Republican presumptive presidential nominee Donald Trump tweeted a picture of presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton featuring a pile of money and the words “Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!” inside a Star of David, on Saturday.
Speech bubbles are usually circular-shaped, hence the name.
But that is probably not the reason that the tweet was deleted and republished with the quote in a circle less than an hour after it was originally posted:

I don’t even know if it’s symbolism or stupidity (both?) at this point, but it’s been pointed out on Twitter that whoever redid the image didn’t even bother to delete the star, and merely covered it with the circle. If you look closely you can see the tip of the start still poking out.
He just put the circle on top of the Star of David. You can still see its points. pic.twitter.com/PjNSp38T3X— southpaw (@nycsouthpaw) July 2, 2016
