Hope is Lost. So Who’s Next?

The era of the It Girl White House comes to an end.

Hope Hicks—a longtime aide to President Donald Trump and his daughter Ivanka, who stepped into the role of White House…

Ms. Hicks, 29, a former model who joined Mr. Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign without any experience in politics, became known as one of the few aides who understood his personality and style and could challenge the president to change his views.

Ms. Hicks had been considering leaving for several months. She told colleagues that she had accomplished what she felt she could with a job that made her one of the most powerful people in Washington, and that there would never be a perfect moment to leave, according to White House aides.
