"He's winking and fueling the fire of hateful individuals," Dana Schwartz, a reporter for the New York Observer, told Inside Edition. The paper's publisher is Jared Kushner, Trump's son-in-law.

Asked if she thinks Trump is an anti-Semite, she said, "As an individual, no. But his supporters, many of them, absolutely are.  And his willingness to continue to wink at them and acknowledge them is horrifying."

Schwartz is a 23-year-old entertainment reporter who's been working at the Observer for just two months.

She is outraged at the tweet sent out by Trump's campaign, showing what looks like a Star of David surrounded by $100 bills. Trump's camp later replaced the star with a circle.

"The symbolism hit you on the head with a hammer. It was raining money.  A Star of David, to me, it was undeniably anti-Semitic. There was anti-Semitic subtext to it," she said.

Kushner is married to Ivanka Trump, and he's become a familiar face on the campaign trail, often standing right by his father-in-law's side.  

Schwartz was so offended by the Trump tweet that she wrote an open letter to  Kushner: "When you stand silent and smiling in the background, his Jewish son-in-law, you're giving his most hateful supporters tacit approval," she wrote.

In a written statement, Kushner responded to Schwartz's letter: "My father-in-law is an incredibly loving and tolerant person who has embraced my family and our Judaism since I began dating my wife. I know that Donald does not at all subscribe to any racist or anti-Semitic thinking."  

Asked if she fears she may lose your job, she told IE, "If I lost my job, it will be for standing up for something that no one should be silent for."
