The White House released on Friday the 2018 financial disclosure forms filed by Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, who both act as senior advisers to President Trump.

Details: The forms, which still require approval from White House counsel, show that Trump made $4 million from her investment in the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C., per Bloomberg. They also show that her income from her fashion and handbag brands — which she announced would shut down last year — dropped precipitously from 2017.

  • The forms show that, combined, Trump and Kushner took in between $28 million and $135 million in outside income. Both have not divested from their outside businesses during their White House tenure.

  • Similarly, many elements of this plan look hastily erected and easily abandoned once the spotlight moves on.

An estimated 2.5 million+ Americans have registered to vote on Facebook, Instagram, and Messenger, Facebook announced Monday. More than 733,000 Americans have registered to vote so far via Snapchat.

Why it matters: The broad reach of social media platforms makes them uniquely effective at engaging voters — especially younger voters who may not know how to register to vote or be civically engaged.
