Trump skips some usual lines of attack at rally

A package sent to Oscar-winning actor Robert de Niro was intercepted on Thursday after an employee of TriBeCa Productions, a television and film production company co-founded by the Hollywood megastar, alerted police.

According to CNN, law enforcement officials are treating the device, found in the building's mailroom, as an explosive.

A report in NBC News suggested that the devices included a parody of the Islamic State's black flag.

The FBI has said that at least five of the packages bore a return address for the Florida office of USA representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who formerly chaired the Democratic National Committee. No matter how much he denies responsibility, the rhetoric of President Trump and his supporters carries the blame for the coordinated mailing of pipe bombs to Democratic political officials and other public figures.

In the American police said that was sent to CNN, as well as the European Union and ex-US President Barack Obama improvised explosive devices were stuffed with white powder, reports the Chronicle.info with reference on the Facts. We declare here that the blame for these acts of terrorism and for the growing fear in the country rests with President Trump himself.

Trump claimed Wednesday at a rally in Wisconsin that Baldwin is a "radical, far left opponent" who "who wants a socialist takeover of health care".

The package bears similarities to the ones that have recently been sent to the homes of Bill and Hilary Clinton and billionaire businessman George Soros, as well as the office of Barack Obama.

"A very big part of the Anger we see today in our society is caused by the purposely false and inaccurate reporting of the Mainstream Media that I refer to as Fake News", Trump said on Twitter. Investigators in California scrutinized a package sent to Democratic Sen.

Earlier Friday the Federal Bureau of Investigation confirmed an 11th package, addressed to Democratic Sen.

Law enforcement officials say they're increasing security for people or organizations that might be targeted.

Authorities said neither Mr Obama nor Ms Clinton were at risk.

In addition, sources told CNN that a suspicious package intended for California Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters was intercepted at a congressional mail screening facility in Maryland; New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo received what he said was a device at his Manhattan office; and the San Diego Union-Tribune evacuated its building after "suspicious looking packages" were spotted outside. A police bomb squad removed still another from CNN's NY headquarters, which was evacuated. Debbie Wasserman Schultz. She is the former chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee who was accused by Clinton rivals of secretly helping the party's eventual presidential nominee.

A US official told The Associated Press that investigators believe the explosive that was discovered near the Clintons' home was linked to one found Monday at the Soros compound. Some media outlets reported that a similar device had been addressed to Trump at the White House, until the Secret Service debunked the account.

Another package was sent to Obama's Central Intelligence Agency director John Brennan, addressed care of Trump's nemesis news channel CNN, where Brennan is a frequent guest commentator. Trump has repeatedly criticized CNN as "fake news" and disparaged the mainstream news media as an "enemy of the people".

The White House condemned the attempted attacks, saying "terrorising acts are despicable, and anyone responsible will be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law".

Officials described the devices as PVC pipes stuffed with what appeared to be fireworks powder and glass. And the way to stop that is to turn back the other way, to bring down the temperature, to end any messages about the use of violence against people we disagree with.

The packages addressed to Biden were intercepted at DE mail facilities in New Castle and Wilmington, according to a law enforcement official who, like others, wasn't authorized to discuss the investigation and spoke on condition of anonymity.

CNN reports: "It was not immediately clear who the package was addressed to, but CNN evacuated its newsroom as a precaution".
