A new disclosure report shows that Ivanka Trump made $4 million last year from her conflicted and corrupt Washington, DC hotel.
Ivanka Trump made $4 million from her investment in her father’s Washington hotel last year, according to a disclosure released by the White House on Friday.
She also made at least $1 million from her line of branded apparel, jewelry, and other merchandise, down from at least $5 million in the previous year. Trump, 37, announced in July that she was closing her fashion businesses amid controversies over her role in the White House and after some big-name department stores dropped the brand.
Together, Trump and husband Jared Kushner earned between $28.8 million and $135.1 million in outside income while working as unpaid senior advisers to her father, President Donald Trump, their disclosures, which covers 2018, show.
Foreign governments have used the DC hotel as a source for bribes to the Trumps in an effort to win favor with the administration. The DC hotel is at the center of several lawsuits around Trump violating the Emoluments Clause of the Constitution. Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump were given high-level security clearances after Donald Trump overruled intelligence community concerns that they were both national security risks.
Corruption and crime are the Trump family businesses, and Ivanka Trump is demonstrating why she deserves the boos and chants of lock her up wherever she goes.
