But his latest sleight toward women is less flashy, but possibly more insidious than those other two: His administration has drastically increased the salary disparity between men and women working in the White House. For women, it was $84,409.

The report said the average salary among men working in the white house was more than $105,000 a year.

Of the 22 employees making the highest salary of $179,700, only six were found to be women.

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

The lowest-paid staffers in the White House - excluding those who entered public service on the condition they receive a lower salary - earn $40,000 annually. In 2014, Obama signed an executive order promoting fair pay and safe work conditions, including mandates for paycheck transparency and a ban on forced arbitration in cases of sexual harassment, gender-based discrimination or sexual assault.

In April, Ivanka Trump told her four million Twitter followers it was time to close the gender pay gap, writing, "women deserve equal pay for equal work".

Ivanka Trump, the president's eldest daughter and assistant in the White House, has been outspoken on the need to eliminate the gender pay gap, but the president recently rolled back Obama-era protections against gender discrimination in the workplace.

As of 2015, the federal government gender pay gap was 11 percent, according to a report by the Office of Personnel Management.
