Newsweek's Kurt Eichenwald reported today that there is a direct financial conflict between the interests of the Trump Organization in countries such as Turkey, Russia and India, and the interests of American national security.

He reports that there is no evidence of any illegal activity by the Trump Organization, but the conflicts could be an issue if Trump is elected president. The Trump campaign is criticizing Eichenwald's reporting.

Eichenwald joins Here & Now's Robin Young to discuss whether a President Trump's decisions would be based on what's best for Trump's company, or the country.
