Trump aide condemns anti-Semitic heckler

Donald Trump's campaign manager condemned a supporter who yelled anti-Semitic taunts.

"That man's conduct was deplorable," Kellyanne Conway told CNN's State of the Union, using a term Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton once used to describe some of Trump's supporters. "And had I been there, I would have asked security to remove him immediately.

"Clearly, he doesn't speak for the campaign or the candidate, and what he had to say was disgusting."

During a rally a Saturday night rally in Phoenix, as the crowd chanted "U-S-A! U-S-A!," a man shouted at the press pen: "Jew-S-A! Jew-S-A!"

It's only the latest time that reporters at Trump events have been subjected to verbal abuse.

While human rights groups have frequently noted the number of racists and white supremacists who have aligned themselves with Trump, Conway said the campaign does not welcome them.

"Don't besmirch the good name of the tens of thousands, the millions of Trump supporters," Conway told CNN.
