Democrats Schumer, Pelosi Say Trump Has Condoned Violence
U.S. Democratic leaders in Congress said on Wednesday that President Donald Trump's call for unity after suspicious packages were sent to leading Democratic figures "ring hollow" because of his past statements that condone acts of violence.
"Time and time again, the president has condoned physical violence and divided Americans with his words and his actions," Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer and House of Representatives top Democrat Nancy Pelosi said in a statement.
They cited the Republican president's "support for the congressman who body-slammed a reporter, the neo-Nazis who killed a young woman in Charlottesville, his supporters at rallies who get violent with protesters, dictators around the world who murder their own citizens, and referring to the free press as the enemy of the people."
President Donald Trump condemned the series of attempted attacks on high-profile Democrats and others, declaring Wednesday that "acts or threats of political violence have no place in the United States."

I USED To Condone these Sorry Excuses for Human Beings on the Left , but Now I Wish they All Just Drop Dead Soon and do US All a Favor . Imagine a Country WITHOUT these Dregs of the Politic..............
The safety of the American people is my highest and absolute priority. I have just concluded a briefing with the FBI, the Department of Justice, Department of Homeland Security, and the US Secret Service. As we speak the packages are being inspected by top explosive experts and a major federal investigation is now underway. The full weight of our government is being deployed to conduct this investigation and bring those responsible for these despicable acts to justice. We will spare no resources or expense in this effort and I just want to tell you that in these times we have to unify. We have to come together and send one very clear strong unmistakable message that acts or threats of political violence of any kind have no place in the United States of America. I'd say very bipartisan statement, I can tell you from both sides. We both agree on that. This egregious conduct is abhorrent to everything we hold dear and sacred as Americans. My administration will provide additional updates as they become available and I just want to thank everybody for their understanding. We're extremely angry, upset, unhappy about what we witnessed this morning and we will get to the bottom of it.
