The Washington Post found in 2014 that women in President Barack Obama's White House Office made less than men, but at an 88-cents-on-the-dollar rate, which is higher than what women earn in the Trump's administration.

CNN's analysis was based on the latest White House annual report to Congress, which discloses the salaries of all White House personnel.

One point to consider is whether the White House might work a bit more effectively if it had, say, a few more assistants for legislative affairs attempting to coordinate with Capitol Hill.

A White House staff salary document shows that 22 of Trump's aides, including some of the best-known to the public, are earning $179,700.

But then, Ivanka is not paid a White House salary, nor is her husband, and her father is allegedly donating his pay, so why would she care?

I've beaten him in the races I've done so far, but that doesn't count for anything once you get to July 1, that's another level. Asked about being described as the favourite by Froome and Team Sky, Porte replied: "It's just one of the games they play".

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".

The average man earned $104,000 (£80,000) while the average women earned $83,500.

Meanwhile, some of Mr Trump's lowest paid officials have senior roles, including Gary Cohn, the President's chief economic advisor and former Goldman Sachs president, and Chris Liddell, the White House's director of strategic initiatives and ex-General Motors and Microsoft executive.

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.

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