These Are The Top Salaries for White House Employees
The President: $400,000
Despite inflation, the President’s annual salary has stayed static since 2001 at $400,000 per year, but that doesn’t tell the whole story. POTUS is also given a $50,000 expense allowance, a $19,000 entertainment account, and a $100,000 non-taxable travel account. Congressional Quarterly has tracked the President’s salary changes since its establishment in 1789, when it began at just $25,000 (which, ironically, would be $709,000 today — $309,000 higher than today’s Presidental pay-out). Before 2001, the last time POTUS’ salary was increased was in 1969, when it doubled from $100,000 to $200,000.
