Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner took in at least $28 million in outside income while serving in the Trump administration last year, according to drafts of the couple’s latest financial disclosure forms, released Friday by watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility & Ethics in Washington.
The documents, which require government officials to list their assets and income in broad ranges, show the president’s daughter and son-in-law raked in between $28.8 million and $135.3 million from their vast investment portfolios in 2018.
Most notably, Ivanka earned between $1 million and $5 million from the Ivanka M. Trump Business Trust, an entity she created to hold her fashion and brand companies. Last July, she announced she was shutting down those businesses amid a bevy of ethics concerns and a reported plummet in sales.
Vanity Fair reports:
Jared Kushner also disclosed “at least $27 million and as much as $135 million in debt,” as well as the purchase of PV Bungalow LLC, a hotel in Long Branch, New Jersey, for between $1 million and $5 million, and residential real estate in Brooklyn costing between $1.5 million and $3 million.
Ivanka, whom the White House has previously described as “sacrificing” in her service to the nation, listed assets and income worth between $187.6 million and $786.3 million.
Truly, it’s a wonder these two haven’t been nationally recognized for practically living paycheck to paycheck, though presumably it’s only a matter of time before Trump awards them the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
That huge swing between $28 million and $135 million is due the wide ranges listed as the values of each holding.
Jared and Ivanka, who supposedly left tons of money on the table to work for Trump, made $135 million last year https://t.co/3oVjlpuO2h
