Ambiguous Dog Whistle?

A friend pointed out that in two tweets, Trump managed to get a Jewish politician’s name or twitter handle into parentheses.  Only one set of parentheses, not three, as is the style of white supremacists, but that would be too obvious.  I am genuinely on the fence as to whether this one is a clumsy use of punctuation or a dog whistle.  Obviously, Trump says a lot of things that more obviously sit somewhere on the spectrum from “dog whistle” to “shrieking noise the pod people make in the remake of Invasion of the Body Snatchers to identify remaining humans,” so Trump’s status as a white supremacist doesn’t exactly hang on this verdict.  I’m just curious what commenters here think.  He later called Debbie Wasserman-Schultz “highly neurotic.”
