Disclosures show Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump made at least $80 million last year

#

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, Ivanks Trump's businesses, the Trump International 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.

A spokesperson for the two said that their net worth has not changed much and stressed that they have complied with government ethics restrictions.

“Since joining the administration, Mr. Kushner and Ms. Trump have complied with the rules and restrictions as set out by the Office of Government Ethics," Peter Mirijanian, spokesperson for Abbe Lowell, Jared Kushner's attorney and the couple's ethics counsel told ABC News in a statement.

"As to the current filing which OGE also reviews, their net worth remains largely the same, with changes reflecting more the way the form requires disclosure than any substantial difference in assets or liabilities.”

According to President Trump's own annual financial disclosure form released last month, his Washington, D.C., hotel had a banner year, raking in over $40 million in income between January and December 2017. Trump has come under scrutiny from ethics watchdogs who have accused the president of using his office to promote his properties.

The hotel has been the target of lawsuits that allege it's a violation of the Constitution for Trump to received what amount to illegal gifts from foreign governments in the form of payments to his hotel.

    So What? They were rich before and they are still rich.

    I'd be more worried about the Obamas, who got rich while in office.

    To all of you "Real Americans" sitting in your diners in Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Iowa, etc who chose to elect a game-show host as President and let his family of grifters have the White House and loot the Treasury, please know you didn't "drain the swamp" in any measurement sense. You elected it.

    What a great story to see, coming in the very same week that this President trashes our allies while embracing the most murderous dictator on Earth. Oh, and we're now ripping children away from their parents in the border and throwing them in cages.

    Take a bow, Republicans. You built that.

  • FasterBadger

    Yep, rich people are rich.

  • curly4

    Check the congressional roles, there more democrats that are of the 1% than there republicans.
    The difference that is here is the income reported by Jarrid and Ivanka is on record as to where it come from which is more than we know about these congressional politicians.

    Corruption at it's finest.

    Wow, Ivanka, you can sure make a lot of money from those sweatshops in Asia. I'm glad you are contributing to the economy!

    There are the facts, pay to play with the the daughter-wife of Little Donny John, and you get to pay an play with Little Donny John and Pagan Pence.

    I don’t believe a word out of their mouths. Of course they deny it, but I believe they
    are using their official positions to help fatten their bank accounts, and that’s a crime.

    In any case, I think it’s a crime for any one person (or couple) to make that much money. I don’t care what anyone says, the economy is a closed (zero sum) system. Whatever excessive sums (i.e. beyond any conceivable need) the rich take for themselves is that much less available to pay living wages to everyone else...

    I don’t mind people getting rich, but there should be reasonable limits.

    NOBODY needs 100X as much as anyone in the 99% has.

    Rumor has it that Ivanka will have some explaining to do once Cohen's files are released on Friday.

    Should be interesting.

  • PerchLady

    I cracked up listening to Jared's convict father opine about how much these two kids have 'sacrificed' by serving the government in unpaid positions. Sacrificed WHAT? Other than having to hide their faces as all of their dirty laundry is aired, their reputations now are smeared publicly. Maybe that was sacrificed. But they brought that on by themselves with their dubious business practices.

  • jon rhodes

    Elitists do what they wish and we small people do what we must. Not only that, these folks rake it in with one hand and thumb their noses at us with the other. These two (Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump) are supposedly paid senior White House advisors and their non-government related businesses brought in something over 80 million dollars last year. Whatever happened to "conflict of interest" issues? Where is our Congressional oversight committee? Disgusting.

  • stamped human bacon

    Ain't nepotism grand?

    That's why there are laws against this sort of thing. Of course, with this enabling and abetting Congress, the law is now mearly a list of suggestions.

  • morty harenza

    I can see the President's point now. If Europe wasn't raiding America's "piggy bank", Jared and Ivanka could have made a decent buck last year.

  • pfon71361

    Mr. Kushner and Ms. Trump work tirelessly. It's just not to advance the interests of the American people. That would require self-sacrifice and foregoing windfall increases in their income due solely to their connection to the president. The "swamp" seems to be growing exponentially, not draining, contrary to a famous campaign promise.

    but we all know... Soros, Kochs, Gates, Zuckerberg... Buffet, they are yawwwwnnning at this...

    Say what!!! That's the purpose of this presidency, to make money money money.

  • Samuel Ryan

    Don't forget a large part of this money is made by the Trump Organization so Daddy gets a cut .

    Wow... being a White House senior advisor has become a very lucrative position.
