Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump
  • Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner received at least $36 million in outside income in 2019, according to financial disclosure forms. 
  • The couple continue to receive a substantial income from a range of businesses, investments, and other assets. 
  • Both Trump and Kushner are senior White House advisers, and their outside earnings have raised conflict of interest issues. 

The income, first reported by The Washington Post, is from the businesses, properties, and other assets owned by the couple.

According to the Post, the amount is about $7 million higher than their earnings in 2018, and the real amount may be as high as $157 million, as the Office for Government Ethics does not require officials to submit exact but only approximate income figures. 

According to the Post, they reported between $203.8 million and $782.8 million in assets in 2019, compared to between $181 million and $755 million in 2018.

Ivanka Trump again reported earning $3.9 million from her stake in the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C. She previously earned millions from her fashion brands as well, but shut them down in July 2018.
