  • President Donald Trump addressed a suspect being taken into
    custody in connection with mail bombs that have been sent to
    prominent officials and CNN.
  • “We must never allow political violence to take root in
    America. Cannot let it happen. I’m committed to doing
    everything in my power as President to stop it,” he
    said. 
  • Authorities arrested a suspect, Cesar Sayoc, in
    Plaintation, Florida, on Friday morning in connection with the
    bombs and plan to charge him.

President Donald Trump on Friday addressed a suspect being taken
into custody in connection with the sending of at least a dozen bombs to prominent
Democrats, former intelligence officials, and the news network
CNN.

“These terrorizing acts are despicable and have no place in
our country, Trump said in a speech at the Young Black Leadership
Summit.

“We must never allow political violence to take root in
America. Cannot let it happen. I’m committed to doing everything
in my power as President to stop it. To stop it now. Stop it
now,” he added.

Trump also congratulated law enforcement officials in the NYPD,
FBI, and US Postal Service for their efforts in quickly locating
and apprehending the suspect, reported to be 56 year old man
Cesar Sayoc. 

“The bottom line is that Americans must unify and we
must show the world that we are united together in peace, love,
and harmony as fellow American citizens,” Trump
said. 

The first person to be sent a package with an explosive device
attached was billionaire George Soros, who recieved one on
Wednesday morning.

The suspect, who has arrested in Florida Friday morning, is also
accused of sending similar devices to people critical of the
president, including the Bill and Hillary Clinton, the Obamas,
Joe Biden, actor Robert DeNiro, Sen. Cory Booker and Rep. Maxine
Waters.

The TimeWarner building in New York, home to cable news network
CNN, was evacuated on Wednesday after a similar package
containing an explosive device was sent to the network and
addressed to former CIA director John Brennan. 

An NYPD spokesperson confirmed in a Thursday press conference
that the device mailed to CNN had been sent to an FBI testing
facility for further analysis in Quantico, Virginia.
