Trump Tries To Defend Star Of David Tweet With ‘Frozen’ Coloring Book

AP

On Wednesday evening, Donald Trump renewed attempts to defend a tweet his campaign published on Saturday calling Hillary Clinton the “most corrupt candidate ever” in a Star of David.

Trump published a tweet Wednesday night with an image of a “Frozen” themed coloring book that included a six point star on its cover.

The Clinton campaign responded on Twitter with a “Frozen” pun.

Trump also went off on critics of his since-deleted tweet during a campaign rally in Ohio, repeatedly telling the crowd that “it’s a star,” not specifically a Star of David.

He accused the media of stirring up a controversy.

“They’re racially profiling. They’re profiling, not us,” he said, referring to media coverage of the tweet. “Because why are they bringing this up?”

He said that members of the press “are sick people.”

Trump defended his social media manager, Dan Scavino, for publishing the tweet, and said that he told his employees at the campaign that they should have never deleted the tweet.
