Financial disclosure forms show that White House special adviser - and President Donald Trump's son-in-law - Jared Kushner's wealth and debt both appear to have risen over the year, an indication of the complex state of his finances and the potential conflicts that confront some of his investments.
Mrs. Trump's earnings include $3.9 in profits from the Trump International Hotel in Washington, more than $2 million in pay and severance from the Trump Organization, and $5 million from her personal brand. He also said in his filing that he would continue to recuse himself from matters involving broker-dealer, real estate and online financial services related to his holdings in Quadro Partners, which owns Cadre.com, an online platform for investing in real estate. Trump held more than $55 million of that, and Kushner, at least $180 million. On Monday, new financial disclosures revealed the the couple made at least $82 million in outside income past year.
Altogether, Ivanka Trump made at least $12 million in 2017.
The couple's income originates from a wide variety of sources, including investments, trusts, dozens of real estate transactions, a book advance of almost $300,000 for Ivanka Trump, and stakes in businesses like the almost $4 million Ivanka Trump earned from her interest in the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C. The Post estimated Kushner's assets at 179 million dollars to 735 million dollars past year, compared to between 55.3 million dollars and 75.6 million dollars for Trump, noting that the Office of Government Ethics uses broad ranges for assets and liabilities. Her book Women Who Work netted her a $289,300 advance from Penguin Random House. "It's also impossible to calculate precise totals of income and assets because the documents - which are used throughout government - ask officeholders to disclose figures in ranges, such as "$100,000 to $1,000,000".

The coalition force was conducting a "multi-day operation" to clear al-Shabaab, an Islamist militant group, from nearby villages. Somali officials have said civilians have been killed in more than one joint USA military operation with Somali forces.
Kushner reported divesting more than 125 assets, and listed several others as being in process of divestment.
In addition to earning tens of millions previous year, the Trump-Kushner power couple have taken on significant debt, apparently mostly due to real estate purchases.
Peter Mirijanian, a spokesman for the couple's ethics lawyer, Abbe Lowell, said Ms Trump and Mr Kushner had abided by government ethics rules. Trump has come under scrutiny from ethics watchdogs who have accused the president of using his office to promote his properties.
A spokesperson for the two said that their net worth has not changed much and stressed that they have complied with government ethics restrictions.
