Trump hammered for appealing to anti-Semites with ‘dog whistle’ Hillary Star of David post

Published

While most people were taking the 4th of July holiday weekend off, presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump was up bright and early on Twitter, claiming he has filled his speakers roster for the GOP convention before turning his Twitter guns on Hillary Clinton with a graphic that has people scratching their heads.

The day after the Clinton campaign announced it had raised more than $68.5 million for Hillary for America, the Democratic National Committee and state parties in the month of June, Trump took a back-handed shot at Clinton for her fundraising prowess using a Star of David on a field on money graphic.

(UPDATE:  The Trump campaign deleted the tweet, and replaced it with another  featuring a circle instead of the Star of David.  No explanation was given.)

The tweet, which can be seen below, reads: “History made. Most corrupt candidate ever,” with a “Fox News Poll” banner, accompanied by a photo of the former Secretary of States next to the religious symbol.

"The Land of Enchantment has voted for a Republican presidential candidate only once since 1992. With a considerable nonwhite voter population and all-Democratic congressional delegation, it’s not exactly fertile ground for a surprise GOP victory," the report notes before adding that Parscale feels they can make inroads this go-around.

Oil prices surged more than 10 percent Monday after attacks on two Saudi Arabian plants that slashed output in the world's top producer by half, with Donald Trump blaming Iran and raising the possibility of a military strike on the country.

West Texas Intermediate jumped 10.68 percent to $60.71 and Brent climbed 11.77 percent to $67.31 in early Asia trading following the blasts at facilities run by state-owned giant Aramco.
