An artist who drew a cartoon that showed U.S. government officials as puppets of George Soros and the Rothschilds says he has been invited to the White House by President Donald Trump.

The Anti-Defamation League called Ben Garrison’s 2017 cartoon “blatantly anti-Semitic” and said that “the thrust of the cartoon is clear: (then-National Security Advisor H.R.) McMaster is merely a puppet of a Jewish conspiracy.”



The cartoon, which the ADL said was commissioned by right-wing radio host Mike Cernovich, shows liberal Jewish philanthropist George Soros pulling the strings of McMaster and former CIA director Gen. David Petraeus. Above Soros, a green hand labeled “Rothschilds,” the well-known Jewish banking family, manipulates him.



Cernovich is known for starting the “Pizzagate” conspiracy theory, which claimed that the Clintons were running a pedophile ring in the basement of a Washington, D.C., pizza restaurant.



The Rothschilds often appear in anti-Semitic conspiracy theories, which have them running a secretive international Jewish cabal that controls the world.



Garrison tweeted an image of his invitation to the White House for a social media summit, saying he was “honored.”



CNN’s Jake Tapper tweeted about the invite.
