Capitol Report: White House: Where the top economic adviser is paid $30,000 and the chief calligrapher pulls down $102K


The Trump White House complied Friday with a requirement that staff salaries be reported to Congress annually, and while the listed salaries largely follow established bureaucratic contours, with, for example, 22 of the 377 employees maxing out at a top-tier $179,700 per annum, it was also learned that Goldman Sachs alumnus Gary Cohn, director of the National Economic Council, is pulling down just $30,000 and confirmed that first daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, are taking no pay for their West Wing roles.

That trio, of course, is not alone in accepting salaries that are significantly below what they could expect to be paid in the private sector. In contrast, the director of presidential gifts is being paid $62,000 a year; the chief calligrapher, $102,212.00; the director of White House internship and volunteer programs, $89,000; and the director of correspondence with students and children, $47,000.

On the $179,700 plateau, the maximum for executive-branch staff, are such household names as Stephen Bannon, chief strategist and senior counselor to President Trump; senior adviser Stephen Miller; senior counselor Kellyanne Conway; and Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, listed as Reinhold R. Priebus.

Press secretary Sean Spicer, who additionally carries the title assistant to the president, joins the group on that pay tier, while his deputy, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, is being paid $165,000 a year.

Sebastian Gorka, whom it was widely reported was on his way out over allegations of anti-Semitism and other issues in late April, remains on staff per the Friday document. By May, he reportedly was calling reports of his exit “very fake news.” He draws a salary of $155,000 as deputy assistant to the president and strategist.

Andrew Giuliani, son of former New York mayor and Trump presidential campaign insider Rudolph Giuliani, is being paid $77,000 as an associate director, in, according to a New York Post report, the Office of Public Liaison and Intergovernmental Affairs.

The president’s salary is set at $400,000. Trump, Spicer reported at an April briefing, donated his first-quarter salary to the National Park Service.
