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.

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.

Kushner reported at least $27 million and as much as $135 million in outstanding liabilities. His previous disclosure filed in April 2017 had showed assets in at least the US$140 million range ($184.8m). Several of those properties created at least $5 million in passive income past year. The transactions occurred between March and September 2017.

"As to the current filing which OGE also reviews, their net worth remains largely the same, with changes reflecting more the way the form requires disclosure than any substantial difference in assets or liabilities".

Trump recently scored a batch of trademarks in China as her father continues trade talks with Beijing, garnering scrutiny from some ethics experts.

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