Former communications director Hope Hicks was spotted boarding Air Force One on Saturday, months after her resignation.
President Donald Trump is heading to Delaware, Ohio this afternoon to hold a rally, his third in just a week.
Bloomberg’s Margaret Talev was among the first to note Hicks’ presence at the Morristown airport in New Jersey prior to departure.

It also appeared in the press travel pool report where it was also noted White House press secretary Sarah Sanders was in attendance.
It is unclear why Hicks was with Trump on his way to Ohio. However, it is not unusual for Trump to give rides to his former staffers and keep them close at hand.
In fact, fired campaign manager Corey Lewandowski has been spotted boarding Air Force One more than once to accompany Trump despite the fact he does not hold an official role in the administration.
