Trump Goes On Rant About Anti-Semitic Star Tweet: We ‘Shouldn’t Have Taken It Down!’
Donald Trump went on a lengthy rant during his Cincinnati rally tonight about the anti-Semitic tweet that engulfed his campaign in controversy for days.
Trump repeatedly shouted, of the Star of David, “it’s a star!” He echoed his own campaign surrogates by saying it looked like a sheriff’s star and said it’s the “dishonest” media that’s doing the profiling here.
