Donald Trump's new tower in Mumbai, business across the world under terror threat
Los Angeles : Security experts on Monday noted that now Donald Trump is US President, several of his businesses around the world face an increased risk of terror threats, especially in areas that were previously targeted by violence.
The report suggested that militants could target buildings bearing his name in gold, abduct workers associated with his enterprises for ransom or worse.
Answering to threat questions, the Trump Organization statement read: “It has extensive protocols in place at our Trump-owned and -managed properties in the United States and abroad. Our team continues to work very closely with local law enforcement. We are also working in tandem with the local developers at Trump-branded properties worldwide to ensure that all residents, guests and associates remain safe and secure."

A Trump-named residential tower is under construction in Mumbai. In 2008, the city was hit by an alleged terror attack by Pakistani militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba that killed 166 people.
Mumbai police spokesman Ashok Dudhe said he had no knowledge of any additional security around the tower.
There are other properties that are being built in Manila, Philippines, a soon-to-open golf course in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates which may be under terror threat.

Talking about the security of the first family and Trump Organization, Secret Service spokeswoman Cathy Milhoan said, “The agency does not comment on our protective operations."
However, experts also believe that threats will become more serious if Trump's work intersects with his duties in the Oval Office and a militant group takes it personally.
