Assets: White House Reveals Aides’ Finances

Assets: White House Reveals Aides’ Finances
  • PublishedApril 1, 2017

Documents released by the White House have revealed millions of dollars in assets held by its senior staff.

President Trump’s daughter Ivanka and her husband, Jared Kushner, have assets valued between $240m and $740m (£191m- £590m).

That includes a stake in Trump International Hotel, which earned Ms Trump between $1m and $5m last year.

The financial disclosure documents also detail salaries of several other high-profile figures in the administration.

Ethics regulations require such financial disclosures for staff working in the White House. The documents show income and assets at the time they started working for the US government – before any assets were sold or disposed of.

Neither President Donald Trump or Vice-President Mike Pence were part of the disclosure release, which came late on Friday.

The documents, which US media have uploaded online, list asset values within a range, rather than giving precise figures.

Among the revelations are Ivanka Trump’s business empire is worth more than $50m, and the value of her stake in Trump International Hotel is between $5m and $25m, according to the filing of her husband, Jared.

Ms Trump only recently became a formal White House employee, and may file her own disclosure form later.

Jared Kushner’s disclosure document runs to 54 pages, detailing positions held at 267 organisations, many of which he has since divested himself of.

In the previous year, he earned hundreds of thousands of dollars from real estate and other assets.
