To even compare the tweet with a Star of David in a positive or negative way is just sickening.

Next they will say the sheriffs star is a Jewish star.
It was a retweet from a neo-Nazi. As was the other controversial tweet about the bogus black crime rates. What part of that do you not understand?

Why is Trump following neo-Nazis to begin with?

the image was created by an anti-semite. the intent was for the star to represent the star of david/judaism ( and, according to another poster who believes in a jewish conspiracy, the fact that it was red specifically relates to the rothchilds ).

While Trumps wants to blame Media for reporting it..It was actually the Jewish Community elders who made the original OUTCRY!!

Trump loves to Blame media..BUT uses them constantly to exploit + his Blathering @rally's .. I watched him today..actually he blathered away..constant repeat talking like a junior high kid ..repeating..using childish terms..loving all those "Haters" in his crowd...

He's simply a SLEEZE Bag..I simply cannot get my head around any Foreign Country accepting this IDIOT as the leader of the Free World? But then again..Biased/Haters/Bigots/ love how Trumps calls names...Liar's Corrupt are the most common....Look in Trump's mirror..Liar +++ then Corrupt is being constantly proven ..Fraudualant Business Practice..yet his Lover's think his skill will Help them?? Yikes..Most supporters are lucky they never got duped by the Con Man

Trump has absolutely NO Clue on diplomacy..much less measured rhetoric..No filter..NO ability to control himself...Inabiity to control one's emotions means disaster...when it come's to on'e Countries decisions...Talk about Natation Security..WW111 in the offing..never mind his economic presentations cost ing USA Trillions?? I thought GOP worried about the Debt???

GOP is far too targeted against Hillary for past 2 years +++ NOW They are forced to deal with Trump..Good Luck with that..Even Paul Ryan looks like his suit has become "Cheap" in the past 6 months!! IMO
You nor anyone knows where that image originated nor where Trump's people got it, stop acting like you do. The original story said they only looked at ONE single hate site where they saw the image, that doesn't mean it originated there or that's where they got it from. This is ALL manufactured, paid for childishness.

No it was not! It was not a retweet from a neo-Nazi. Just making things up now.

There are hundreds of arguments against Trump but if you have to go here it only shows you are an ignorant fool.
No.
Those who would deny this issue as being non-racist are scum and are examples of everything that is wrong with this country.
While there are hundreds of other examples of Trump's poor leadership abilities, this one alone is egregious enough that he should quit the race if he has any decency left in him.

What Trump did was inexcusable, especially for a person who wants to lead us all. Hundred of rotten racists may have done the same, but none of them are running for President Of The United States Of America, the single most powerful position on earth.

Trump has covered himself in neo-Nazi scum. Intentionally and unapologetically. He is not fit for the job he seeks.

I'm sorry that it makes you uncomfortable, but yes, both of these tweets originated with neo-Nazis. Others have already shown the site where the Star of David tweet originated, and here is where the bogus black crime statistics originated.

We Found Where Donald Trump's "Black Crimes" Graphic Came From - Little Green Footballs

The guy who created that one is the guy who said we should have listened to that Austrian guy with the little mustache in the 1930s and '40s. It doesn't get any more Nazi skinhead than that.

These are the guys the GOP presumptive candidate for president is listening to and quoting. It's despicable. And even more despicable that Trump supporters would defend it.

Nope, you are the one making things up.

Quote:
"The image was previously featured on 8chan's /pol/ — an Internet message board for the alt-right, a digital movement of neo-Nazis, anti-Semites and white supremacists newly emboldened by the success of Trump's rhetoric — as early as June 22, over a week before Trump's team tweeted it. Though the thread where the meme was featured no longer exists, you can find it by searching the URL in Archive.is, a "time capsule of the internet" that saves unalterable text and graphic of web pages. Doing so allows you to see the thread on /pol/ as it originally existed."

It later emerged that a Twitter user, @FishBoneHead1, had used the original image as early as June 15. That account, now defunct, "regularly tweeted out anti-Clinton and right-leaning messages and images," according to the Associated Press, including several cited by mic.com that most people would consider racist or anti-Semitic. Here’s a screen capture of the June 15 tweet.

again, it's trump's camp that claims they got it from an "anti-hillary" site but..... refuse to give a specific when asked. to date there has yet to be a site presented that featured the image before july 2 that didn't have a degree of anti-semitism.
