Kushner, Ivanka Trump could exceed $700mn in worth


Washington: Combined assets of US President Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband, senior advisor Jared Kushner could exceed $700 million, a White House financial disclosure has revealed. Ivanka and Kushner, collected about $195 million in income, according to the disclosure issued on Friday which included also about 180 of the men and women serving in the White House.

Other Trump aides with lucrative histories include Trump’s top economic adviser Gary Cohn, the former president of banking giant Goldman Sachs, who netted up to around $75 million in the previous year, and White House chief strategist Steve Bannon who made up to $2.5 million, CNN reported.

The financial background of Kushner, Bannon and Cohn are detailed in new forms that disclose the assets that they held when they walked in the doors of the White House — before administration counsel advised them to resign from various postings, divest certain holdings or recuse themselves from future decisions.

Kushner, like Trump, a prominent real estate titan, held positions in 267 separate entities, ranging from the Trump transition team to dozens of property holdings in New York and New Jersey. Ivanka Trump, who just this week formally said she would join the West Wing after serving as an informal adviser to her father, is yet to file her own disclosure forms. But the White House said earlier on Friday that her documents would look largely similar to her husband’s.
