HFA Statement on Trump's Use of Anti-Semitic Imagery

Hillary's campaign felt impelled to release a statement about the Hillary macro tweeted by the Trump campaign that used a six-pointed star.

Hillary for America Statement on Trump’s Use of Anti-Semitic Imagery

Hillary for America’s Director of Jewish Outreach Sarah Bard released the following statement after Donald Trump defended the use of anti-Semitic imagery that came from a white supremacist website:

“Donald Trump’s use of a blatantly anti-Semitic image from racist websites to promote his campaign would be disturbing enough, but the fact that it’s a part of a pattern should give voters major cause for concern. Now, not only won’t he apologize for it, he’s peddling lies and blaming others. Trump should be condemning hate, not offering more campaign behavior and rhetoric that engages extremists. The president should be someone who brings Americans together, not someone who sends signals and offers policies of division.”


Trump's campaign played dodgeball with the allegations.  No surprise.  Donald himself used his favorite go-to defenses: pretense, blaming the media, and claiming ignorance.  Just the kind of guy you want leading the country. 

Hillary, meanwhile, tweeted her own Independence Day message.
