In the new role as a senior White House aide, Scaramucci could earn $179,000 annually.

Scaramucci, a New York financier, made millions before entering the White House.

A financial disclosure form he filled out for his previous post as chief strategy officer at the Export-Import Bank showed that Scaramucci made about ten million between January 1 and the end of June from his investment firm SkyBridge Capital, according to Politico.

Scaramucci did not take a salary for his role at the Ex-Im Bank, which would have been $172,100 annually.
