Authorities intercepted a suspicious package mailed to billionaire Tom Steyer, CNN reported Friday. He is the 13th anti-Trump activist to have been targeted.

Federal officials intercepted packages Friday morning intended for Sens. Cory Booker of New Jersey and Kamala Harris of California, as well as Steyer, a wealth Democratic donor from California who spearheaded a campaign to impeach President Donald Trump.

Packages have been sent to the Clintons, former President Barack Obama, former CIA Director John Brennan, liberal billionaire George Soros, former Vice President Joe Biden, and several others since Wednesday. (RELATED: Joe Biden Becomes 9th Bomb Target)

A Department of Justice spokesperson confirmed Friday that federal authorities arrested Cesar Sayoc of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, in connection to the packages.

Trump addressed the investigation and the man’s arrest at a rally at the White House on Friday.

“We must never allow political violence to take root in America,” he said at one point. “I’m committed to doing everything in my power as president to stop it.”

The packages had Florida Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s office listed as a return address, and police eventually tracked at least some of the devices in the packages back to Florida.
