Ivanka, Kushner earn $135 million for 2018

Associated Press

NEW YORK – Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner took in as much as $135 million in revenue during their second year as aides to President Donald Trump, generated from their vast real estate holdings, stocks and bonds and even a book deal, according to their financial disclosures released Friday.

Ivanka Trump's stake in her family's Washington, D.C., hotel down the street from the Oval Office generated $3.95 million in revenue in 2018, barely changed from a year earlier. The hotel, a favorite gathering spot for foreign diplomats and lobbyists, is at the center of two federal lawsuits claiming Donald Trump is violating the Constitution's ban on foreign government payments to the president.

Ivanka Trump's trust that includes her personal business selling handbags, shoes and accessories generated at least $1 million in revenue in 2018, down from at least $5 million in 2017.

Kushner took in hundreds of thousands of dollars from his holdings of New York City apartments and his stake in real estate investment firm Cadre worth at least $25 million.
