Joe Biden has hired 560 people to work on his White House staff. And 435 of them have quit on disgust.

Biden also has created the largest White House staff in fifty years. A White House staff has not been this big since 1971 when Richard Nixon was in office. But Biden has even surpassed Nixon.

To date, Biden has thrown $225 million of our tax dollars at his staff. Meanwhile, the actual budget is only $60.8 million.

Per Open The Books:

No White House since the Richard Nixon administration ever employed 500 staffers until Biden became president. The Biden White House employed 560 in FY2021; 474 in FY2022; 524 in FY2023; and the headcount increased by 41, to 565 this year.

Biden employs 152 more staffers than Trump (413) (FY2020) and 97 more than Obama (468) (FY2012) at the same point in their respective presidencies.

Between 2023 and 2024, 225 people left, a 43 percent turnover rate, only slightly lower than the 46 percent turnover rate between 2022 and 2023.

Jill Biden’s staff increased by four employees, to 24 this year. Dr. Biden’s staff now equals Michelle Obama’s staff (FY2009) – a headcount that was controversial – and far exceeds Melania Trump staff of 11 (FY2020).

Biden has also grown the federal payroll otherwise, as well.

There are now 40,000 new federal employees under Biden. None of these people should have been hired.

Amusingly, despite Biden’s claims to be a diehard lefty, men are still making a lot more than women in his White House.
