President Trump is expected to address the investigation into the suspicious packages and explosive devices any minute now.
He’s will issue another call for unity and will mention the arrest but give no specifics of who was arrested or any other details, an official said.
The President will describe the suspicious packages as “terrorizing acts,” an official said.
He recently went back to the Oval Office — which explains his delay (he was expected to begin speaking around noon ET).
His speech is being updated as we speak.
Florida governor: “ANY attempt to harm others is disgusting”
Florida Gov. Rick Scott took to Twitter to condemn the series of explosive devices and suspicious packages sent to prominent Democrats, Trump critics and others.
Authorities arrested a man in connection to the suspicious packages in Plantation, Florida, according to multiple law enforcement sources.
I have been briefed by FDLE on developments regarding the attempted bombings. ANY attempt to harm others is disgusting & has no place in Florida or our country. I appreciate the hard work of law enforcement to bring swift justice to whoever is responsible for these cowardly acts.
