New documents released by the White House show just how wealthy Donald Trump’s circle of advisers are.
The financial disclosures of 180 of Trump’s top aides, which were made public on last night, give a snapshot of their finances and assets as they entered the White House.
Among the list of high-profile advisers are Trump’s daughter Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner who are holding onto their real estate portfolio and business assets – worth an estimated $740 million – while they both work in the White House.
But the disclosures also gave us insight into the finances of Trump’s other top advisors, such as Kellyanne Conway, Steve Bannon, and Sean Spicer.
Steve Bannon disclosed assets between $13 million and $56 million, including his influential political consultancy, Bannon Strategic Advisors Inc., worth as much as $25 million.
Bannon also disclosed that he earned slightly less than $200,000 last year as executive director of Breitbart News Network LLC, before he resigned to join Trump’s campaign last August.
Trump’s senior counselor disclosed in her filings that she made over $800,000 last year from her consulting firm. She has assets worth between $10 million and as much as $39 million.
Press Secretary Sean Spicer reported rental income of between $50,000 and $165,000 for four investment properties he owns in Northern Virginia. The properties are worth at least $1.1 million. His main source of income last year was working for the Republican National Committee as communications director and as a chief strategist for which he earned $260,000.
