According to a CNN analysis of the annual report to Congress, women working at the presidential office are earning 80 cents to every dollar paid to their male colleagues.

The White House released salary information of its 377 staffers on June 30 in line with a Congressional rule dating back to 1995.

So far, the White House has not responded to CNN's request for a comment.

When calculating the averages, Roll Call omitted the three employees who are taking no salary, including the president's daughter, her husband Jared Kushner, and a former Baltimore real estate developer. They include well-known aides such as special counselor Kellyanne Conway, director of strategic communications Hope Hicks and reality television star turned presidential staffer Omarosa Manigault. Press Secretary Sean Spicer, White House Counsel Donald McGahn and chief strategist Stephen Bannon are among the men in that list. Perry also notes in his analysis that of the top 101 highest-paid White House employees, almost 75% of them are men.

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.

As with many topics, the White House has given mixed messages on its dedication to ensuring equal pay between the sexes. But she was quickly lambasted for the remark, as critics pointed to her father's earlier decision to revoke the Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces executive order that President Barack Obama signed in 2014.

The average gender pay gap in the U.S.in 2016 was 18.1 percent, meaning that for every dollar earned by a man, a woman earned 81.9 cents, according to data from the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).

The news of the wider gender pay gap in Trump's White House comes as his administration considers disbanding Obama's White House Council on Women and Girls, responsible for monitoring the implementation of policy changes and liaising with women's groups, as reported by Politico.

CNN calculated the gender gap using employee names and research.
