She's the latest in a line of White House communications directors who resigned after short tenures, but she's also one of Trump's closest aides.
Hicks has been part of Trump's inner circle throughout his campaign and his time as president.
Her resignation comes the day after she testified for special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election, where she reportedly did not answer some questions and confessed to telling “white lies” for the president. Hicks, however, reportedly said she did not lie about anything material to the investigation.
