Trump was reportedly not happy with Hicks after the House Intelligence Committee meeting. The New York Post reports a source said Trump was quite angry and wanted to know “how she could be that stupid” to admit she tells lies for the president.

During the meeting, Hicks admitted to sometimes telling “white lies” for Trump. However, she claims she didn’t lie about anything related to the Russia investigation, reports CNN. Perhaps Hicks was given the opportunity to resign before being fired. Considering her close relationship with Trump, it’s a possibility.
