The Office of Government Ethics on Friday released President Donald Trump’s 2017 financial disclosure, which in broad strokes outlines Trump’s financial assets and liabilities.

Trump, who broke his campaign promise to release his tax returns as the Republican nominee for president — and who has still not committed to releasing any tax returns — often pointed to his 2015 and 2016 financial disclosures as sufficient sources of public information on his financial life.

However, there are numerous limitations on what journalists and others can glean from politicians’ financial disclosures.

Trump did not divest himself from his sprawling business empire, instead announcing on Jan. 11 that he would hand control of his financial world over to his sons via a revocable trust. ProPublica reported in April that the trust had been amended in February to allow Trump to withdraw funds at any time from any of his businesses without public disclosure.
