Sayoc now stands accused of mailing 16 explosive devices, despite law enforcement officials previously alleging that he sent 11 critics of the U.S. president a total of 13 different devices.

Outside the NY area, Sayoc is also accused of sending other pipe bombs to former president Barack Obama, former vice president Joe Biden and others. Sayoc, 56, was arrested on 26 October on five charges carrying a potential sentence of almost 50 years.

Prosecutors followed through on a promise to upgrade the charges with an indictment that led with five counts alleging use of a weapon of mass destruction.

The 16 IEDs all had "approximately six inches of PVC pipe packed with explosive material, a small clock, and wiring" according to prosecutors. His social media accounts are filled with anti-Democrat sentiments and racist diatribes. He had been living in a van covered with stickers of Trump and showing images of some Trump opponents with crosshairs over their faces. Officials say that Sayoc also used his phone to conduct a range of misspelled internet searches, like "hilary Clinton hime address" and "address kamila harrias". Those queries started as early as July.

The full list of victims, per prosecutors: Vice President Joseph Biden, Senator Cory Booker, former CIA Director John Brennan, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, CNN, Robert De Niro, Senator Kamala Harris, former Attorney General Eric Holder, former President Barack Obama, George Soros, Thomas Steyer, and U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters.

Mr Sayoc, who was arrested on 26 October after a massive manhunt in Florida, is being held in detention in NY without bail.

No one was injured, as the bombs failed to detonate.

Left-wing journalists, particularly at CNN, took every opportunity to point out that the targets of the bombs were largely people who had been criticized by President Trump. "He now faces justice from a nation of laws". He is being held without bail.

Sayoc appeared in NY earlier this week after being transferred from Florida.

The case has been assigned to U.S. District Judge Jed Rakoff.
