A close ally of President Donald Trump is under fire for a tweet about the recent rash of bomb threats at Jewish Community Centers that Democrats charged pointed to them as the culprits, NBC News reported.
Anthony Scaramucci tweeted that "it's not yet clear who the #JCC offenders are" but he noted the "Democrats effort to incite violence at Trump rallies." The tweet included a Breitbart article, which in turn embedded a video where conservative activist James O'Keefe insisted that Democrats had hired “trained provocateurs” to encourage destructive acts at Trump rallies during the 2016 election. NBC News has not confirmed the allegations.
“Don't forget @TheDemocrats effort to incite violence at Trump rallies,” Scaramucci wrote.
The Trump ally faced criticism for his accusations, including a message from Sen. Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii), who tweeted that Scaramucci’s words were “vile” and he should resign from his role at the White House.
