Hope Hicks, the White House director of strategic communications, is stepping into the role of White House communications director on an interim basis.

Hicks, a longtime aide of President Trump, is the fourth person to hold the job since January.

Anthony Scaramucci was the last person to hold the top communications job. He was fired 10 days after replacing former White House press secretary Sean Spicer in the role.

"We will make an announcement on a permanent communications director at the appropriate time," a White House official said.

Hicks did not respond to the Washington Examiner's request for comment.
