Throughout the three days of pipe bombs and suspicious white powder mailed to former presidents, Democratic lawmakers, the media, and vocally anti-Trump celebrities, the president continued to attack CNN. On Monday morning, he also attacked the media once again as well as Jewish businessman, Tom Steyer, following the pipe bomb Steyer received and the largest mass shooting of Jewish Americans in U.S. history.

Later on Monday, CNN received yet another suspicious package through the mail, this time at one of its buildings in Atlanta, Georgia.
CNN President WSB Radio reports that an investigation is underway.
‘The investigation comes just days after officials said a Florida man mailed explosive packages to current and former political figures around the country as well as the CNN building in New York. Over the past week, tensions were high as buildings around the country were put on lockdown and the packages were located.’

Trump and his supporters will continue to insist that blaming the president for stoking this hatred is foolish and inflammatory on the part of the left. They, however, are not the ones watching their elected leaders be threatened by domestic terrorism. Trump is doing everything he can to keep this division and fear going.
