Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump continued his presidential pivot Saturday by deleting a tweet that featured a meme of Democratic rival Hillary Clinton emblazoned with a red Star of David containing the words “Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!”

Trump’s misstep comes just as the FBI is wrapping up its investigation into State Department email practices, including a just-concluded interview with Hillary Clinton that lasted about three hours.
