Donald Trump slammed the media in a campaign speech in Ohio, and on social media, saying those who’ve attacked him as anti-Semitic for a campaign tweet that used a six-pointed star are way off base, and then posting on Twitter a photograph of a Disney “Frozen” shot that included the same symbol and throwing out the blunt question: What about this?

Trump’s original tweet, the one that sparked the cries of anti-Semitism, was an image of Hillary Clinton with $100 bills alongside a six-pointed star that included the words, “Most corrupt candidate ever!”

For that, many in the media slammed him for anti-Semitism. And Trump’s campaign shortly after took down the post.

But Trump decried its removal from his Twitter feed during a recent speech, and said, the Hill reported: “So one of my guys, who is married to a Jewish woman [social media director Dan Scavino], he put out a tweet talking about crooked Hillary Clinton and on the tweet was a star, a star, like a star. All of a sudden it turned out to be in the minds of the press … [the star of David, because] they said, ‘oh, it had money behind it.’ So that’s actually they’re racially profiling.”

Trump then said his campaign should have left the image up, rather than replacing it with a circle.

Trump, in his Ohio speech, also blasted the media for misinterpreting comments he made about Saddam Hussein in which he said the former dictator was a “bad guy,” but was intolerant of terrorists and killed them – and in so doing, kept at bay the growth of such groups as ISIS.

“I said, ‘bad guy, Saddam Hussein, bad guy.’ Then I said again, ‘Saddam Hussein is a bad guy, but he did one thing well, he killed terrorists.’ … [Then], I wake up,” he said, during the speech, the Hill reported, “I turn on the television … ‘Donald Trump loves Saddam Hussein. He loves Saddam Hussein.’ … I don’t love Saddam Hussein. I hate Saddam Hussein. But he was damn good at killing terrorists.”
