President Trump complained Friday that “bomb stuff” is slowing momentum for Republicans in the midterms.
Republicans are doing so well in early voting, and at the polls, and now this “Bomb” stuff happens and the momentum greatly slows - news not talking politics. Very unfortunate, what is going on. Republicans, go out and vote!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 26, 2018
The president’s post comes as two more suspicious packages were found late Thursday night and early Friday morning.
The FBI confirmed that a package was found in Florida addressed to Sen. Cory Booker. In New York, NYPD found a package addressed to former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper at the CNN’s main offices.
The new additions reported Friday morning bring the total number of suspicious packages sent to prominent Democrats since Monday up to 12.
Mr. Trump condemned the threats earlier this week, but has not yet spoken about the latest developments.
He also blamed the media Thursday for being a “very large part” of the intense anger dividing the country.
Minority Leader Sen. Chuck Schumer, New York Democrat, slammed the president’s tweet, calling it “pathetic.”

When potential terrorism strikes, we should be pulling together, not playing politics. https://t.co/QhD7IaSTd9
