How much does Trump's PhD earn

U.S. government: That's how much Trump's team earns

US President's daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner have earned hundreds of millions of dollars in investment business after taking up their positions in government. White House documents reveal the assets and assets of senior employees. The decisive factor was the time at which they began their government work.

The financial news agency Bloomberg estimates the cabinet's fortune at around twelve billion dollars. That would make the current US administration one of the richest in US history.

However, the disclosure of assets does not constitute a complete overview of income. Nor does it give any indications as to how those concerned could get rid of their assets in order to avoid possible conflicts of interest. US President Donald Trump triggered criticism for his many companies after his election as president, criticism also hits his family. Ivanka Trump's shares in the Trump International Hotel, which is located in the immediate vicinity of the White House, are considered a source of income, according to the report. That could become a problem: Interest groups or foreign government officials could deliberately stay in this luxury hotel in order to gain favor with the US government. Ivanka Trump wants to keep her shares in the hotel.

Kushner also gave many investments in mergers of several companies in which he is the only beneficiary.
