Stickers on the van indicated support for Trump alongside images of prominent Democrats with gun sight targets on their faces and phrases like “CNN SUCKS” and “dishonest media.”

“The pipe bomber suspect's van is emblazoned with sinister targets over Trump opponents - some of whom received the bombs,” Morgan tweeted shortly after the suspect’s arrest. “He's obviously a lunatic, but lunatics get triggered.”

“The President can't ignore this, he MUST cool down his often violently aggressive rhetoric,” Morgan added.

Trump on Friday pledged to bring those responsible to “swift and certain justice.”

"We must never allow political violence to take root in America and I am committed to doing everything in my power to stop it and to stop it now," he said.

The president's comments follow his earlier remark that the bomb scare will halt Republican “momentum” going into the Nov. 6 midterm elections.

Trump also accused the media of “blaming” him for the explosive packages.

Cesar Sayoc Jr. was identified by several media outlets, citing law enforcement officials, as the suspect taken into custody. Sayoc is a registered Republican with a criminal record that includes felony theft, drug and fraud charges dating back to 1991.

Public records show he was once arrested and accused of threatening to use a bomb.
