Donald Trump ignored even his own calls for civility and unity in politics in the wake of the pipe-bomb campaign, unleashing on Friday night a defiant attack on the media and "radical socialist" Democrats at his latest rally in North Carolina. "Day in, day out, there is a negative tone", Sanders told press outside the White House. The packages were respectively addressed to the residences of Mr Obama in Washington and Mrs Clinton in Chappaqua.
Later in the morning at a Florida fundraiser, Hillary Clinton said that "we are fine" and thanked the Secret Service for intercepting the package "long before it made its way to our home". The official didn't say whether the powder was explosive.
At an event in Texas on Wednesday, Brennan faulted Trump for frequent inflammatory rhetoric.
The package was received within the past few days, said police. Apparently, an employee actually opened the package sent to Soros then, after growing suspicious, ditched it in a wooded area.
The FBI is doing a nationwide manhunt for whoever is sending the pipe bomb packages.
Two packages were sent to California Congresswoman Maxine Waters, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said. It's unclear if the package resembles the packages found elsewhere. The CNN offices do not appear to have been affected.
Trump said Republicans did not try to seek political gain over the Democrats when a supporter of democratic socialist Bernie Sanders opened fire on congressional Republicans at a baseball field a year ago and severely wounded Representative Steve Scalise. The president is said to be closely monitoring the situation.
The NYPD said the entire building is not being evacuated. Eric Trump also spoke out, echoing Evanka's statement that "America is better than this". They noted the president's recent praise of a GOP congressman who body-slammed a reporter, among other Trump statements.
Vice president Mike Pence tweeted: "These cowardly actions are despicable & have no place in this Country".
Several politicians, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, described it as an act of terrorism.
