President Donald Trump's daughter and son in law made at least 82 million dollars in outside income while serving as senior White House advisers previous year thanks to investment deals from companies they had previously led, news reports said on Tuesday.

She also made $3.9 million from the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C. and more than $2 million from severance from the Trump Corp. previous year.

Per the Washington Post, ethics experts are concerned that the extraordinary outside cash flow could create intense conflicts of interest.

The financial disclosures released by the White House and filed with the US Office of Government Ethics routinely show both assets and debts compiled in broad ranges between low and high estimates, making it hard to precisely chart the rise and fall of the financial portfolios of federal government officials.

The White House released the financial disclosures for Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner Monday as President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un met in a highly anticipated summit in Singapore. The yearly payments will total $1.5 million, according to the filings, which was a change made in consultation with Office of Government Ethics officials to reduce her "interest in the performance of the business".

Trump and Kushner aren't the only White House staffers raking in the millions, however.

Ms Trump also reported $2m in earnings from the Trump Organisation and a $289,000 advance for her book, Women Who Work.

A series of interim financial reports previous year showed that Kushner had increased lines of credit with Bank of America, New York Community Bank, and Signature Bank, each from at least $1 million to $5 million. In all, he took in at least $70 million, the Post said.

Before entering the White House, Kushner sold his stake in 666 Fifth Ave., the Kushner Cos.' Manhattan building plagued by debt that exceeded $1 billion, to a trust controlled by his mother.
