An avid weightlifter, some of Sayoc's legal troubles were related to steroids, Myre reports.
Trump's comments came hours after Cesar Sayoc, a Florida resident and apparent Trump supporter, was arrested and charged with sending 13 explosive devices to prominent Trump critics, many of whom have been frequent targets of the President's rhetoric.
Law enforcement officials told The Associated Press that the devices, containing timers and batteries, were not rigged like booby-trapped package bombs that would explode upon opening. His fingerprint was found on one of the envelopes and possible DNA matches were made to material found on two of the explosive devices, investigators said.
Thomas Fiori, a former federal law enforcement officer, said he saw an undercover police officer in a nearby SUV looking at the AutoZone store with binoculars Friday. His first arrest in the state was at age 29 for larceny.
Son of murdered journalist Khashoggi leaves Saudi Arabia for US
Trump has also blamed the Saudi de facto leader, who is known in media as "MBS", for the killing of Khashoggi. He was there to pick up marriage papers, with his fiancée waiting outside in their vehicle .
A pipe bomb addressed to Soros had already been intercepted, and by Wednesday, after similar bombs addressed to other senior Democratic officials and CNN were also intercepted, McCarthy pulled down the video.
Sayoc also appears to identify himself as a member of the Seminole tribe, the New York Daily News reported.
Two weeks ago, Sayoc threatened a former Democratic congressional spokeswoman on Twitter after her appearance on Fox News. On Friday, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said they had him in custody.
Besides that, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said, his social media posts that traffic in online conspiracy theories, parody accounts and name-calling include some of the same misspellings as were noticed on the 13 packages he was charged with sending.
Trump vowed that anyone responsible for mailing the suspicious packages will be prosecuted to the "fullest extent of the law".
Steyer said that while Democrats have not behaved perfectly in recent months, Trump has gone far beyond acceptable standards at his rallies. "But it was just his political views that scared me". "The media's constant unfair coverage, deep hostility and negative attacks only serve to drive people apart and undermine healthy debate".
But in a morning Twitter post before the arrest was announced, the president characterized the attempted bombings as an obstacle blocking Republican voters ahead of the midterms.
