Ivanka Trump made $3.9 million from the Trump International Hotel in 2017, according to newly-released financial disclosures. The documents, which Politico dug through, also reveal that she earned at least $5 million from businesses connected to her retail brand.

Why it matters: Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner are both working as senior advisors to President Trump without pay for those roles. However, the disclosures show that the couple is still receiving payments from their outside businesses and the Trump Organization.

By the numbers: According to Politico, Ivanka also reported receiving $2 million from Trump Payroll Corp., and $289,000 from an advance on her book, "Women Who Work," which was published last year.

  • Ivanka donated those funds to a charitable trust for oversees causes. Politico reports that there's no also no sign that she received royalties in connection with the book.
