"I think that everybody on the Democratic side would look at that shooter of Congressman Scalise and absolutely condemn his action, him and anyone associated with him", Steyer said, referring to the shooting of House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., during a congressional baseball practice previous year.

The man suspected of sending explosive devices to Democratic figures across the country will make his first court appearance Monday.

The 56-year-old is due to go before a federal judge in Miami, Florida, not far from where federal agents arrested him on Friday near the van where authorities say Sayoc was living.

President Donald Trump said Friday he has no plans to call former President Barack Obama or other individuals who were the intended targets of pipe bombs mailed this week.

In 2002, he was arrested after Miami police said he threatened to bomb a power company, saying "it would be worse than September 11th".

One law enforcement official said the fingerprint discovery was a major breakthrough.

The FBI's Atlanta bomb squad and other law enforcement personnel responded after being notified by the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, Kevin Rowson, an FBI spokesman, said in a statement.

Debra Gureghian, the general manager of New River Pizza and Fresh Kitchen restaurant in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, where mail bomb suspect Cesar Sayoc worked as a delivery driver until January, told CNN that Sayoc was anti-black, anti-gay and anti-Jewish.

USA justice department officials said the bombs were "not hoax devices" and warned there could be more still undiscovered.

Two more suspicious packages surfaced Friday morning, one in Florida addressed to Sen. Cory Booker, former National Intelligence Director James Clapper, and billionaire Democrat Tom Steyer were discovered at various locations.

Sayoc was aggressive on Twitter, often threatening Democrats like former Vice President Joe Biden, in vitriolic, typo riddled tweets.

Officials said they expect Sayoc will be moved to New York City swiftly where he will face indictment on multiple criminal charges. The president said the "terrorist actions" should be punished "to the fullest extent of the law", and added that "political violence must never, ever be allowed in America".

An analysis of news coverage shows that the two newspapers emphasized the facts that fit their narrative and insinuated that Trump was to blame. "But it was just his political views that scared me".

Earlier in the day the United States president complained on Twitter that this "bomb stuff" had slowed momentum for the Republicans ahead of the U.S. mid-term elections.
