Ex-stripper admits having sent 16 pipe bombs to critics of Trump such as Robert DeNiro

A former stripper has pleaded guilty mailing explosives for prominent critics Donald Trump, including Hollywood star Robert DeNiro.

Cesar Sayoc, 57, admitted that he sent 16 devices that were "designed to look like pipe bombs," consisting of a plastic pipe filled with fireworks and fertilizer powder, a digital clock and wires.

Sayoc made a list of the intended recipients of his packages, including Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, US Senators Cory Booker and Kamala Harris, billionaire investor and democratic donor George Soros, former CIA director John Brennan, actor Robert DeNiro and news channel CNN.

Sayoc, a part-time pizza delivery boy and grocer, was arrested in October after a four-day manhunt.

At that time he lived in a white van covered with pro-Trump stickers, the slogan "CNN SUCKS" and images of democratic leaders with red cross hairs on their faces.

All of his intended goals are either prominent Democratic politicians or critics of Trump.

A Brooklynite and registered republican, Sayoc abused democrats, Muslims and liberals on Facebook and Twitter.

He was previously arrested several times for domestic violence, theft and other charges, including the threat of a bomb attack on an electrical company during a billing dispute.

He was a supporter of Donald Trump

Sayoc went on to argue in front of American district judge Jed Rakoff in the federal court of Manhattan, speaking in a trembling, shaky voice that often fell in whispers.

After describing what he did, he broke out in sobs, unable to speak for a few seconds.

"I know these actions were wrong and I am extremely sorry," he finally said.

When Judge Sayoc asked whether he intended to explode the devices, or to kill or injure people, Sayoc said he did not.

He admitted, however, that he knew there was a risk that they might explode.

All devices were intercepted before they achieved their intended goals, and none went out.

Hollywood actor and Trump critic Robert DeNiro were among the intended goals

In addition to the use of weapons of mass destruction, the charges include sending explosives for the purpose of killing or injuring people or property, and transferring threats through inter-state trade.

Sayoc stands for life in prison when he is convicted on 12 September.
