From Fox News:
Hope Hicks, the 28-year-old press aide who has worked with President Trump since before the campaign, has been named interim White House communications director.
A senior White House source confirmed to Fox News that Hicks will fill the role until the White House finds a permanent replacement.
A White House official also said in a brief statement that she “will work with White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders and all of the communications team” as interim director. “We will make an announcement on a permanent communications director at the appropriate time,” the official said.
