Washington – Hillary Clinton’s campaign says a tweet from Donald Trump that appeared to feature the Star of David is “disturbing” and part of a pattern that “should give voters major cause for concern.”
Sarah Bard, Clinton’s director for Jewish outreach, says Trump should be “condemning hate,” not blaming others. Bard says a president should be someone who “brings Americans together, not someone who sends signals and offers policies of division.”
The campaign’s comments come after Trump blamed the media for the controversy involving an anti-Clinton tweet that appeared to depict the symbol of Judaism, a six-pointed star, atop a pile of cash.
The tweet was sent from Trump’s official account Saturday, then deleted. A new version was later posted with a circle in place of the star.
