Presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump reacted on Twitter to the backlash over a photo-shopped image he posted featuring presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
Dishonest media is trying their absolute best to depict a star in a tweet as the Star of David rather than a Sheriff's Star, or plain star!

Trump previously tweeted an image of Clinton with cash in the background and the text reading, “Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!” over what pundits referred to as the Star of David. He later removed that tweet.
After political pundits and journalists questioned the image, Trump posted a revised image with the text over a circle rather than the star.

Yes, the GOP nominee really did put a Star of David over a pile of money and an accusation of corruption. https://t.co/BoIi1S2xUW

Trump’s former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, who is now a political commentator on CNN, reacted to the backlash over the photo-shopped image on Sunday, also arguing it is simply a Sheriff’s star.
