The Short: Trump Used A Star Of David To Accuse Clinton Of Being Corrupt
The Long: Beneath the image were part of the results from a Fox News poll on June 29 that reported 58% of respondents described Clinton as corrupt.
Trump’s former campaign manager, Corey Lewandowksi, told CNN on Sunday the symbol was similar to a sheriff’s bade.
In a statement, Trump referred to “these false attacks by Hillary Clinton trying to link the Star of David with a basic star.” He also said the “basic star” is “often used by sheriffs who deal with criminals and criminal behavior.” Trump added that the “real questions” have to do with Bill Clinton “meeting secretly with” Attorney General Loretta Lynch, who is investigating Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while serving as secretary of state.
“It was lifted from an anti-Hillary Twitter user where countless images appear,” Scavino said in the statement, adding that the star “is available under Microsoft’s ‘shapes.’” On Monday, Clinton’s director of Jewish outreach, Sarah Bard, released the following statement about Trump’s attempt to cover up the tweet by saying the shape depicted a sheriff’s star, rather than the Star of David.
