Jared And Ivanka Are Millions Deeper In Debt After Since Joining The White House

Presidential advisers and family members Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump have taken on millions of dollars in additional debt in the year since they joined the White House, Politico reported Tuesday, citing Trump’s financial disclosure forms.

Kushner has drawn on three credit lines, increasing their limits to a range of $5 million to $25 million.

Politico estimated that their combined total debts has soared in the past year from a range of $19-98 million to a range of $31-155 million.

Trump’s financial disclosure forms don’t explain the source of Kushner’s increasing debt, but it likely has to do with the difficulties his real estate business has encountered in the past two years.

The report does include some good news for the couple: Their credit card debt to Visa dropped from the range of $100,000-$250,000 to the range between $50,000-$100,000.
