The Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump has been criticised for using an ‘anti-Semitic’ campaign advert.

Trump was condemned for using election material which asserts the “establishment has trillions of dollars at stake in this election” and features photos of billionaire George Soros, Federal Reserve chairwoman Janet Yellen and Goldman Sachs chief executive Lloyd Blankfein, all of whom are Jewish.
