Kushner reported at least $US27 million and as much as $US135 million in outstanding liabilities. Federal rules require top officials to report income, assets and liabilities in broad ranges. He reported more than $US5 million in capital gains from the sale of a shopping mall in the Bronx, New York.

The Trumps and Kushner retained their ownership in their private businesses upon entering the White House, a decision that critics say has left them open to conflicts of interest and influence by foreign countries.
