Men outnumber women by more than 2-to-1 among top aides to President Trump so far, according to the White House and an analysis by USA TODAY.
If that ratio holds as the president finishes filling out his staff, the percentage of women in the West Wing would be smaller than at least five of the last six presidential terms, the analysis shows.
The percentage of women in top White House jobs in previous administrations has ranged from 28% under George W. Bush in 2008 to 52% under Bill Clinton in 2000, the analysis of staff listings dating back to 1996 found.
The Trump administration is just over four weeks old, but his transition and White House have announced the appointments of more than 70 top staffers. USA TODAY's analysis of White House news releases about staff hires shows that 23% are women.
The actual percentage of women among top aides is 31%, according to the White House. But officials would not release the names or titles of the hires or comment on the record about what makes up that figure.
Most of the top roles are filled by men, including Trump's chief strategist and senior advisers for policy and homeland security, as well as the heads of the Domestic Policy, National Economic and National Trade councils. The director of legislative affairs and White House counsel also are men.
