Hicks left the White House in 2018 and later began working for the Fox Corporation, albeit not as an on air personality. Many were surprised at Hicks’ original appointment to the administration as she was widely considered unqualified.
Kusher, who is married to Trump’s daughter Ivanka, has been given a broad portfolio of issues and most recently unveiled a ‘deal of the century’ Middle East Peace Plan that was instantly rejected by the Palestinians and elsewhere condemned as a kind of Apartheid.
