Speaking at an event to discuss the opioid epidemic, the President responded to news that the secret service had intercepted suspicious packages sent to prominent Democrats, saying, “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 violence of any kind have no place in the United States of America.”
“The full weight of our government is being deployed to conduct this investigation and bring those responsible for these despicable acts to justice. We will spare no resources or expense in this effort,” Trump promised.
A similar package was also sent to CNN, sparking a massive evacuation of the Time Warner Center in Manhattan, where CNN is located.
