As America reeled amid reports of multiple bomb scares, two of President Donald Trumps children — Ivanka and Donald Trump Jr. — took to Twitter to send a message to anyone who would resort to such action.
Trump Jr., whose family was the target of a mail-related scare months ago, tweeted his condemnation, saying that party or ideology didnt matter.
“This crap has to stop, and I hope they end up in jail for a long time,” he added.
As someone whose family has directly been the victim of these mail threats I condemn whoever did this regardless of party or ideology. This crap has to stop and I hope they end up in jail for a long time. https://t.co/pajRgM4hYm

Ivanka tweeted her thanks to the U.S. Secret Service and law enforcement for protecting the nation and took aim at the perpetrator(s), saying, “There is no excuse — America is better than this.”
I strongly condemn the attempted acts of violence against President Obama, the Clinton family, @CNN & others. There is no excuse—America is better than this.
Gratitude to the @SecretService and law enforcement for all they do to keep this nation safe.
