Obama slams Trump in election rally

Obama slams Trump in election rally

With health care a major issue in the race for governor and U.S. Senate in Wisconsin, former President Barack Obama highlighted party differences on the issue in Milwaukee Friday.

Federal Bureau of Investigation chief Christopher Wray confirmed the suspect is 56-year-old Florida resident Cesar Sayoc.

Authorities also seized a white van that Sayoc appeared to have used as his dwelling, its windows plastered with pro-Trump stickers, the slogan "CNN SUCKS" and images of Democratic leaders with red cross-hairs over their faces.

Three new suspected bombs were detected Friday morning in Florida, New York and California as agents in South Florida were preparing to apprehend Sayoc at the parking lot. "There may be more packages in transit now".

Trump focused his remarks on Friday on praising law enforcement for "having done an incredible job" in arresting a suspect.

He said the "character of our country is on the ballot' in the first midterm election since Trump took the oath of the office" and that "Congress isn't even in session before the election!"

They had very few three-pointers to speak of; in other words, they were the opposite of what the NBA is supposed to be today. In fact, not only do they have deficiencies, but they do not even have the tools or resources to resolve those deficiencies.

A suspect has been charged with five federal crimes in connection with more than a dozen suspicious packages sent in a United States mail bombing spree, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Friday.

"These are not hoax devices", FBI Director Christopher Wray said at a news conference Friday. None of the intercepted bombs exploded and no one was hurt. While Trump was frequently the target of his criticism, he did not spare Republicans generally and said they are lying when they say they want to protect people with pre-existing conditions while trying to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

All the individuals targeted by the packages Sayoc is accused of sending have been outspoken critics of Trump and his administration, foils for the president and his right-wing supporters or both. The complaint also cited a "possible DNA" link between samples taken from two of the bombs and a sample previously collected from Sayoc.

If convicted, Sayoc could be sentenced up to 48 years in prison, officials said.

Announcing the arrest to a cheering audience at the White House, Trump said, "We must never allow political violence to take root in America - can not let it happen", Trump said.
