After President Donald Trump got a standing ovation from an invited crowd at the White House for saying acts or threats of political violence have no place in the United States, CNN chief Jeff Zucker issued a statement about the suspected bomb sent to his news network's NY offices, and to various Democrats Trump loves to target, who also were sent suspected bombs. "Thus far, they have shown no comprehension of that", Zucker said as the network's NY bureau was evacuated for five hours on Wednesday following the discovery of an explosive device sent there.

The package addressed to the former Central Intelligence Agency chief was sent to the Time Warner Center in Manhattan, which prompted CNN's NY bureau, housed within the building, to be evacuated.

Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci is promoting a book and said the president needs a chief of staff who "really likes him".
