President Donald Trump on Wednesday finally spoke up about the multiple bombs that have been sent to top Democrats this week -- but he mostly just regurgitated a statement from Vice President Mike Pence.
Instead of releasing his own statement on the attempted killings of his political opponents, the president simply re-tweeted Pence's statement and only added, "I agree wholeheartedly!"

In his original tweet, Pence wrote that "we condemn the attempted attacks against former President Obama, the Clintons, CNN & others" while adding that "these cowardly actions are despicable and have no place in this Country... those responsible will be brought to justice."
Trump's decision to simply re-tweet Pence while adding a mere three-word endorsement drew scorn from Twitter users -- check out some of the reactions below.
