Donald Trump is again insisting that his negative tweet about Hillary Clinton did not feature a Star of David atop a pile of cash.

Trump said Wednesday at a rally in Cincinnati that it was just "a regular star or maybe a sheriff's star" and that he wished his campaign had not deleted the image.

Trump received criticism for the image of the star, which some had deemed anti-Semitic. He insists that the media "was racist" for assuming that the image had Jewish connotations.

He also says that he is not anti-Semitic, noting that his daughter Ivanka had converted to Judaism for marriage and is raising her children Jewish.

The rant about the tweet came amid a long list of Trump complaints about the media's coverage of several recent controversies, including his apparent praise of Saddam Hussein and the size of his crowds.
