President Donald Trump announced plans to appoint current senior adviser Hope Hicks to a new government role, the White House announced Tuesday.
Hicks will join the William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board, which aims to “improve intercultural relations.” Hicks’ appointment came among a long list of last-minute appointments Trump is making ahead of President-Elect Joe Biden’s inauguration in January. Other notable appointments include former Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell to the Holocaust Memorial Council and former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi to the board of trustees for the Kennedy Center.
Hicks returned to the White House in mid February, roughly two years after she resigned in 2018.
