Hope Hicks, the press adviser of Donald Trump, is one of the most important parts of the 2016 Presidential Election campaign. Reportedly, while only a few women in Trump’s campaign are paid equal to men, Hope Hicks is an exception.
Her earnings exceed the pay of many Trump campaigners. She was previously a model.
How much does Hope Hicks make?
According to unofficial reports, Hope makes a whopping salary of $92,000 a year just from the Trump Presidential Campaign. Looking at this amazing pay, she might be projected to be worth at least a couple of million dollars. However, the actual figure isn’t available to the media.
Alongside, there are a few other Trump campaigners such as Kellyanne Conway and Steve Bannon who earn relatively higher than anyone else – probably because they hold higher posts and responsibilities. Kellyanne reportedly was paid more than $130, 000 back in August. However, as suggested by the reporters, Conway’s pollster firm made around $1.9 million from the whole campaign.
What does Hope actually do for Trump?
Hope Hicks is regarded as the mystery right-hand woman behind Trump’s win. We know that she looks after media responses to Donald Trump’s campaign. However, there is much more to it.

Graduating from Southern Methodist University, Dallas, Hope started working in the Hiltzik Strategies in 2012. After that, she entered The Trump Organisation and handled Trump resorts and Ivanka’s fashion line. In August 2014, Hicks ventured into politics via Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. Even though she chose to leave after being asked if she wanted to, the President-elect Donald Trump persuaded her to stay.
One of the most important part Hicks does a political adviser is tweeting for Trump. She finds the right dictation and ideas and asks a helper to tweet on behalf of Trump. However, don’t be confused, Donald Trump is the one who primarily suggests what to tweet. Likewise, after Corey Lewandowski was caught up in a case of assaulting a reporter, Hope had a job to present defensive arguments against it.
Hope Hicks role becomes even more important when it comes to Trump’s meetings. The President-elect gets around 250 visit requests every day and Hope Hicks is the person who decides who to meet and who not to, depending on the benefits and agendas of the campaign. Interestingly, she is supposed to ban journalists Trump doesn’t like.

Although she is managing such huge responsibilities, Hope was never a political campaigner. Reportedly, she was once a model as well. Hope, in an interview with Marie Claire, said, “I was home for Easter, reading an article from when I was 11 or 12, talking about how my career as a model had taken off. It said, ‘If modeling doesn’t work out for you, what would you do?’ And I said, ‘Well, I’m not really sure, but I’m interested in politics.”
