Trump Campaigns In Sharonville
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is defending his weekend tweet that many say was anti-Semitic. Trump told a crowd of supporters in Sharonville last night the tweet that featured what many saw as a Star of David placed over a picture of Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton and a pile of money with the words "Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!" should not have been taken down. Trump said the image was not anti-Semitic and was not a Star of David. He also focused his ire on the attorney general's decision not to charge Clinton over her use of a private email server.
He also listed what he says are inconsistencies between Clinton's public statements and the results of the FBI investigation into her email use.
Former Republican U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who is said to be on Trump's vice presidential short list, appeared at the rally. Trump said only that Gingrich would serve in the federal government.
Several Trump opponents staged demonstrations outside of the rally site, including Pam Smith of Middletown and Dominic Lijoi of Butler County.
Trump is expected to make a vice presidential selection later this month.
