A Trump supporter who admitted sending mail bombs to critics of the US president has been jailed for 20 years.

According to the BBC, Cesar Sayoc, a 57-year-old ex-pizza delivery man from Florida, posted 16 pipe bombs to 13 targets last October.

Prosecutors called for a life sentence for Sayoc, who they said was motivated by a “hate-filled ideology”.

His targets included well-known media figures and Democrats, including former president Barack Obama and 2016 election nominee Hillary Clinton.

Sayoc also posted the packages – stuffed with explosives, wires and alarm clocks – to former vice-president Joe Biden, former CIA director John Brennan, senators Cory Booker and Kamala Harris, and actor Robert De Niro.
