Melania Trump denounces ‘cowardly attacks’ after bomb alerts

WASHINGTON, United States (AFP) — Melania Trump on Wednesday denounced as “cowardly attacks” a series of pipe bombs sent to Barack Obama, other top Democrats and CNN — all hate figures for backers of US President Donald Trump.

“We cannot tolerate those cowardly attacks and I strongly condemn all who choose violence,” the first lady said as she opened a meeting at the White House dedicated to the opioid crisis.
