While President Donald Trump's appearance at a campaign rally in Ohio drew crowds on Saturday, former White House communications director Hope Hicks was also at the center of attention after being spotted traveling with Trump aboard Air Force One.
Hicks, who resigned as White House communications director in February, reportedly planned to spend her weekend at one of Trump's golf courses in New Jersey with first daughter Ivanka Trump and Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner, according to sources cited in a Vanity Fair report published on Monday .
But after Trump found out Hicks was in town, he asked her to join him at the rally in Lewis Center, Ohio, sources reportedly told Vanity Fair's Emily Jane Fox.
Aboard Air Force One, Hicks talked off-the-record to reporters and even jokingly took suggestions about her career prospects.
Hicks also said that if the timing was right, she would consider becoming Trump's chief of staff, a position currently held by John Kelly. Kelly is expected to stay on board until 2020, and reportedly turned down Trump's request to stay for a possible second term.
