  • US President Donald Trump sometimes invokes images of violence in remarks to his supporters

So far, no one has been hurt.

Yet another device was also reported to have been found in Tribeca, New York at a property that belongs to actor Robert De Niro.

The FBI have confirmed the identity of the recipients on their official Twitter account.

The NYPD bomb squad X-rayed the parcel and made a decision to remove it for investigation. The News Journal said that the Wilmington post office remained open Thursday. It says federal agents and New Castle County Police are responding to the facility.

President Donald Trump has claimed much of the "Anger" in society is "caused by the purposely false and inaccurate reporting of the Mainstream Media".

President Donald Trump said that these threats "have no place in America".

"The president says what he calls "fake news" has gotten bad and the mainstream media must "clean up its act, FAST".

The package was addressed to the Hollywood actor and was similar to the one sent to CNN and others on Wednesday, sources told Fox 5 News in New York City.

It contained an envelope of white powder that experts were analysing, Police Commissioner James O'Neill said.

In June, 75-year-old De Niro received a standing ovation at the Tony Awards in NY for using an expletive to condemn Mr Trump.

This report comes the day after a flurry of reports as officials discovered suspicious packages containing pipe bombs sent to Democratic leaders. The package was misaddressed and returned to sender, two law enforcement sources previously told CNN.

According to the New York City Police Department, the package was found near Greenwich and Franklin streets. "We have committed the full strength of the FBI's resources and, together with our partners on our Joint Terrorism Task Forces, we will continue to work to identify and arrest whoever is responsible for sending these packages".

"The protectees did not receive the packages nor were they at risk of receiving them", it said.

NBC's NY affiliate reported that the package was similar to ones sent to prominent Democrats earlier this week and was sent to a restaurant owned by actor Robert De Niro. The mail facility was evacuated and a bomb squad called on to the scene, according to KABC. A conservative talk show hosts even questioned whether someone who opposed Trump sent the bombs.

The bombs found this week were intended for at least seven officials, including Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters.

During a discussion about the attempted bombings of Trump critics, CNN's Shimon Prokupecz said that the Federal Bureau of Investigation still has no idea who is sending these explosive devices and said they expect the bomber to keep sending packages until they are caught.

CNN has been a repeated target of Trump's attack, with the USA president often labelling the network as "fake news".

Trump tried to strike a bipartisan tone about the attempted attacks on Wednesday.
