Last Friday, the Trump administration released their annual report to Congress on White House Office Personnel, and it showed that President Trump has kept his word and donated his entire pay cheque.
Unlike the previous President, Trump’s salary will be spent repairing military cemeteries to the delight of military families across the country.

Also in the report it showed that President Trump is saving tax payers money with the total annual White House salaries under Trump are $35.8 million vs. $40.9 under Obama, a savings of $5.1 million.
Here are some other key findings:
There are 110 fewer employees on White House staff under Trump than under Obama at this point in their respective presidencies.
Nineteen fewer staffers are dedicated to The First Lady of the United States (FLOTUS). Currently, there are five staffers dedicated to Melania Trump vs. 24 staffers who served Michelle Obama (FY2009).
Counts of the “Assistants to the President” – the most trusted advisors to the president – are the same (22) in both first-year Trump and Obama administrations.
In the Trump White House, Steven Bannon, Kellyanne Conway, Omarosa Manigault, Reince Priebus, Sean Spicer and 17 others make salaries of $179,700. In Obama’s first-year, David Axelrod, Rahm Emanuel and twenty others held the title with top pay of $172,000.
The highest compensated White House Trump staffer? Mark House, Senior Policy Advisor, has a salary of $187,500. Mr. House is “on detail” from a federal agency which allows him to exceed the top pay-grade of $179,700. In Obama’s Administration (2009), David Marcozzi earned $193,000 “on detail” from Health and Human Services.
