Issue #1: Conflict Of Interest
Newsweek: If Donald Trump is elected president, will he and his family permanently sever all connections to the Trump Organization, a sprawling business empire that has spread a secretive financial web across the world? Or will Trump instead choose to be the most conflicted president in American history, one whose business interests will constantly jeopardize the security of the United States?Throughout this campaign, the Trump Organization, which pumps potentially hundreds of millions of dollars into the Trump family’s bank accounts each year, has been largely ignored. As a private enterprise, its businesses, partners and investors are hidden from public view, even though they are the very people who could be enriched by—or will further enrich—Trump and his family if he wins the presidency.

Maddow: No easy answers to resolving Trump's conflicts of interest Rachel Maddow looks at the Donald Trump's business interests like those highlighted in Kurt Eichenwald's Newsweek piece and notes that a blind trust would not resolve conflicts for a "President Trump" and neither would handing the company to his kids.
Dick Cheney makes alot of money from Halliburton who got no-bid Government Contracts for Iraqi Oil totaling over 39 Billion (i.e. the contracts were given to them without competition for rates thus we have no idea if they overcharged us by billions). The reason Dick Cheney is not in trouble for this... actually, I can't answer that question since Cheney's crimes are just too numerous for one thing not to add to the others. But in theory, Cheney is not in trouble for this because these payments are "deferred income from when he was in Halliburton". To say that Cheney had an agreement beforehand with Halliburton for Iraqi Oil would be a conspiracy despite the evidence we have of oil war being planned for Iraq before 9/11 because our documents don't go that far (or maybe they do):

In any case, Donald Trumps link to his business isn't hidden like Cheney's link to Halliburton. It's all out in the open AND his kids are family;
Without a COMPLETE termination of any links between Trump and his organization he can't be trusted to make foreign policy decision without the thought of making profit or harming a country to harm a company's profit there for revenge reasons. Thus the conflict of interest problem is a very big one.
Chris Hayes: What we don't know about Donald Trump When it comes to what matters most, we know almost nothing about Donald Trump. And that's a very scary reality.
