Former Goldman Sachs COO Gary Cohn took a steep pay cut to join President Donald Trump’s administration.
Cohn, who earned a combined salary and bonus of $7.3 million at Goldman Sachs in 2016, is now making $30,000 a year as Trump’s director of the National Economic Council — a 99.6% decrease.
The new salary figure is based on an annual report to Congress released Friday detailing compensation of White House staff.
Other high-ranking officials make considerably more. Steve Bannon, a chief strategist to Trump, makes $179,700, as does senior counselor Kellyanne Conway.
