The image appeared on an internet message board for the alt-right, a digital movement of neo-Nazis, anti-Semites and white supremacists often associated with Trump's candidacy, Mic reported on Sunday.

The image was featured on the message board as early as June 22 — more than a week before it was tweeted by Trump, according to the news outlet. The name of the image was HillHistory.jpg, which Mic reported could be linked to the neo-Nazi code for "Heil Hitler."

Trump's tweet on Saturday featured a photo of the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee commonly used by her campaign that reads "History made," superimposed over a pile of $100 bills. Written inside a six-pointed star that resembled the Star of David — a symbol commonly associated with Judaism — were the words "Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!"

The tweet drew quick backlash from people asking why the Star of David was used on the image. Many people called the tweet anti-Semitic and took to Twitter to question or criticize Trump.

Two hours after the initial post, Trump tweeted a different version of the same image, using a circle instead of a star. He then deleted the original post.
