Presumptive Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has received major media backlash this morning after tweeting out an image of Hillary Clinton that “accidentally” featured the Star of David – THE symbol of Jewish oppression and torture.
Almost immediately after the media caught wind of Trump’s extremely inappropriate tweet, people took to social media to slam The Donald, causing him to alter his tweet to make the Star of David into a full circle. Not before the original tweet was screencapped, however. Below is the original image next to the altered one.
According to NY Daily News:
“The media can call it populism, or nationalism, but what Trump is selling is bigotry. His vision is that America was better when white people were solely in power. Trump wants to ban Muslims, deport Mexicans, and use racial profiling. It is time for the press to be honest.”
So what exactly is the solution to America’s Trump problem? Should the media continue to bring light to his inexcusable actions? Or, should they refuse to report on his obviously purposeful actions?
What we do know is that Trump has control of America’s ignorant, and now that we can physically see how many ignorant Americans there are, the people are rightfully scared of what may be to come.
Now, check out what some social media users had to say about this supposed faux pas:
@justiceputnam says that Trump chose the Star of David Because The Muslim symbol was too narrow to hold the text.
@ElDavismo accuses Trump of “getting in touch with you inner Nazi.”
