When Mark J. Perry, an economist at the conservative think tank The American Enterprise Institute, analyzed the data he found that "The typical female staffer in Trump's White House earns 63.2 cents per $1 earned by a typical male staffer", Perry writes.
CNN reported on the White House pay gap as though men and women working the same jobs are paid differently, but the fourth paragraph of their report tells a different story. Across the country, women earn 82 cents for every dollar men take home, according to the Labor Department.
The disparity appears to be directly linked to the question of who works in the upper ranks of the White House staff. However, according to new White House salary details released last week, it seems that message isn't necessarily reflected in her father's office.

But tax authorities later found that some of the information presented in that settlement was incorrect, the prosecutors said. A prosecutor said that Mourinho did not declare income from use of his image rights in order to gain an "illicit benefit".
The total 377 staffers, who also include First Daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner who both receive nothing for their role of special advisors to the president, represent a "slimmer" White House than President Barack Obama's final year staff of 472 (down from 487 in his first year).
According to CNN, the top salary for permanent White House employees is $179,700, or around £140,000: of the 22 people earning the top rate, only six are women.
On average, the difference between male and female salaries in the general economy is 23.5 percent, and in the current White House it's 45 percent.
Ivanka Trump has made it her mission to close the gap, even tweeting on #EqualPayDay on April 4. In April, equal-pay advocates criticized the president for signing an executive order that rolled back a regulation meant to protect women's ability to earn the same as men.
