Last weekend Donald Trump tweeted the now infamous Crooked Hillary Picture with her smug face over a background of Benjamins and a Red star. The text within the star read, “Most Corrupt Candidate ever.”
Most have seen the original and the edited version, where the star is replaced with a simple red circle, yet retaining the text. And why was it edited?
