"Well, no way folks. Clinton, money, the most campaign corrupt person,” Duke added.
 
Hillary Clinton's campaign has slammed Trump for sharing an image Saturday that included a six-pointed star, a figure that appears on the Israeli flag and is commonly associated with Judaism, in a tweet labeling her the "most corrupt candidate ever" along with images of $100 bills. The tweet was deleted hours later and replace with an image showing a circle instead of a star.
 
Trump late Monday pushed back on "false attacks by Hillary Clinton trying to link the Star of David with a basic star, often used by sheriffs who deal with criminals." Democrats, including Clinton's campaign, have blasted the tweet as anti-Semitic, an argument Trump's campaign has rejected.
