Women who work at the White House have an average salary of 80 cents for every dollar that men earn, according to an analysis by CNN.

The average salary for men in the White House is around $104,000, while for women it's around $83,000, according to CNN's look at the White House's annual report to Congress. 

More women are filling lower-ranked jobs at the White House, according to the report and CNN pointed out that half the men in the White House earn $95,000 or more per year, while half the women earn $70,100 or less.

CNN notes the highest salary for permanent White House employees is $179,700. Twenty-two employees are paid that salary and six of those are women.

The gender pay difference nationally is 82 cents for women against every dollar for men and as of 2015, federal government jobs' pay gap was 11 percent, according to a CNN look at an Office of Personnel Management report.

White House staff is almost evenly split among gender lines: 53 percent of the 359 regular employees are men, and 47 percent are women, CNN reported.

In April, Trump's daughter and adviser Ivanka Trump noted her support for ending the disparity:

In July 2016, the American Enterprise Institute analyzed the White House's report from that year, and found the pay disparity has increased under Trump. During President Barack Obama's last year, women were paid 10.75 percent less than their male counterparts.
