US President Donald Trump on Friday praised the "incredible job" of law enforcement after a suspect was detained in Florida in connection with 12 suspicious packages and pipe bombs sent to Democratic figures.

"These terrorizing acts are despicable and have no place in our country," Trump said from the White House. "I've instructed authorities to spare no resource or expense in finding those responsible and bringing them to swift and certain justice."

"We must never allow political violence to take root in America," Trump added. "We must show the world that we are united together in peace, love and harmony as fellow American citizens."
