( CNN) The writer of a new report that alleges Donald Trump’s businesses overseas have conflicts with America’s interests told Wednesday that the Republican presidential nominee “makes money by aiding the people whose interests don’t coincide with America’s.”

“The interests of these business, the interests of these politicians, often go directly against the interests of American national security. So right now you have Donald Trump in a situation where he makes money by aiding the people whose interests don’t coincide with America’s, ” Newsweek senior novelist Kurt Eichenwald told CNN’s Chris Cuomo and Alisyn Camerota on “New Day, ” adding subsequently, “The important thing here is this is an entanglement that can’t be unwound.”
