The package was addressed to actor Robert De Niro, a vocal critic of Trump, and has markings similar to the other pipe bomb packages recently mailed nationwide, two law enforcement sources told CNN.

Authorities have located a suspicious package addressed to former Vice President Joe Biden in DE, multiple law enforcement officials told CNN Thursday. "Fear is the intent and we are trying to counter fear, so we've deployed National Guard, we doubled the state police, you'll see more of a police presence in NY".

Former Vice President Joe Biden and Oscar-winning actor Robert De Niro were the latest to apparently be targeted with suspicious packages sent in the mail, it was announced Thursday.

It's the latest bomb scare to rock the U.S. following packages sent to Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden and the CNN studios.

Former CIA Director John Brennan, prominent Democratic Party donor George Soros and California Congresswoman Maxine Waters, an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump, were also targets of packages.

All the people who have been targeted by the serial bomber are frequently maligned by right-wing critics, including former President Barack Obama, former Secretary of State and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and Obama's Attorney General Eric Holder.

Very early Thursday morning, President Trump appeared to indirectly address speculation that his own incendiary rhetoric against the media may have inspired said perpetrator. The bombs were unstable and could have been set off just by handling, sources said.

Yet another device was also reported to have been found in Tribeca, New York at a property that belongs to actor Robert De Niro.

The New York Police Department says the package was reported around 4 a.m. ET, in the area of Greenwich and Franklin streets in Tribeca.

On Wednesday night, President Donald Trump condemned the apparent act of terror.

Retired FBI explosives expert Tom Thurman says investigators will now scour the bombs for clues.

Coupled with Halloween's $14.3 million global opening gross , the slasher movie made a total $91.8 million worldwide. Damien Chazelle's space epic, which holds a $60 million price tag, dropped roughly 46 percent in its second frame.

The package in Tribeca is similar to those that contained pipe bombs, NBC News reports.

Investigators are now working in NY and other cities, in the postal system, and at the federal level, to determine who sent the packages - and why.

The president tweeted that mainstream media must "clean up its act". Security at De Niro's NY movie production company found the package addressed to him around 5 a.m.

The FBI said the packages consisted of a manila envelope with a bubble-wrap interior containing "potentially destructive devices". The package looked similar to the others and had a similar device inside, the source said. But Democratic Senate and House leaders Chuck Schumer of NY and Nancy Pelosi of California said such words "ring hollow" when coming from Trump.

Some of his supporters have said they believe the packages are part of a Democratic plot to win votes in the mid-terms, but there is no evidence for this.

Trump said that in his view, the media held some responsibility for the current political climate of division and distrust between Americans.
