White House Released Its Staff Salaries. The Amount of Money Jared and Ivanka Make Is Stunning


The White House released the salaries of its staffers Friday in accordance with an annual requirement that it do so. The report contained many interesting data points about White House staff.

According to Politico:

Donald Trump’s White House is stocked with 25 staffers who hold the title of “assistant to the president,” according to a disclosure released Friday, which also revealed that nearly two dozen aides all earn an annual salary of roughly $180,000.

The White House posted the salaries of its executive office staff in a 16-page document detailing the earnings of nearly 400 individuals — 18 are “detailees,” a distinction for people who were pulled from other agencies or organizations to temporarily serve in a White House role. The document was also shared with Congress, an annual requirement of administrations since 1995.

However, the salary numbers also reveal something about the president’s closest advisers, Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump. Much has been made of the role that the two play in the Trump orbit.

There have been heavy critiques of the personal gain “senior advisers” Jared and Ivanka may be realizing as members of the president’s inner circle. So many will be stunned to find out that the salaries drawn by the president’s son-in-law and daughter are: $0.00.

The fact that the two are making no money from their positions is not necessarily new, but it took some by surprise. However, according to previous reports, Ivanka and Jared have complied fully with ethics laws, divesting from their businesses.

Under the new rules, Trump has divested her common stock, tech investments, investment funds — and they will all appear on Kushner’s 278 financial disclosure form, required by all Cabinet nominees. Bloomberg News reported on Monday afternoon that Trump and Kushner sold as much as $36.7 million in assets to comply with federal ethics rules, according to the Office of Government Ethics.

So if you see Ivanka Trump or Jared Kushner on the street, buy ’em a drink.


  1. These people do so much for this country. And the damn liberals are so blind. Thank you TRUMPS for helping this country. I am sorry for the bad things some people say but most of America loves you!

  2. Why are liberals trying to make Trump and family poor? Do they think he will resign if they keep finding ways to make him sell or at least get rid of all his assets? They have tried every thing else and it has not worked, if they spent as much time doing their jobs instead of trying to get him out of office think how much of our business would get done.

  3. What I dislike and distrust about these stories is that there is never any comparison to the previous administration. So Trumps aides earn $180,000. How do we know what Obama’s aides earned. What if they were paid $250,000. I think it is fair to make a distinction about this instead of just throwing out information which may or may not even be true?
