No nation can succeed that tolerates violence or the threat of violence as a method of political intimidation, coercion or control,” Trump said at a rally in Mosinee, Wisconsin, on Wednesday night. “Such conduct must be fiercely opposed and firmly prosecuted.”
“We want all sides to come together in peace and harmony,” he added. “We can do it, we can do it, we can do it. It’ll happen.”
Trump then partially blamed the media for the politically charged bomb scare and the country’s divide.
