According to Wonkette’s Rebecca Schoenkopf, Trump’s tweet shows a history of anti-Semitic comments and harassment of women and gay employees, pointing out that according to the real estate mogul’s former wife Ivana, Trump “from time to time reads a book of Hitler’s collected speeches, ‘My New Order,’ which he keeps in a cabinet by his bed.”
