Ivanka Trump, Jared Kushner made $82 million past year

Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner earned at least $82 million past year from investments and business concerns outside of their jobs as unpaid senior advisers to the president, according to financial disclosures released by the White House.

Jared Kushner, senior White House adviser, left, and Ivanka Trump, assistant to US President Donald Trump, get ready to board Marine One.

Ivanka Trump reported United States dollars 3.9 million from her stake in the Trump International Hotel in Washington, as well as more than USD 2 million in severance pay from the Trump Organization, the Washington Post said, citing financial disclosure forms released today.

The White House released the disclosures for Kushner and Ivanka Trump on a heavy news day, while the world's media lavished attention on President Trump's preparations to meet with North Korea's Kim Jong Un for talks over nuclear weapons.

The news sources didn't list all the sources of income for the power couple, but just cited a few examples from financial disclosure forms obtained by the newspaper.

Despite public scrutiny of their finances amid questions of conflicts of interest, a spokesman for the couple's lawyer said Trump and Kushner have followed the rules.

Further, she earned several fixed payments a year from companies related to the Trump brand, totaling about $1.5 million.

Kushner declared income from dozens of companies linked to his family's real estate company. The latest disclosure shows it was worth at least $25 million at the end of a year ago, up from a minimum value of $5 million in his previous disclosure. The Trump family has faced accusations of using the presidency for personal profit.

Ivanka Trump and Kushner resigned positions with their companies to take on prominent, yet unpaid, roles in her father's administrations, but the disclosure shows how they continue to financially benefit from an array of outside ventures. He reported more than $5 million in capital gains from the sale of a shopping mall in the Bronx.

The earnings have raised ethics concerns about conflicts of interest.
