WASHINGTON — White House aides Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, President Donald Trump’s daughter and son-in-law made $82 million in outside income in 2017, according to filings released by the White House late Monday.
Kushner has been at the White House since Trump was sworn into office in January of 2017 and Ivanka Trump joined that March. Neither Kushner or Trump receives a White House salary.
The sum includes nearly $4 million from the first daughter’s stake in the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C., which has come under scrutiny from ethics watchdogs concerned that foreign governments could attempt to curry favor with the administration via the commercial enterprise.
Peter Mirijanian, the spokesperson for Kushner and Trump’s ethics counsel, Abbe Lowell, told the Washington Post Monday that the couple complied fully with requirements laid out by the Office of Government Ethics.
The White House released the president’s financial report last month, but chose to release the information about his eldest daughter and son-in-law Monday evening as the media was covering the president’s summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un in Singapore.
