You've probably never heard of Hope Hicks. She's only 28 years old, has no political experience whatsoever, and got a degree in English from Southern Methodist University. Also, she is among the highest paid aides to Donald Trump, serving as Assistant to the President and Director of Strategic Communications in the White House.
Hicks fell into her current position through a job at the Trump organization before the campaign. Since becoming a part of President Trump's team, she has weathered multiple staff changes, always asserting herself as a valuable member of Trump's inner circle - all without making a name for herself as one of the jostling in-fighters that people picture within the current administration. Trump says Hicks has been with him "from the beginning."
