Donald Trump on Friday called the attempted US mail bombing spree "terrorist actions" that must be punished "to the fullest extent of the law," while speaking at a rally of his supporters.
"As you know the suspect has been captured and is in federal custody," the US president said, after a man was arrested for allegedly mailing at least 13 explosive devices to people including leading Democratic figures and former high-ranking officials.
"Political violence must never ever be allowed in America and I will do everything in my power to stop it."
