White House Communications Director quits: What's next for President Trump?
In another major setback to Trump administration, the White House Communications Director Hope Hicks has resigned from her post.

Hicks, who was Trump's longest-serving advisers earlier used to worked in Donald Trump's organisation before he became the President of the United States. She also worked with him during the election campaign, serving as his press secretary.

Whether her resignation is linked to her testimony or not is still not clear. In her testimony to the House Intelligence Committee, Hicks had reportedly admitted that she told "white lies" for President Trump, according to CNN.

Hicks is the 4th person who has served as communications head, Hicks followed Anthony Scaramucci, Sean Spicer and Mike Dubke, all of whom had to leave.

In a statement regarding the issue, the United States President Donald Trump issued a statement sating that Hicks has done great work for the last three years.

"She is as smart and thoughtful as they come, a truly great person," the statement added. Not ruling away the possibilities of Hicks and Trump working together again, the statement added, "I am sure we will work together again in the future."

Whether her exit is related to the ongoing investigation or not is not clear but her escaping the heat of the investigations seems unlikely. The investigation is regarding allegations of Russia meddling in the 2016 United States general elections. It has been reported that Hicks had been considering quitting the job from quite some time.

The attrition rate in top posts in the White House has been massive but the impact of Hicks' exit especially in context of the ongoing investigation is yet to be seen.
