Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump Receive $0 From White House Positions

The average salary of a male White House staffer is almost $104,000, while their female counterparts make an average of $83,000, according to a CNN analysis of the White House's annual report to Congress.

The gender pay difference nationally is 82 cents for women against every dollar for men and as of 2015, federal government jobs' pay gap was 11 percent, according to a CNN look at an Office of Personnel Management report. Six of the top earners - those making the maximum salary of $179,700 - are women.

Donald Trump's now-infamous WWE tweet could be a campaign run by the White House in an attempt to break the United States media, according to an worldwide politics professor. We must work to close the gender pay gap!

Two of Trump's key advisors, Gary Cohn and Christopher Liddell, are paid reduced salaries of $30,000, the lowest salaries among all White House staff. In April, equal-pay advocates criticized the president for signing an executive order that rolled back a regulation meant to protect women's ability to earn the same as men.

US President Donald Trump's right-hand Kiwi is not being paid handsomely for his trouble.

On Thursday, White House deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders falsely insisted that Trump "in no way, form or fashion has ever promoted or encouraged violence".

Trump also said he'll donate his annual salary to the Department of Interior so that it could work on repairs and other needs at military cemeteries. Likewise, Kushner is also receiving a salary of $0.00 for his position as "assistant to the president and senior advisor".

Mr Trump appears to be maintaining a smaller staff size compared to his predecessor Mr Obama.
