After suspected mail bombs were addressed to prominent Democrats and CNN, President Donald Trump blamed the "Fake News" media on Thursday for causing "a very big part of the anger we see in our society."
"It has gotten so bad and hateful that it is beyond description," Trump said in a morning tweet. "Mainstream Media must clean up its act, FAST!"
The president's accusation came less than a day after law enforcement intercepted a series of suspicious packages, some containing explosive devices.
Manila envelopes were addressed to former President Barack Obama, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the Time Warner Center in Manhattan, which houses CNN, and Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters. Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, former chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, also received a package reportedly intended for ex-Attorney General Eric Holder, with her return address.
