Earlier Wednesday morning, the United States Secret Service said it had intercepted two "suspicious packages" addressed to Obama and Clinton, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee, earlier this week.
On Packages Sent to Clinton and ObamaAccording to the Secret Service, both packages were identified during routine mail screening procedures.
A police bomb squad removed still another from CNN's NY office, which was evacuated.
The New Castle Police Department, which covers the area around the Clinton home, issued a statement: "This morning, the New Castle Police Department assisted to FBI, Secret Service, and the Westchester County Police with the investigation of a suspicious package".
CNN, labeled the "mainstream liberal media" by proponents of the political right in the U.S., announced on its screens on Wednesday that it had evacuated its NY building over a suspicious package similar to those addressed to the two former high-ranking Democrats and their donor.
Asserting that the safety of US citizens is his "highest and absolute priority", the US President added that "the full weight of our government" is looking into the matter and will "bring those responsible for these despicable acts to justice".
"The US Secret Service and other law enforcement agencies are investigating and will take all appropriate actions to protect anyone threatened by these cowards", she said. Trump's comments at a White House event on opioid addiction was his first substantive reaction to the rash of bomb alerts, which also targeted his former Democratic rival for the presidency, Hillary Clinton.More news: Horner: Verstappen ‘rode the storm’ during tough start to the year

Besides, the office of Cable News Network (CNN) in Time Warner Center building in NY was evacuated after a suspicious package was found.
A suspicious device was found Monday at the NY compound of billionaire George Soros, a major contributor to Democratic causes. Law enforcement evacuated the building.
Over the past two days, Trump has been briefed multiple times on the investigation relating to the spate of bombs.
A package addressed to Obama was intercepted in Washington, D.C., where the former president lives.
Trump regularly attacks Obama and Clinton and frequently characterizes CNN as "fake news".
"There is a total and complete lack of understanding at the White House about the seriousness of their continued attacks on the media", Zucker said.
"We have seen an effort by the media in recent hours to use the sinister acts of one individual to score political points against me and the Republican party", he said.
But Democratic Senate and House leaders Chuck Schumer of NY and Nancy Pelosi of California said such words "ring hollow" when coming from Trump.
