UPDATE July 3rd: Mic reported on Sunday that the image was posted on a forum for white supremacists on 8chan on June 22nd. According to the The Daily Beast, the image first appeared on Twitter on June 15th, posted by the now-deleted account @FishBoneHead1. Trump's former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski discredited the reports that it was modeled after the Star of David, saying the star represented a sheriff's badge. The reaction to the image, Lewandowski said Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union," is "political correctness run amok."

Donald Trump tweeted, and then deleted, an image on Saturday morning that had a Jewish symbol over a pile of money and a picture of Hillary Clinton. He retweeted it a few hours later without the Star of David.

At 9:37 a.m. on Saturday, Trump tweeted this:

The Internet immediately recognized the Jewish Star of David in the image. Since Trump's anti-Semitic support has been pretty well reported, it did not go over well.

Trump deleted the tweet within two hours and retweeted it with it “Most Corrupt Candidate Ever” nickname written in a circle.

Since the original tweet has been deleted, we have all been robbed of responses like the ones to his Brexit tweet.
