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

Trump took 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 posted Saturday quickly drew scrutiny online, raising accusations of anti-Semitism.

Trump deleted the tweet later in the day and replaced it with a version that uses a circle in place of the star.

A Trump campaign spokeswoman did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
