THE BASICS: Jared Kushner, writes in his paper, the New York Observer that his father-in-law, Donald Trump is a Rorschach test, what people see is a reflection of their own projections. Kushner, who is Jewish, goes on to say that Trump has always been very accepting of him and that the Star of David meme was the product of an innocent error during a fast-paced campaign. Meanwhile, CNN's Ruth Ben-Ghiat, a professor of history at NYU, argues that the tweet in question is part of the consistent racism central to Trump's social media presence. She contends the candidate is purposefully signaling allegiance to white-supremists and has been doing so consistently throughout his campaign.
