The social media accounts of Cesar Sayoc, the man arrested by federal authorities Friday in connection with a string of pipe bombs sent to a dozen top liberals, reveals a look into his deep hatred of Democrats and unwavering support for President Trump.
On Friday, police arrested Cesar Sayoc Jr., 56, of Florida and seized a white, full-size van with pro-Trump and anti-media bumper stickers covering its windows and doors. One of the stickers, for example, read “CNN sucks” — a frequent chant at Trump rallies across the country.
A Twitter account, with the handle @hardrock2016, was created under the man’s name and features a cascade of memes, photographs, and news articles critical of Trump’s top political nemeses.
“Democrats at it again more scams running out control ripping off elderly,” one post read.
“Go Republicans Red Wave Tsunami coming,” another post boasted. Several posts on what appear to be his Facebook page also show the man attending a "Make America Great Again" rally.
The social media accounted also targeted liberal billionaire George Soros, who was sent one of the packages on Monday. In a video posted on the account on June 7, the man took a video selfie at what appears to be a Trump rally chanting the president’s name.
Sayoc's LinkedIn page states that he once aspired to become "a Horse Doctor" because he had always had "a love for animals."
The Department of Justice is scheduled to hold a press conference at 2:30 p.m. on Friday regarding the pipe-bomb case.
