Yesterday, a series of explosive devices and suspicious packages were discovered at homes of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, as well as the New York offices of CNN.
A similar device was also found at the home of billionaire philanthropist George Soros and other leading Democrats. The FBI is searching for suspects and have warned that other packages may still be undiscovered.
New York City mayor Bill de Blasio has labelled these attempts as "an act of terror" and, while it was fortunate that nobody was hurt, it does bring into further question the rhetoric that Donald Trump has promoted as president.
Democrats have asked Trump to restrict his language and condone any acts of violence, while Republican senator Jeff Flake said the POTUS needs to stop referring to the press as the "enemy of the people".
In a speech given after the discovery of the explosives, Trump said:
In these times, we have to unify, we have to come together, and send one very clear, strong, unmistakable message that acts or threats of political violence of any kind have no place in the United States of America.
We are extremely angry, upset, unhappy about what we witnessed this morning and we will get to the bottom of it.
