I saw these two phrase and I was wondering which one is correct?

  1. I hope he tells me the truth
  2. I hope he will tell me the truth

They are both correct.

I hope he will tell me the truth.

"he will tell me" is future tense.

I hope he tells me the truth.

"he tells me" is present tense, however in the context of the phrase with "I hope" it implies the future.
