Trump: ‘Unfortunate’ That ‘Bomb Stuff’ Slowing Republican Momentum Going Into Midterms
President Donald Trump on Friday complained about the pipe bombs being sent to prominent Democrats, lamenting that the scare has distracted from news about the midterms — and even slowed Republican momentum.
“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,” Trump tweeted. “Very unfortunate, what is going on. Republicans, go out and vote!”

Trump’s tweet, while somewhat nonsensical, suggests the president might be falling for the false flag theory — being pushed on Fox News this week — that the bombs are a Democratic operation to get out the vote for the midterms.
His tweet comes moments after police intercepted two more devices sent to Democratic Senator Cory Booker and Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper at CNN, where he now serves as a contributor.
