Trump Says 'Great Job' to Law Enforcement After Austin Bombings Suspect Blows Himself Up

President Donald Trump Wednesday congratulated law enforcement after the suspect in a series of bombings in Austin, Texas, blew himself up.

The unnamed suspect reportedly blew himself up early Wednesday morning inside his vehicle as a SWAT team homed in on him near the suburb of Round Rock, Texas, local officials said. The 24-year-old white man was believed to be responsible for at least six bombs resulting in the death of two people and five more injured. Officials believe they know the suspect's identity but were waiting for his body to be identified.

Trump, who often uses Twitter to praise law enforcement, took to social media to proclaim the suspect dead.

"AUSTIN BOMBING SUSPECT IS DEAD. Great job by law enforcement and all concerned!," the president tweeted.

Trump has routinely shown that he has little issue with suspects facing serious allegations being killed. On Monday, the president rolled out his plan to tackle the opioid crisis, including his push for certain drug dealers to be put to death.

"If we don't get tough on the drug dealers, we are wasting our time," Trump said in New Hampshire.

Last year, Trump also called for the suspect in an attack on New York that left eight people dead to face the death penalty. Long before he was president, in 1989, Trump paid for full page-ads calling for five black and Latino men to get the death penalty after they were accused of brutally raping a woman in Central Park. The group of men, dubbed "The Central Park Five," were later proved innocent.

Trump's praise of law enforcement Wednesday came after weeks and months of attacks on the FBI and his celebration over the firing of the agency's former deputy director Andrew McCabe last month.

Austin police chief Brian Manley stated the suspect's motive for the bombings was unknown, but also stressed officials did not know if more bombs had been planted.

"We still need to remain vigilant," Manley said. "We do not know where he has been in the past 24 hours."

Manley added that the investigation will continue, and it remains unclear if the deceased suspect was solely responsible.

"This investigation is still underway, so we cannot say that this was an individual acting on their own."
