Every year, the White House is required to release the salary of every White House employee. On Friday, the Trump Administration released the salaries of current White House personnel.

The highest-paid members of President Trump's team make $179,700. The 22 staffers who take home this top salary include Chief Strategist Stephen K. Bannon, Senior Counselor Kellyanne Conway and Director of Communications Omarosa Manigault. Just six of the top 22 highest-paid White House employees are women.

In 2016, the highest-paid White House employees, including Susan E. Rice and Valerie B. Jarrett, earned $176,461. That equates to a $3,000 pay bump for the top-paid employees in the Trump Administration, compared to those in the Obama Administration last year.
