Trump And Family Didn’t Report More Than $250,000 In Gifts From Foreign Governments, House Report Says



Former President Donald Trump and his family members didn’t account for more than 100 gifts in excess of $250,000 given to them by foreign governments, according to multiple reports citing a House Oversight Committee report that found the disclosure failures “were much broader than previously known.”

Key Facts

Trump, his wife Melania, son-in-law Jared Kushner and daughter Ivanka all received gifts that were not included in required State Department disclosures, the New York Times reported.

The gifts include about $48,000 in items from Saudi Arabian government officials, a $3,040 driver and $460 putter then-Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe gave Trump, “a larger-than-life-sized painting” of the former president gifted to him by El Salvador President Nayib Bukele and a $450 decorative box Kushner received from a union activist in Egypt.

Trump and his family relinquished the gifts to the State Department, but failed to publicly disclose them according to reporting requirements for gifts from foreign officials valued at more than $415 that are designed to prevent foreign influence of federal government activity.
