President Donald Trump is continuing to shake up his staff, with White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci departing the administration on Friday.
This is the third high-profile White House departure to take place just in the last 10 days alone. White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer and White House Chief of Staff Reince Preibus also recently announced their resignations.
Clearly, this White House has been a bit chaotic, with firings and hirings happening almost every week. But there are also hundreds of White House employees who we never hear from and whose names have virtually never been in the news. Recently, the White House released its full list of employees, also including their salaries and pay basis.
According to this list, there are currently 377 people working in the White House. This includes five people who contribute to speech writing: Brittany Baldwin, Vincent Haley, Ryan Jarmula, Theodore Royer, and Ross Worthington.
Some of the people on this list are full time White House employees, while others are detailees, meaning they work for another government agency but have been temporarily assigned to the White House.
This list of employees was published on June 30th, 2017, so it’s just a little out of date. Here is everything about the list that is no longer accurate:
- Sean Spicer will be resigning as White House press secretary at the end of August. He will be replaced by Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
- Michael Short resigned as assistant press secretary.
- Reince Priebus is no longer White House chief of staff; the chief of staff is now John Kelly.
- Anthony Scaramucci is no longer White House communications director.
With these changes in mind, here’s a look at all of the employees currently working at the White House:
