"It's a time of deep divisions, and we have to do everything we can to bring our country together," Clinton says. "We also have to elect candidates who will try to do the same."
Clinton addressed the terrifying ordeal soon afterward while at a campaign event in Miami.
"I wanna say a few words about the news this morning of suspicious packages being sent to various public figures and a news organization," the former senator and First Lady said, according to CNN. "Many of you and others across our country have asked after me and my family, and I'm very grateful for that. We are fine, thanks to the men and women of the Secret Service who intercepted the package addressed to us long before it made its way to our home. Every day, we are grateful for their service and commitment -- obviously never more than today."
"But it is a troubling time, isn't it?" she continued. "It's a time of deep divisions, and we have to do everything we can to bring our country together. We also have to elect candidates who will try to do the same, who will set goals who will lift up every single Floridian and American."
Early Wednesday morning, suspicious packages believed to contain explosive devices were intercepted at the homes of Barack and Michelle Obama, Bill and Hillary Clinton, and the New York office of CNN.
A device was discovered around 1 a.m. by a technician screening mail for the Clintons in Westchester County. Another suspicious package addressed to former President Obama was also intercepted by Secret Service in Washington D.C.
Soon after these threats were made public, the New York office of CNN was evacuated due to the discovery of a third suspicious package. On Monday of this week, a similar device was found at the home of billionaire philanthropist and prominent democrat George Soros.
President Donald Trump took hours to issue any kind of statement after authorities intercepted the various suspicious packages. He simply retweeted a statement from Vice President Mike Pence and added "I agree wholeheartedly."

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said, "We condemn the attempted violent attacks recently made against President Obama, President Clinton, Secretary Clinton and other public figures. These terrorizing acts are despicable, and anyone responsible will be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law."
