Trump finally responded to allegations of antisemitism that followed the presumptive GOP presidential nominee tweeting out a picture of Hillary Clinton, piles of money, and a six-sided star on Saturday.
On Monday morning Trump insisted that the star was meant to represent a sheriff’s badge (a nod to the ongoing FBI investigation into Clinton’s old private email server) or a “plain star” and not a Star of David.
Trump took to Twitter, again, this time in his own defense:
Dishonest media is trying their absolute best to depict a star in a tweet as the Star of David rather than a Sheriff's Star, or plain star!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 4, 2016
Trump’s campaign adviser Ed Brookover was peddling the same line over at CNN Monday morning, saying that there was, “never any intention of anti-Semitism” and that Trump had denounced antisemitism in the past.
That would be the one with the star, not the circle.
