Former White House communications director Hope Hicks reportedly pleaded with President Donald Trump for weeks to give her back her job that is currently held by Stephanie Grisham.

31-year-old Hicks was willing to leave her $1 million a year job as communications director at Murdoch's Fox Corporation, the parent company of Fox News. She reportedly said taking the job at Fox was "a mistake."

Trump, 73, reportedly declined to rehire one of his longest-serving advisers - and for good reason.

Hicks, pictured with Trump in 2018, abruptly left the White House amid rumors that Melania Trump, 49, objected to her presence around her powerful husband. It doesn't help matters that Hicks resembles a younger Melania.

To keep the peace in the White House's private residence, Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner stepped in and offered to re-hire Hicks himself. Kushner, 39, is married to Trump's eldest daughter, Ivanka Trump, 38. They share three children.

In a statement on Thursday, Kushner (pictured with Ivanka) said Hicks will be implementing the President's agenda. Her official title will be counselor to the president, and she will work closely with Kushner on Trump's reelection campaign.

Anti-Trump critic Andrew Laufer, a civil rights attorney, claims he knows the real reason Hicks is back in the White House.

"Was just told by one of my contacts that the actual reason why Hope Hicks is being brought back to the WH is due to Trump's declining mental state," he tweeted.

Another Twitter user echoed Laufer's statements by claiming Hicks was being brought back due to Trump's "worsening dementia."

Hicks is not a licensed therapist. Neither is Laufer.

Money isn't everything. Former White House aide Hope Hicks left a coveted $1 million/year job with Murdoch's Fox Corp. to return to her gig at the White House.

Hicks, 31, will return to the White House in the next few weeks, according to published reports.

Hicks' abrupt exit from the White House in 2018 raised eyebrows, amid reports that Melania Trump felt uneasy about the younger woman's presence around her powerful husband.

Hicks was one of Trump's original cabinet members from 2016 when he defeated Hillary Clinton in a landslide victory. Trump is very fond of Hicks and speaks very highly of her.

Hicks leaves behind her $1 million-a-year job as head of communications for Fox Corporation, the parent company of Fox News.

Washington Nationals fans expressed outraged after U.S. President Donald Trump embraced catcher Kurt Suzuki who wore a "Make America Great Again" baseball hat during a ceremony to welcome the 2019 World Series Champions at the White House in Washington, DC, on Nov. 4, 2019.

Hundreds of Washington Nationals fans gathered on the South Lawn of the White House on Monday to celebrate their team's World Series win over the Houston Astros in 7 games.

"I love you all, I love you all. Thank you," Suzuki said, as the crowd roared.

"I didn't know that was going to happen," Trump said after Suzuki put on the red cap that is considered a racist symbol of white nationalists.

One player, Sean Doolittle, declined the invite to attend the ceremony at the White House because his wife's parents are lesbians.

"There's a lot of things, policies that I disagree with, but at the end of the day, it has more to do with the divisive rhetoric and the enabling of conspiracy theories and widening the divide in this country," Doolittle told The Washington Post. A handful of other players also didn't attend.

President Trump was booed when he and his wife Melania Trump attended game 5 of the World Series in D.C. Those same fans took to Twitter to complain about young Suzuki's patriotism.

One fan tweeted: "Did Trump think Kurt Suzuki was someone else’s wife in this picture???"

Another Twitter user wrote: "People keep comparing that pic of Trump and Kurt Suzuki to Titanic, but his administration already hit the iceberg awhile ago."

Melania Trump has a good sense of humor. That's evident by the photo she authorized the White House photographer to tweet in celebration of her 48th birthday.

Mrs. Trump turned 48 on Friday, April 26. The White House tweeted this tongue-in-cheek photo of the First Lady showing the subtle dissonance between her and the White House Press Corps.
