Trump celebrated his campaign fundraising even before announcing it, tweeting Tuesday night, "Raised a lot of money for the Republican Party".

Trump referred to a tweet he sent out Saturday that depicted a six-pointed star, which appeared to be a Star of David, alongside Clinton and against a backdrop of cash. The tweet was soon deleted and reposted, this time with a circle in the star's place.

"They realized it was edgy and could be abused".

As it turns out, the image was popularized on a white supremacist, neo-Nazi site. The image, wherever its origin, is a tasteless nod to anti-Semitic stereotypes of Jews as money hungry, miserly, and corrupt.

He also says that he is not anti-Semitic, noting that his daughter Ivanka had converted to Judaism for marriage and is raising her children Jewish. "It's our true friend over there". "And we're looking very, very strongly", Trump told Fox News in an interview. "That was nasty. Whoa".

"I am not saying it's Newt", Trump said of the VP search.

Donald Trump knows exactly what he is doing. "As you know, Bob was with me yesterday and he told me everything that he really would like to do and Bob is a terrific guy", Trump said.

But by now, Trump must know he is in the minority in saying the image is a mere sheriff's badge, or some star taken from Microsoft Shapes ― which his social media director insisted was the nexus of the whole controversy ― or just another iteration of something you'd find on the cover of a Disney coloring book.

"Please do not condescend to me and pretend you don't understand the imagery of a six-sided star when juxtaposed with money and accusations of financial dishonesty".

But Kushner did concede one small point. "I love the people of Ohio/ And we're going to start winning again".

"She did this with premeditation and with no concern at all about how it would affect your lives or the safety of your country", Miller said.

I disagree with Dana's criticism.

"Well, I watch the shows", Trump told "Meet the Press" moderator Chuck Todd in the interview. I have grandchildren that are Jewish.

Trump has since addressed the shootings in a statement Friday morning, expressing sorrow over the death of five Dallas police officers as well as the "senseless, tragic deaths" in Louisiana and Minnesota.

While not referring to Trump by name, Kasich nonetheless took a swipe at the real estate mogul, criticizing him for the incendiary comments that have become a hallmark of his campaign.

Trump has been conducting a relatively public vetting of vice presidential prospects. According to numerous reports, Donald Trump is considering Newt Gingrich as his running mate. The crowd roared with Trump's announcement as he went on to describe Gingrich as "tough" and someone who "gets it". "(Trump) is going to kick over the table".

Most of the House Democrats have supported Clinton's campaign throughout. Trump pointed out that Scavino's wife is Jewish.

Gingrich's defense puts him squarely at odds with other Republicans, including the current House Speaker, Paul Ryan.

Keep this in mind: In the past few days, the vast majority of people outside the campaign have conceded that the image was, indeed, anti-Semitic.

"This is his low-hanging fruit, and it's good, I'm not putting it down. They've obviously got to fix that".
