Presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump on Wednesday tweeted an image of a Disney book featuring a six-pointed star in an attempt to draw comparisons to an anti-Hillary Clinton image he tweeted this past weekend.
“Where is the outrage for this Disney book? Is this the ‘Star of David’ also? Dishonest media!” he tweeted, with an image of a book from Disney’s “Frozen.”
The book features a six-pointed star with the words “With 50 stickers!” written on it.

Presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton didn’t miss the opportunity to mock Trump over the post.
“Do you want to build a strawman?” Clinton tweeted, swiping at Trump with a play on the movie’s song “Do You Want to Build a Snowman?”

The “Frozen” image appears to have originated from a Trump Reddit feed.

Trump has been fighting backlash after tweeting an image of his likely rival with a background of $100 bills and the words “Most corrupt candidate ever!” in a six-pointed star. The image had previously appeared on a message board for white supremacists.
Many suggested the image was anti-Semitic, but during a rally Wednesday, Trump sought to put blame on the media. He suggested news outlets were “racially profiling” by linking the star in the image to the Star of David. The tweet was taken down and replaced with an image using a circle instead of the star, but Trump said Wednesday the tweet should not have been removed.
