Jared Kushner and wife Ivanka Trump made at least $80 million in outside income last year while working as White House advisers to President Donald Trump, according to newly-released financial disclosure forms.
The president’s son-in-law and daughter together reported personal assets of between $240 million and $780 million by the end of 2017. Trump held more than $55 million of that, and Kushner, at least $180 million.
Kushner and Trump received the majority of their outside income from real estate matters. Other income came from capital gains, Ms. Trump's businesses, the Trump Hotel in Washington D.C. and from the Trump Corporation salary and severance.
While this is an increase from the total value of assets between $206 and $760 million the two reported in the last disclosure form, it's difficult to make a direct comparison because the latest filing covers a shorter period of time, between January 2017 through December 2017, whereas the last report covers January 2016 through April 2017. The two reports also have an overlapping period between January and April 2017.
Ivanka Trump reported a stake in the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C., valued between $5 million and $25 million.
Quickly becoming one of the most popular get-together spot for Republicans and Trump supporters across the world, the luxury hotel on the historic Old Post Office site, which opened September 2016, has brought in nearly $4 million for the president's daughter in 2017, up from the $2.4 million reported in the 2016 statement.
