Donald Trump called for unity in response to news that a number of Democratic leaders, along with CNN, were sent “suspicious packages” that some media reports are describing as pipe bombs.

You can see Trump commenting on the incident in the clip below.

“A sprawling investigation unfolded Wednesday as authorities scrambled to respond to a series of suspicious packages,” CBS News reports. “The Secret Service intercepted two packages that were addressed to former President Obama’s home in Washington and Bill and Hillary Clinton’s residence in Westchester County, New York.

“Another package was addressed to former CIA Director John Brennan at the New York City offices of CNN, prompting CNN’s bureau and the Time Warner Center to evacuate.”

The report adds: “A package that was originally addressed to former Attorney General Eric Holder didn’t arrive at the address it was intended for and was rerouted to the return address on the label — the Florida office of former DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz.”

The report cites a law enforcement official telling CBS News senior investigative producer Pat Milton that crude but functional low-ordnance explosive devices found in at least two of the packages consisted of a pipe, wires and black powder.

Trump’s response, along with commentary by CNN, is part of the CNN clip below …
