Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump released their personal finances this week, revealing a sizable difference between the presumptive GOP nominee and the former Secretary of State’s 2015 paychecks.

Clinton’s personal financial disclosure report reveals that she earned about $5 million in royalties for book Hard Choices, and, before declaring her plans to run for the Democratic presidential nomination, around $1.5 million in paid speeches, according to The Washington Post.

In addition, her husband, former president Bill Clinton, disclosed an income of $5.25 million from the 22 paid speeches he delivered in 2015.

On the other side of the aisle, Trump claimed that his annual income is more than $557 million, according to the Post. The sizable number does not include dividends, interest, capital gains, rents or royalties.

“I filed my PFD, which I am proud to say is the largest in the history of the FEC,” Trump said in a statement. “Despite the fact that I am allowed extensions, I have again filed my report, which is 104 pages, on time. Bernie Sanders has requested, on the other hand, an extension for his small report.”

The Trump campaign’s statement said that the businessman had seen a revenue increase of $190 million dollars year over year, and cites his net worth as “in excess” of $10 billion dollars.

In response to Trump’s larger-than-life disclosure, Clinton’s camp continued to hammer the real estate mogul about releasing his income tax returns.

“The true test for Donald Trump is whether he will adhere to the precedent followed by every presidential candidate in the modern era and make his tax returns available, as Hillary Clinton has done,” spokeswoman Christina Reynolds said in a statement to Reuters.
