Despite a week of domestic terrorism, attempted political assassinations and attempted mass murders, Trump is furious the press is covering it instead of taking about the midterms and early voting – which he says has slowed momentum.
"Republicans are doing so well in early voting, and at the polls, and now this 'Bomb' stuff happens and the momentum greatly slows - news not talking politics," Trump tweeted late Friday morning. "Very unfortunate, what is going on. Republicans, go out and vote!"
The President falsely suggests the 12 pipe bombs are not bombs. While they have reportedly been described as crudely made and some were not capable of working, all that have been examined by law enforcement authorities reportedly were live and packed with explosive materials and shards of glass – designed to effect maximum bodily harm and death.
Trump has massively politicized every aspect and every branch of the federal government. Most recently he sent Homeland Security head Kirstjen Nielsen to the Southern border to politicize the "caravan" of migrants traveling from Honduras – who are 1000 miles and days if not weeks away from approaching the U.S.
The President also said he will send 800 troops to the border and is considering shutting it down to all migrants – including those who are seeking asylum. Doing so could be illegal.
