This disclosure form shows how Ivanka makes millions of dollars without lifting a finger

Published

on

First daughter Ivanka Trump on Tuesday drew widespread ridicule when she attacked Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) for supporting ideas such as a universal basic income for all Americans.

“I don’t think most Americans, in their heart, want to be given something,” Ivanka said during a Fox News interview. “People want to work for what they get. So, I think that this idea of a guaranteed minimum is not something most people want.”

However, Ivanka herself makes millions of dollars every year without lifting a single finger.

As Trump biographer Tim O’Brien notes on Twitter, Ivanka Trump’s financial disclosure form shows that her income streams largely derive from assets that do not require her to put in any kind of hard work.

“Ivanka Trump gets lucrative annual streams of income, rents and capital gains — $1 million here, $5 million there — from her biz, her husband’s biz, and her father’s biz that she largely gets for just sitting there,” observes O’Brien.

For example, her 2018 financial disclosure form shows that Ivanka made more than $5 million in rents and royalties from the Ivanka M. Trump Business Trust, which was set up after she took a job at her father’s White House and whose assets are overseen by relatives of husband Jared Kushner, as reported by the New York Times in 2017.

Other sources of income include nearly $4 million in hotel-related revenue from an LLC set up to lower the Trump family’s future estate tax burdens, and over $2 million in salary and severance from the Trump Payroll Corp.

BUSTED: Trump said no one saw pandemic coming — but his own officials admitted it kept them up at night

Published

on

President Donald Trump has tried to claim that the coronavirus pandemic came out of nowhere and that his administration couldn't have possibly been better prepared for it.

However, CNN reports that past statements from his own administration's officials show that the threat of a pandemic hammering the United States was long seen as a danger that the country was not equipped to handle.

"Of course, the thing that people ask: 'What keeps you most up at night in the biodefense world?' Pandemic flu, of course," said Trump HHS Secretary Alex Azar nearly one year ago.

Trump’s path to re-election ‘smashed to splinters’ as his only achievement is swallowed up by the pandemic: report

Published

In a piece for Politico, Ben White writes that Donald Trump was going into November's election with only one achievement under his belt -- a healthy economy -- and now he has nothing left to run if he wants to be re-elected.

With all of the gains made in the stock market long gone due to the coronavirus pandemic and the collapse of oil prices, White claims that the president's campaign strategy lies in tatters.

"The fundamental pillars of Donald Trump’s presidency — a hot economy, strong job growth and a rocking stock market — are all being smashed to splinters by the ravaging coronavirus, which has shuttered much of the nation and now officially ended a streak of 113 months of job gains dating back to the end of the Great Recession a decade ago," he wrote before noting the explosion of unemployment claims -- over ten million so far -- that has the country reeling.
