Ever since announcing his candidacy for president last June, Donald Trump has been surrounded by constant controversy. Whether it's referring to illegal immigrants from Mexico as "rapists" or mocking the disabled, Trump can't seem to hold back on the campaign trail.

Trump latest fail

With the Republican and Democratic conventions scheduled for later this month, a Trump match-up with Hillary Clinton will follow as the American people get ready to witness one of the most controversial elections in history. Trump and Clinton have no love lost for each other, as the two candidates trade jabs on a daily basis.

On Saturday morning, Trump was quickly criticized for going on an anti-Semitic attack against Clinton, as reported by The Hill on July 2.

Using his usual form of attack, Trump went on a Twitter tirade to kick off his weekend, but one Tweet received so much criticism that he was forced to delete it. With an image of Clinton's face in front of a pile of money, a red Star of David was positioned next to her, with "Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!" written inside.

Within minutes, social media exploded, as Twitter users were quick to point out Trump's tweet.

"19 minutes after Trump's anti-Semitic dog whistling tweet, and it's still up," one Tweet read. Another tweet, this time from political journalist Ana Marie Cox, stated, "Symbolism here is pretty... unsubtle." Other Twitter users took a more humorous approach. The former host of "The Apprentice" eventually pulled down his Tweet, only to post a similar message, this time replacing the Star of David with a red circle.

General election showdown

Trump has weathered the storm of controversy for the last 12 months, and while the criticism would have doomed a typical candidate, the billionaire real estate mogul was able to become the last man standing in the GOP primary.

According to the Real Clear Politics most recent rolling average, Trump trails Clinton by just under five points, 44.8 percent to 40.3 percent. Trump has inched closer in recent days, but is expected to fall further behind following the official conclusion of the Democratic primary.
