Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump Made Over $80 Million in Outside Income Last Year While Serving in the White House, Filings Show

By Daniella Cheslow, NPR

12 June 18

 

vanka Trump and Jared Kushner earned at least $82 million last year from investments and business concerns outside of their jobs as unpaid senior advisers to the president, according to financial disclosures released by the White House.

The documents released Monday show that Ivanka Trump earned $3.9 million from the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C. She earned another $2 million in salary and severance from the Trump Organization and a further $5 million from the trust that controls her brand for clothing.

Jared Kushner's filings reveal a sprawling real estate empire, with property in states including New York, New Jersey, Maryland, Illinois, Ohio and Connecticut generating millions in rent. Several of those properties created at least $5 million in passive income last year.

Kushner also listed a stake in Brooklyn Beer, restaurants in Las Vegas, and Thrive Capital Management, LLC, an investment firm founded by his brother Josh Kushner to focus on media and entertainment.

The disclosure lists are challenging to follow. Both Trump and Kushner have held positions in more than 200 companies and organizations. The Associated Press reports that the current disclosures reflect a possible rise in Kushner's assets, from at least $140 million in April 2017 to $181 million this spring.

The couple's disclosures include a number of debts; because each line of credit is only described as a broad spread, their total unpaid debt ranges between $27 million and $135 million.

In addition to her family-related businesses, Trump earned $289,300 as an advance from Penguin Random House for her book, "Women Who Work."

Further, she earned several fixed payments a year from companies related to the Trump brand, totaling about $1.5 million.

The White House released the financial disclosures for Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner Monday as President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un met in a highly anticipated summit in Singapore.

Also released Monday were the disclosures covering Chief of Staff John Kelly, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, and Nick Ayers, chief of staff to Vice President Mike Pence, The Wall Street Journal reports.

Comments   

A note of caution regarding our comment sections:

For months a stream of media reports have warned of coordinated propaganda efforts targeting political websites based in the U.S., particularly in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

We too were alarmed at the patterns we were, and still are, seeing. It is clear that the provocateurs are far more savvy, disciplined, and purposeful than anything we have ever experienced before.

It is also clear that we still have elements of the same activity in our article discussion forums at this time.

We have hosted and encouraged reader expression since the turn of the century. The comments of our readers are the most vibrant, best-used interactive feature at Reader Supported News. Accordingly, we are strongly resistant to interrupting those services.

It is, however, important to note that in all likelihood hardened operatives are attempting to shape the dialog our community seeks to engage in.

Adapt and overcome.

This is why we need to elect people like Bernie Sanders, whose total net worth is about what Javanka pull in in a week. Pathologically acquisitive people do not belong in politics.

Ha. I would double down on Samantha's comment. How dare this woman write a book about working women when her products are produced in third world countries that employed underaged children and page slave wages!

Why does that elegant title photo remind me of the last days of the Court of Louis WXVI?

Let's hope it foretells the last days of the Court of Donald I.

Of course this is wrong but it is business as usual in WDC.

Nancy Pelosi has tripled her fortune since entering Congress to 'serve the people' and half the senators are millionaires. Paul Ryan has made millions. Obama gets a cool half million for a speech to the people he didn't prosecute. The revolving door between Congress and K Street is used by both parties.

Who reported on the money the Clinton Foundation took in while HRC was Secretary of State, jetting around extorting nations to allow fracking etc.? She made promises about her involvement with the Foundation but broke them without consequence -- yet he msm declined to report that, even when she was running for president.

I'm against corruption NO MATTER WHO DOES IT, whereas the press only seems bothered when it's Trump.

I know people are annoyed I keep harping on this. It's not that I want Trump to get away with corruption, ignorance and abuses. It's that I want ALL politicians held to the standards we seem only recently to have discovered.

NPR is a Koch-backed organization now. What is their editorial bias?
