The New York Police Department investigated several suspicious bags left outside the Trump Tower yesterday afternoon. Citing police sources, the New York Post reported:

“Four bags containing cell phones and an unknown device were found lying by flowerpots near a Starbucks on the second floor of the atrium in the midtown Manhattan building at around 4:30 p.m.”

It has further been reported that a custodian first spotted two suspicious bags and flagged the bags to law enforcement. The authorities found another two bags when they arrived at the scene.

More recently, just this week, Democratic Senator Cory Booker lambasted supporters of Trump’s Supreme Court nominee by calling them “complicit in evil,” before encouraging activists to “get up in the faces” of some Congress members, days later.Follow us on Social Media
