The controversial graphic of what appeared to be a Star of David in an anti-Hillary Clinton tweet from Donald Trump reportedly surfaced 10 days earlier on an Internet message board loaded with anti-Semitic conspiracy theories and neo-Nazi ideology.

Trump was accused of anti-Semitism after the graphic, featuring the six-point star and a pile of cash along with Clinton's image, and the phrase "most corrupt candidate ever," appeared in a tweet on his feed Saturday.  It was deleted two hours later and replaced with the same meme in which the star was swapped for a circle.

On June 15, a user with the handle @FishBoneHead1, posted the same graphic, according to NBC News, which reports the account owner's bio reads: "Comedian : Probably offend you if you are Liberal, Politically Correct, Feminist, Democrat or Piers Morgan."

The news was first reported by the site Mic. NBC News reported in January that Trump retweeted a photo from an apparent neo-Nazi supporter's account that included anti-Semitic imagery and quotes from Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels. That tweet has since been deleted.
