Hillary Clinton's campaign unleashed a barrage of questions for Donald Trump on Wednesday following a report about potential conflicts of interest for his business empire should he be elected president.
A Newsweek story cited on Clinton's Twitter page questions whether the billionaire developer, as president, would sever ties to the Trump Organization. The report notes that Trump's business has "deep ties to global financiers, foreign politicians and even criminals, although there is no evidence the Trump Organization has engage in any illegal activities."
Clinton seized on the report, asking whether Trump would cut ties to his company, questioning what business relationships would be shown in his unreleased tax returns and asking whether company relationships would affect his foreign policy decisions.
The barrage comes as Clinton has lost ground in recent polls, with her average lead in a four-way race narrowing to 1.8 points, from 3.9 points on Sept. 1, according to RealClearPolitics. Clinton's campaign has faced criticism about transparency after waiting two days to disclose the Democratic nominee's pneumonia diagnosis until she stumbled and needed help getting into a car while leaving a 9/11 ceremony on Sunday.
Possible conflicts of interest from the Clinton family's charity have faced intense scrutiny from Trump and the media. Former President Bill Clinton said last month the foundation would stop taking foreign and corporate money if his wife became president.
A Trump campaign spokeswoman did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Here is the full string of tweets from the Clinton campaign:

It's pretty clear: Trump's spent his life unscrupulously looking out for his own wallet above all. Why would that change as president?
