These Are The Top Salaries for White House Employees
Special Assistant to the President and Director of Oval Office Operations: $145,000
The Director of Oval Office Operations and Special Assistant to the President makes $145,000 per year if they can stay in the position for that long. Madeleine Westerhout was known as one of Trump’s chief gatekeepers until she was ousted in August 2019. At only 28 years old, Madeleine was one of the highest-paid White House staffers and outlasted three chiefs of staff during her two-and-a-half years in the position. CNN reported that her unexpected absence came after an off-the-record dinner with reporters.
