Trump blames fuss over tweeted star on Clinton

Posted:
WASHINGTON (AP) -

Trump campaign social media director Dan Scavino says in a statement posted on Donald Trump's Facebook page Monday evening that an anti-Hillary Clinton tweet that some have claimed was offensive was lifted from an anti-Clinton Twitter feed. He says it was never intended to offend anyone.

Critics have said the Twitter image criticizing Hillary Clinton appeared to depict the Star of David atop a pile of cash and was anti-Semitic.

Scavino says the social media graphic used this weekend was not created by the campaign nor was it sourced from an anti-Semitic site.

He said the star, which he described as a sheriff's badge fit with the theme of corrupt Hillary and that is why he selected it.

He says as social media director he would never offend anyone intentionally and therefore chose to remove the image.
