hi

 

One of the weak points in the Lebanese community is salary scheduling inside the private and public sector. But, does anyone know that the Lebanese Ambassador’s salary is equal to the salary of the Lebanese president and the US vice president?

Whereas the salary of Lebanese Ambassador is 20000 USD monthly, the Lebanese president’s salary is only 8333 USD and 19225 USD for the US vice president. In addition to the foreign allowances for his Diplomatic missions, which differ between one country and another such as 230% in France, 310% in Japan and 190% in Saudi Arabia. Also, we can’t forget the cost of housing, car and the fees given to his chef and driver which will make his annual salary reach 500000 USD

But, does did anyone know that the ....... It's better to use "did" because we are asking for a pre-existing knowledge.  Another example would be "Did you know that the clocks go forward an hour this weekend".  We are asking if the person already knew this.  When we use "Does" we are asking a genuine question we don't know the answer to!

Below, I have added the definite article (the) which I'm sure is just a typo omission as you used it correctly earlier.  I have also changed the very long phrase into a sentence with a main verb.  Apart from that it's nearly flawless!  Well done!
