Ivanka Trump, Jared Kush­ner took in up to $135M in 2018

Baltimore Sun Sunday - - NATION & WORLD -

NEW YORK — Ivanka Trump and Jared Kush­ner took in as much as $135 mil­lion in rev­enue dur­ing their sec­ond year as aides to Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump, gen­er­ated from their vast real es­tate hold­ings, stocks and bonds and even a book deal, ac­cord­ing to their fi­nan­cial dis­clo­sures re­leased Fri­day.

Ivanka Trump’s stake in her fam­ily’s Wash­ing­ton, D.C., ho­tel down the street from the Oval Of­fice gen­er­ated $3.95 mil­lion in rev­enue in 2018, barely changed from a year ear­lier. The ho­tel is at the cen­ter of two fed­eral law­suits claim­ing Don­ald Trump is vi­o­lat­ing the Con­sti­tu­tion’s ban on for­eign gov­ern­ment pay­ments to the pres­i­dent.

An­other big Ivanka Trump hold­ing, a trust that in­cludes her per­sonal busi­ness sell­ing hand­bags, shoes and ac­ces­sories, gen­er­ated at least $1 mil­lion in rev­enue in 2018, down from at least $5 mil­lion the year be­fore. Ivanka Trump an­nounced in July of last year that she planned to close her fash­ion com­pany to fo­cus on her work as a White House ad­viser for her fa­ther.

The dis­clo­sure for Kush­ner shows that he took in hun­dreds of thou­sands of dol­lars from his apart­ments and that he owns a stake in the real es­tate in­vest­ment firm Cadre worth at least $25 mil­lion.

The dis­clo­sures re­leased by the White House and filed with the U.S. Of­fice of Gov­ern­ment Ethics show min­i­mum rev­enue for the cou­ple of $28 mil­lion gen­er­ated last year from as­sets val­ued at over $180 mil­lion. The dis­clo­sures show rev­enue, as­sets and debts in broad ranges be­tween low and high es­ti­mates, mak­ing it dif­fi­cult to chart the rise and fall of busi­ness and fi­nan­cial hold­ings.
