After accusing the media of “racially profiling,” Donald Trump on Wednesday continued to defend an anti-Semitic tweet he had posted that featured the Jewish Star of David ― and used the Disney movie “Frozen” to back himself up.
At a rally earlier in the day, Trump stood by the original tweet he had posted on Saturday, which featured a Star of David placed on top of a pile of $100 bills to accuse Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton of corruption.
He railed against “the dishonest media” for drawing attention to the image and supposedly creating the controversy, and claimed it was not offensive toward Jewish people because he has Jewish family members.
Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton’s campaign skewered Trump’s “Frozen” defense with a reference to a song from the movie.
To reiterate, the presumptive GOP presidential nominee used the graphic on a Disney coloring book to defend an anti-Semitic image that may have originated on white supremacist message boards.
