Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner earned a stunning amount past year

Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner raked in at least $82 million in outside income while working in the White House previous year, according to reports.

Trump reportedly made almost $6 million from Trump businesses like the Trump International Hotel in D.C. and in severance from the Trump Organization.

Kushner and Trump, who have put their daily management of their companies on hold while they serve at the White House, have still managed to obtain huge amounts of income from other firms during their stint in public service. Her father was inaugurated on January 20, 2017, and Ivanka Trump officially joined the White House as an unpaid senior adviser in March 2017, after her initial attempts to serve as an informal adviser raised ethics questions.

While this is an increase from the total value of assets between $206 and $760 million the two reported in the last disclosure form, it's hard to make a direct comparison because the latest filing covers a shorter period of time, between January 2017 through December 2017, whereas the last report covers January 2016 through April 2017.

Quickly becoming one of the most popular get-together spot for Republicans and Trump supporters across the world, the luxury hotel on the historic Old Post Office site, which opened September 2016, has brought in almost $4 million for the president's daughter in 2017, up from the $2.4 million reported in the 2016 statement.

Kushner, the president's son-in-law and a top White House aide, pulled in at least US$69 million in income a year ago, much of it from his own family's far-flung real estate empire, financial disclosure forms filed Monday show. "It's also impossible to calculate precise totals of income and assets because the documents - which are used throughout government - ask officeholders to disclose figures in ranges, such as "$100,000 to $1,000,000". Based on the filings, CNN estimates Kushner's net worth is $174 million to $710 million and Trump's is $55 million to $75 million. Other income came from capital gains, Ms. Trump's businesses, the Trump Hotel in Washington D.C. and from the Trump Corporation salary and severance.

Kushner brought in at least $5 million from Quail Ridge, a Kushner Cos. apartment complex in Plainsboro, N.J. The Trump family has faced accusations of using the presidency for personal profit.

In an email statement, Peter Mirijanian - a spokesman for Abbe Lowell, Kushner's and Ivanka Trump's ethics counsel - said that the couple have followed all ethics rules and that Monday's disclosures are an insufficient way to understand the nuances of their net worth. In all, he took in at least $70 million, the Post said.
