Because everything Trump does comes garnished with a grotesque twist of irony, the president is pushing all of this out at precisely the moment his own administration is undercutting the pre-existing conditions protections that already exist, and that he previously tried to dismantle through his failed Obamacare repeal efforts.

Reports say that the man, who is reportedly being identified as Cesar Sayoc, a 56-year-old Trump supporter who has a criminal background and ties to NY. He said there was no imminent danger to the Time Warner Center, where CNN's NY office is located.

Hours after a federal law enforcement official said the investigation's focus on Florida had intensified, police closed roads around the parking lot of an AutoZone store in Plantation where Sayoc was arrested, and helicopters flew overhead.

New York City Police Commissioner James O'Neill says investigators are reviewing security video to see if they can identify a courier believed to have delivered the pipe bomb package to CNN's office.

"I am pleased to inform you that law enforcement has apprehended the suspect and taken him into custody", he said to applause from the crowd at a young black American summit at the White House on October 26, shortly after Cesar Sayoc, 56, was apprehended in Florida. The CNN package was addressed to former CIA Director John Brennan, who has publicly clashed with Mr Trump and is a regular television contributor. "Mainstream Media must clean up its act, FAST!"

The first such package was discovered Monday at the NY home of George Soros, a billionaire activist known to fund pro-democracy and liberal political groups. "The United States Secret Service and other law enforcement agencies are investigating and will take all appropriate actions to protect anyone threatened by these cowards", Sanders said.

The president has described the Democratic Party as the party of crime and harshly assaulted its candidates. Each bore a computer-printed address label and six "Forever" postage stamps.

The white powder included in the suspicious packages sent to a number of Democratic leaders over the past few days in a number of locations - and intercepted by authorities before any harm could be done - is said not to present any "biological" threat.

The FBI said late on Wednesday it had confirmed that two additional packages, similar in appearance to the others, were addressed to Waters.

Since coming to office, Trump has been widely criticised by rights groups and press freedom organisations for his frequent criticism of the media. He has called her "an extremely low-IQ person" and has pegged her level of intellect as "somewhere in the mid-60s", which is considered the range for a mental disability.

The White House's political arm, the Republican National Committee, released a video less than two weeks ago entitled, "The Left: An Unhinged Mob" that featured liberal protesters banging on doors backed by aggressive rhetoric from several prominent Democrats, including Rep. Maxine Waters of California and Hilary Clinton.

How unsafe the devices were.

The head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation says the suspect arrested in the mail bombs sent to prominent Democrats was found in part using fingerprint evidence and possible DNA. The devices, each with a small battery, were made from PVC pipe about 6in long and covered with black tape, said a law enforcement source who viewed X-ray images. "The question is where do other Republicans go, where do independent voters go, where do center-right Democrats go?" Last weekend, he said at a rally in Montana that a congressman who body-slammed a Guardian reporter was "my kind of guy".

"Any acts or threats of political violence are an attack on our democracy itself", Trump said.

"The new guidance we are issuing today builds on the new flexibility we've already given states through our rule making to lower premiums and increase choices for Americans", CMS Administrator Seema Verma said on a call with reporters.
