These Are The Top Salaries for White House Employees
Assistant to the President and Senior Counselor: $183,000
Three were appointed, but only one remains. When Trump took office in 2017, Kellyanne Conway, Steve Bannon, and Johnny DeStefano were given the title of Counselor to the President (which has nothing to do with being White House Counsel). Created during Richard Nixon‘s administration, not all presidents choose to appoint counselors, such as Jimmy Carter, and many leave the position vacant for multiple years before deciding to bring counselors onboard. Kellyanne was the only counselor present in the June 2019 report, earning a White House salary of $183,000 per year.
