Kushner left high-level positions at more than 200 entities related to his family's real estate business, according to the documents, but will continue to reap benefits from many holdings related to the business empire he ran with his father.

President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence are not legally required to file new financial disclosures until next year.

Prior to the release, White House officials told reporters the documents would reveal the "incredible complexity and sophistication" of the assets and financial structures these "incredibly successful individuals" have. With this new role, Kushner's responsibilities in the White House now include reforming the Veterans Administration, foreign policy concerning Israel and Palestine, trade, remodeling workforce-training programs, and more.
