Unpaid advisers Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner made $US81 million past year

White House adviser Jared Kushner speaks in the East Room of the White House in Washington. A newly-released 2018 financial disclosure shows that White House special adviser Jared Kushner’s wealth and debt both

WASHINGTON-Senior White House adviser Jared Kushner saw the minimum value of his assets rise in the first year of President Donald Trump's administration, newly released financial disclosures show. That income included US$3.9 million from the Trump International Hotel located in Washington and $US2 million in salary and severance from the Trump Organisation.

The president's son-in-law and daughter together reported personal assets of between $240 million and $780 million by the end of 2017.

Critics say that the many investments and transactions of Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner raise serious concerns about conflicts of interest.

Trump and Kushner aren't the only White House staffers raking in the millions, however.

In July 2017, the time of their last financial disclosure, the couple reported joint income of at least Dollars 19 million from business ventures and another USD 80 million in real estate and other revenue between January 2016 and early 2017.

Bolton also reported at least $11.2 million in assets, most of which were held in what ethics rules call exempted investment funds that don't have to be divested because they invest in a wide variety of securities.

The new disclosure shows that Kushner did take on a new debt past year with Bank of America worth between $US5 million ($6.6m) and US$25 million ($33.01m) - but jointly with other investors in Quail Ridge LLC, a company used for his family firm's purchase of Quail Ridge, a 1,032-unit apartment community in Plainsboro, N.J., near Princeton.

It's hard to determine the couple's precise income previous year because federal officials report their assets, income and liability in broad ranges only.

The figure was outed in financial disclosure forms released Monday.

In addition to her family-related businesses, Trump earned $289,300 as an advance from Penguin Random House for her book, "Women Who Work". Based on the filings, CNN estimates Kushner's net worth is $174 million to $710 million and Trump's is $55 million to $75 million.

"Since joining the administration, Mr Kushner and Ms Trump have complied with the rules and restrictions as set out by the Office of Government Ethics", Mr Mirijanian said in a statement.

Washington Post's review of the disclosure records has found that the couple brought in at least $82 million over the a year ago. Trump has come under scrutiny from ethics watchdogs who have accused the president of using his office to promote his properties.
