Kellyanne Conway is playing a more active role in White House communications strategy, Politico reported.
Conway, a counselor to President Donald Trump, is temporarily taking on the role that was vacated when Hope Hicks exited the job in March, the report said.
Multiple sources said that Conway made the announcement at a retreat for the White House communications department at a federal building near the White House last week, Politico reported.
The senior adviser always has taken a lead role in reviewing talking points because of her frequent TV appearances in support of Trump’s administration, the report said.
"What the president would direct Hope (Hicks) to do with the press — she’ll have a bigger hand in that," said one White House official, Politico reported.
Conway said on April 27 that Trump could begin appearing monthly on the Fox News program "Fox & Friends."
"The president had a great time bringing his case directly to the American people," Conway said.
