The White House issued financial details about its staff on Friday night, including its wife, President Donald Trump Jared Kushner and his daughter Ivanka Trump. The couple is benefiting from several real estate and investment companies worth about $ 741 million, according to the latest disclosures.
Before Kushner became a senior adviser to Donald Trump, he was forced to resign from 266 positions and sell 58 companies or investments identified by lawyers that could create a conflict of interest with Kushner’s current job.
As for the other real estate properties of the couple, many of them in New York City, Jamie Gorelik, a lawyer who worked on the couple’s ethics agreements, told The Associated Press: “The remaining conflicts, in practice, are very narrow and manageable.”
Despite its new government responsibilities, Ivanka Trump maintains a stake in the Trump International Hotel in Washington, DC, located directly on White Street. Ethics experts fear that foreign governments or private interests can remain there, asking for special benefit from the Trump administration. Although it is still unclear how Ivanka Trump will gain from her hotel share, Koushner disclosed financial disclosure that in 2016-2017, she got between $ 1 million and $ 5 million of it. The New York Times reported that the disclosures put the value of its share between $ 5 million and $ 25 million.
Senior officials, whose financial details revealed Gary Cohen, former chairman of the White House National Economic Council, Senior Advisor Steve Bannon, White House Chief of Staff Reyn Pripos, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer and Clyan Conway, Trump’s campaign leader, turned over a consultant.
The White House did not concede that the net worth of current employees is believed to be the richest in US history. Former President Barack Obama’s former staff was found eight years ago as “simple” or “moderate” by the government’s ethics office, while the Trump’s own acquisitions were “complex” or “very complex,” The Guardian said.
