Ivanka Trump & Jared Kushner Earned $82M While Working at White House Last Year

HeadlineJun 12, 2018

The Washington Post is reporting President Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, and her husband, Jared Kushner, raked in at least $82 million in outside income last year, even as both served as senior White House advisers. Ivanka Trump received nearly $4 million from her stake in the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C., $2 million from the Trump Organization and $5 million from the trust that oversees her clothing brand. Her husband, Jared Kushner, raked in a total of $70 million from dozens of companies tied to his family’s real estate company, Kushner Companies. Ethics experts say the extraordinary income flow while the two are serving as senior White House advisers raises concerns about conflicts of interest.
