Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner Reveal Wealth

Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner earned at least $82 million in outside income in their first year as unpaid senior advisers to the president, disclosure forms cited by US media say.

President Trump's daughter and son-in-law have continued to invest heavily and trade in real estate.

Ivanka Trump reportedly earned $3.9 million from a stake in Trump International Hotel and more than $5 million from her personal brand, according to the BBC.

The earnings have raised ethics concerns about conflicts of interest.

The figures came in ethics disclosures released by the White House late on Monday, as Trump was away on his widely reported trip to meet North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

Both Ivanka Trump and Kushner stepped back from day-to-day roles in their various companies to join the president's team, and Kushner, a real estate developer, divested some commercial holdings.

But both also maintained significant stakes in companies – Kushner in real estate and Ivanka Trump in her branded clothing and accessories line.

Ivanka Trump also reported $2 million in earnings from the Trump Organization and a $289,000 advance for her book, "Women Who Work." Kushner reported more than $5 million in income from a New Jersey apartment complex.

Kushner's 2017 assets were worth between $179 million and $735 million, while Ivanka Trump's were worth between about $55.3 million and $75.6 million, according to a Washington Post analysis.

According to CNN, Kushner reported assets of at least $174 million at the end of 2017, according to a person familiar with the couple's financial disclosure documents. His holdings could reach more than $710 million. CNNMoney's own calculations confirm those numbers.
