Donald Trump has released what seems like the closing-argument ad of his campaign, and several people are pointing out that the whole thing has rather troubling anti-Semitic overtones by at the very least implying that it's prominent Jews who control the "levers of power."The two-minute–long ad uses audio from a speech Trump gave last month in West Palm Beach that was harshly criticized by the Anti-Defamation League for "rhetoric and tropes that historically have been used against Jews and still spur antisemitism." The speech is interspersed with photos of powerful people. Besides Hillary and Bill Clinton and President Obama, the other three readily identifiable people in the video are all Jews: financier George Soros, Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen, and Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein.
"The establishment has trillions of dollars at stake in this election," the GOP presidential nominee warns in the two-minute video. "For those who control the levers of power in Washington and for the global special interests, they partner with these people that don't have your good in mind."As Trump says "levers of power in Washington," we see footage of George Soros, a billionaire investor and philanthropist. And when Trump says, "global special interests," Federal Reserve chairwoman Janet Yellen appears on screen.Both Soros and Yellen are Jewish.
