Schiller has told associates within the last two weeks that he plans to leave the White House at the end of September or in early October, the sources said. Schiller has told people his primary reason for leaving was financial, the sources said. Schiller earns a $165,000 annual salary at the White House — a downgrade from his annual earnings before he followed Trump to the White House.
Schiller’s planned departure comes just over a month after Kelly became chief of staff with the mission of instilling new order inside Trump’s often chaotic White House. But Trump has chafed at some of Kelly’s attempts to restrict access to the President.
