I'd like to begin today's remarks by providing an update on the suspicious packages and devices mailed to current and former high-ranking government officials. The safety of the American people is my highest and absolute priority.
I have just concluded a briefing with the FBI, Department of Justice, Department of Homeland Security, and the US Secret Service. As we speak, the packages are being inspected by top explosives experts, and a major federal investigation is now underway. The full weight of our government is being deployed to conduct this investigation and bring those responsible for these despicable acts to justice. We will spare no resources or expense in this effort.
And I just want to tell you that in these times, we have to unify. We have to come together and send one very clear, strong, unmistakable message that acts or threats of political violence of any kind have no place in the United States of America. That's a very bipartisan statement. I can tell you from both sides, we both agree on that.
This egregious conduct is abhorrent to everything we hold dear and sacred as Americans. My administration will provide additional updates as they become available, and I just want to thank everybody for their understanding. We are extremely angry, upset, unhappy about what we witnessed this morning, and we will get to the bottom of it.
