More than 40% of White House staffers are making more than $100,000 per year under President Trump, the AP reports. That includes 22 aides—Sean Spicer, Steve Bannon, Reince Priebus, Kellyanne Conway, and Omirosa Manigault, among them—making the max White House salary of $179,700. According to the Washington Post, two former Microsoft and Goldman Sachs executives are making the lowest possible salary of $30,000. And Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump aren't taking home a salary at all.

One staffer, senior policy advisor Mark House, is actually making $187,100 because he's technically employed by the FAA. The number of top-paid staffers is mostly in line with the Obama administration. The White House released salary details Friday as has been required by law since 1995. (More White House stories.)
