WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump said on Friday he had heard that the Florida man who is a suspect in the mailing of bombs to prominent Democrats was one of his supporters.

Speaking to reporters as he departed the White House for a rally in North Carolina, Trump also said he will not contact former President Barack Obama and the other people targeted by the bomber.
