks

Share

Hicks was a key Donald Trump aide throughout his campaign and at the White House until she resigned earlier this year. Hicks, who left the White House on March 29, will be based in Los Angeles. A former Ralph Lauren model, she also modeled a dress from the Ivanka Trump line.

Trump gives the bulk of his television interviews to Fox News. Lachlan Murdoch, son of conservative media mogul Rupert Murdoch, will be its chairman and chief executive, The Hill reported. Additionally, Danny O'Brien, who now serves as a senior government affairs and policy executive at General Electric, will join Fox as an executive vice president and head of government relations. The other was Anna Perez, who served as press secretary to former First Lady Barbara Bush and as deputy assistant to President George W. Bush during his time in office.

"FOX won't find anyone smarter or more talented than Hope Hicks", Sanders wrote.

Numerous members of the public relations staffs at network TV news divisions have White House and Beltway positions on their resumes. Although he is famous for the term "fake news", Trump has continually supported Fox News and its reporting. Though Twitter users are assuming that she'll be doing PR for the network, Politico clarified, saying that she'll probably be focused on corporate communications as Fox and Disney work out exactly what their new merger entails.
