Republican candidate for President Donald Trump arrives in his plane to speak to supporters at a rally at Atlantic Aviation on June 11, 2016 in Moon Township, Pennsylvania.

Anti-Semitism among Donald Trump supporters has thrived on Twitter since the early days of his presidential campaign, and a vocal group of users are targeting journalists who have covered Trump and his family. Jonathan Weisman, Deputy Washington Editor for The New York Times and WNYC/NJPR reporter Matt Katz discuss the racial politics of the Trump campaign and the anti-Semitic abuse experienced by journalists. Weisman wrote about this for recent column in The New York Times, “The Nazi Tweets of ‘Trump God Emperor.” Katz is currently working on a piece about anti-Semitism among Trump supporters for WNYC.
