New details have just come to light on what President Trump makes his White House Communications Director, Hope Hicks, do to him.
At age 29, she is a former model and was the communication’s director of Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign, who also did unlisted work as an employee of The Trump Organization.
According to the Washington Post, Trump has been making her do duties on top of her official role as strategic director of Trump’s White House, which fall completely outside the professional bounds of her job description.
One of the things he makes her do is steam clean his pants (while he is wearing them).
Per the Post,:
One of Hicks’s jobs was to make sure that Trump’s suits were pressed when they flew on his plane.
“ ‘Get the machine!’ ” Trump would yell, according to the book. “And Hope would take out the steamer and start steaming Mr. Trump’s suit, while he was wearing it! She’d steam the jacket first and then sit in a chair in front of him and steam his pants.”
One day, when Hicks forgot the steamer, Trump became angry.
“G–dammit, Hope! How the hell could you forget the machine?”
The authors wrote, “It was a mistake she would never make again.”
This and other revelations from Trump’s former campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, and David Bossie, another top aide, give people a more in-depth look at what it really means to work for the world’s most powerful person. They released a new book detailing these events, saying there were “moments where they wanted to parachute off Trump Force One.”
Trump didn’t just belittle people, though, by making them steam clean his pants. He also yelled at the senior most people who worked for him, often going on long rants:
“Did you say I shouldn’t be on TV on Sunday? I’ll go on TV anytime I g–dam f—ing want and you won’t say another f—ing word about me!” Trump yelled at Manafort, according to Lewandowski. “Tone it down? I wanna turn it up! . . . You’re a political pro? Let me tell you something. I’m a pro at life. I’ve been around a time or two. I know guys like you, with your hair and skin . . .”
“Sooner or later, everybody who works for Donald Trump will see a side of him that makes you wonder why you took a job with him in the first place,” the authors wrote. “His wrath is never intended as any personal offense, but sometimes it can be hard not to take it that way. The mode that he switches into when things aren’t going his way can feel like an all-out assault; it’d break most hardened men and women into little pieces.”
