Donald Trump created a stir on social media by posting online an image of Hillary Clinton with what appeared to be a Star of David and a background of dollar bills.

The Republican presidential candidate took Mrs Clinton’s old Twitter avatar celebrating her status as the first presumptive female presidential nominee and added a background of dollar bills along with the words “Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!” written over a six-point star.

The image quickly drew scrutiny online, raising accusations of anti-Semitism.

Mr Trump, who has made a number of controversial remarks about ethnic minority communities, deleted the tweet later in the day.

He later replaced it, tweeting a new version that uses a circle in place of the star, without an explanation as to why the first was deleted.
