    Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump speaks during a campaign stop in West Chester, Ohio on March 13. The Economic Intelligence Unit released its global risk assessment, saying a Trump president could hurt the global economy.

    A British research organization is warning that a Donald Trump presidency may have negative effects on the global economy, NBC News reported.

    The Economist Intelligence Unit released its updated global risk assessment, ranking the election of Trump a 12 on a scale of one to 25. 

    The firm cited several reasons, including Trump’s stance on free trade, his accusations of China being a “currency manipulator,” his comments about killing terrorists’ families and his proposal to move troops into Syria to fight ISIS.
