Trump's income from the Trump International Hotel in Washington, which has come under scrutiny for being a top choice for foreign dignitaries, almost doubled, from about $20 million in the 2016 report to just over $40 million previous year.
President Donald Trump reported that he reimbursed personal attorney Michael Cohen for costs apparently incurred in paying adult film star Stormy Daniels for a non-disclosure agreement, according to a federally required annual financial disclosure form released by the Office of Government Ethics Wednesday. Past year it took the agency about two days to make Trump's disclosure form public after it was submitted.
The document did not explicitly state what the payments were for. "The information provided meets the disclosure requirement for a reportable liability".
It will also be scrutinized for any sign of the hush money payment made to Daniels.
Trump's attorney, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, earlier this month said that Trump reimbursed Cohen $130,000 for the payment to Clifford before Trump's 2016 election.

The form will cover all of 2017 and some of 2018. The reimbursement was paid in full in 2017, and Cohen had requested the money for expenses incurred in 2016. Trump had earlier denied knowledge of such a payment.
The Office of Government Ethics "has concluded that, based on the information provided as a note to part 8, the payment made to Mr. Cohen is required to be reported as a liability", the agency's acting director David Apol said in a letter to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
Trump has been secretive about his personal finances. Last year's report showed he had $1.4 billion in assets.
The exact figure specified in the financial disclosure is said to be between $100,000 and $250,000.
