Trump Speaks After Bomb Suspect Arrested: ‘We Must Never Allow Political Violence to Take Root in America’


President Donald Trump spoke at the Young Black Leadership Summit at the White House this afternoon and opened with comments about the arrest of the suspect in connection with the bomb scares this week.

The Justice Department is expected to speak this afternoon to provide more information on the suspect. The targets were high-profile Democrats and many reporters have noticed the many Trump stickers on the suspect’s van.

The President praised the great work of law enforcement, saying, these “terrorizing acts are despicable and have no place in our country.”

He added, “We must never allow political violence to take root in America. We cannot let it happen. We are committed to do everything to stop it. To stop it now.”
