Financial disclosures released Friday for Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner show the top White House advisers earned at least $36.2 million in outside income during 2019.
The combined income for the couple was, according to The Washington Post, at least $7 million higher than their outside income in 2018. The revenue comes from outside businesses such as real estate and Trump Organization hotels.
The disclosures suggest Trump and Kushner could have earned as much as $157 million, according to the Post. The Office of Government Ethics does not require them to file exact amounts, however, only a range of the assets and liabilities, meaning it's unclear the exact amount of outside income they brought in for 2019.
According to the Post, they reported between $203.8 million and $782.8 million in assets in 2019, compared with between $181 million and $755 million in 2018.
Trump again reported earning $3.9 million from her stake in the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C. She previously earned millions from her fashion brands as well but shut them down in July 2018.
The Office of Government Ethics will review the financial disclosures for possible violations.
The earnings of Trump family members from Trump Organization properties and real estate have drawn scrutiny, as critics have raised conflict of interest concerns with their roles in the White House.
Kushner was recently expected to divest from a tech startup after it was revealed that it had been partially fueled by foreign investors but earlier this month chose not to go through with the plan. His stake in the company reportedly ranges from $25 million to $50 million, totaling nearly 2.5 million shares.
