A Newsweek report published on Wednesday revealed potential conflicts of interest the Trump Organization has that could jeopardize national security if the Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump were to become president.

The report outlined the Trump Organization’s connections toforeign businesses and governments and raised questions over whether the Republican presidential candidate would sever ties to these partners if his White House bid is successful.

The report specifically cited the organization’s ties to the Russian and Iranian governments.

“If Trump moves into the White House and his family continues to receive any benefit from the company, during or even after his presidency, almost every foreign policy decision he makes will raise serious conflicts of interest and ethical quagmires,” Newsweek’s Kurt Eichenwald wrote in the report.
