White House senior advisers and professional grifters Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner are cleaning the fuck up outside of the administration jobs they were given because of daddy president. According to new financial disclosures, the couple made a whopping $82 million in outside income in 2017. $82 million!
From the Washington Post:
Trump earned at least $12 million last year, with the largest source of income coming from the trust that oversees her clothing brand, which paid her more than $5 million, the filings show. [...]
For his part, Kushner reported drawing income from dozens of companies tied to his family’s real estate company. In all, he pulled in at least $70 million, the documents show.
Additionally, Trump scored $3.9 million from her share of the Trump International Hotel in Washington pie, and $2 million in severance from the Trump Organization. Meanwhile Kushner was making $5 million from a New Jersey apartment complex.
While Trump and Kushner oh so graciously work as unpaid advisers—because they’re ballin’ out already—the flow of outside cash remains conflicted as hell, the Post notes:
But while Kushner divested some holdings, he and his wife have maintained large stakes in businesses with domestic and foreign ties. Kushner’s family real estate company has properties around the country, including thousands of apartment units in states including New Jersey and Maryland. Trump’s eponymous clothing and accessories line is produced exclusively in foreign factories in countries such as Bangladesh, Indonesia and China.
Ivanka also happens to wear her brand quite a lot, particularly in social media posts seen by millions of people. An analysis from the Wall Street Journal in 2017 found that between March and October of that year, the first daughter wore her eponymous brand in 46 of the 68 photos. Some might call this advertising!
