The US are investigating ‘terror’ attack on leading Democrats

Rated 5/5 (1 person). Log in to rate.

On Tuesday Barrack Obama, Hilary Clinton and the CNN headquarters in New York were all targets of an ‘act of terrorism’ - they were sent packages containing pipe-bombs. 

On Wednesday night more suspicious packages were being investigated near offices of Democratic politicians. Two packages were also sent to California Congresswoman Maxine Waters, the FBI said. 

Donald Trump made a statement on the matter, saying that his party were “extremely angry, upset, unhappy” about the situation and called for unity to stop terrorism.  

Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, the two most senior Democrats in the US Congress, later criticised this statement, suggesting that Trump was simply adjusting his tone for the situation, before returning to his aggressive rhetoric.  

The US President also added, “as part of a larger national effort to bridge divides, that the media was partly to blame for splitting the nation and allowing such ‘acts’ to occur.
