Palmieri: It’s Pretty Clear This Suspect Was Motivated by Trump’s Rantings

"This suspect was motivated by political rantings from this president, as is pretty clear as you saw on that van."

Hillary Clinton’s former communication director from her 2016 presidential election, Jennifer Palmieri, said Friday “it’s pretty clear” that Cesar Sayoc, Jr. was motivated by President Trump’s “rantings” on MSNBC.

Sayoc, Jr. was arrested by the FBI on Friday in connection with the mail-bomb scare that targeted top officials in the Democratic Party, as well as CNN and actor Robert De Niro.

Palmieri blasted Trump for not calling either Clinton or former President Barack Obama, who were both targeted by Sayoc, Jr., to express concern for their safety.

“It had been clear that this suspect was motivated by political rantings from this president, as is pretty clear as you saw on that van. You saw ‘CNN sucks,’ you saw a lot of right-wing propaganda on the suspect’s van,” Palmieri said. “It would be incumbent on this president to say something unifying.”

“There’s never any acknowledgment of ownership on his part that he’s fueling these flames. He said he wants a message of unity, yet he leads rallies where his supporters still chant ‘Lock her up,’ and he calls the press the ‘enemy of the people.’ Of course this was going to happen,” Palmieri said.
