Hillary Clinton's campaign blasted rival Donald Trump's positions on the Iran nuclear deal as "hypocrisy" in the wake of a report showing the GOP nominee's real estate organization once rented space to an Iranian bank with ties to terror and Tehran's nuclear program.

The Trump Organization purchased the General Motors Building on Fifth Avenue in 1998 and inherited tenant Bank Melli, which was listed by the Treasury Department among financial institutions "owned or controlled" by the Iranian government and subject to U.S. economic sanctions, the report from the Center for Public Integrity and International Consortium of Investigative Journalists found.

"This report exposes Trump's hypocrisy on Iran," Jake Sullivan, a senior policy adviser to the Clinton campaign, said in a written statement, the Center for Public Integrity reported.

"As with Cuba, he talks a big game but when it comes to making a buck, he'll deal with anyone. The conflicts of interest presented by Trump's business and his own desire to boost his bottom line above all else demonstrate clearly why voters should know more about Trump’s business deals and what they mean for how he'll govern."

Joe Hunter, spokesman for Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson, said in a statement to the group the "constant obsession with both Mr. Trump’s and Ms. Clinton's financial dealings all gets to the notion many voters want to reject, namely cronyism and deals and questionable ties that combine to create distrust and cynicism."

"Sadly, none of these really have much to do with issues Americans care about, other than trust, which is big one."

Trump's spokeswoman Hope Hicks told the New York Post that Trump's "sole focus is and will be on making our country great again. He has already committed to putting his assets in a blind trust and will have no involvement whatsoever in the Trump Organization."
