Lab technicians had linked DNA on two pipe bomb packages Sayoc is accused of sending to prominent Democrats to a sample previously collected by Florida state authorities.

Moore said that he might sit down with Sayoc one day to "break bread and ask him 'why me?'" "Because of this target he put on me, the police and security people were looking on Friday to see if a package had been sent to me and, if so, is it still somewhere in the postal delivery system", he shared.

A 14th package was found on Friday at a post office outside San Francisco addressed to another wealthy contributor to the Democratic Party and liberal causes, Tom Steyer.

Even before Sayoc was caught and charged, both newspapers insinuated that Trump was to blame.

The front page of the print edition of the Post on October 28 blamed Trump for both the synagogue shooting and the mail bombs, proclaiming, in a news headline, that "Trump, allies set the tone for the violence they denounce, critics say".

At a news conference in Washington, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that Sayoc had been charged with five federal crimes, including the interstate transportation of an explosive, the illegal mailing of explosives and making a threat against a former president and others.

Hours before his arrest, Sayoc was playing music sets at a strip club where he had worked for two months.

Speaking before his supporters at a North Carolina campaign rally later Friday, Trump called the attempted attacks "terrorist actions" that must be punished "to the fullest extent of the law".

The bombs seized Wednesday were about 6 inches (15 centimeters) long and packed with powder and broken glass, according to a law enforcement official who viewed X-ray images.

Early Friday, Trump appeared to downplay the mail bombs, saying on Twitter: "Republicans are doing so well in early voting, and at the polls, and now this "Bomb" stuff happens and the momentum greatly slows - news not talking politics".

Court records also show that Sayoc was convicted in the 1990s in Broward County, Fla. on grand theft and stolen property charges.

The suspect, Cesar Sayoc, was a fan of the president and allegedly mailed packages to prominent left-wing figures who have criticized the president.

Sayoc was sentenced to probation in August 2002 for threatening to throw a bomb during a conversation with a Florida utility representative, the AP reported. "We hope that he will be presented in court and brought to NY expeditiously so that the case can proceed", Baumgartel said.

FBI Director Christopher Wray said that the investigation is ongoing but that the explosives, which didn't detonate, aren't being treated as "hoax" devices.

Sayoc 56, of Aventura, Florida was arrested at an auto parts store in the nearby city of Plantation.
