There are some disturbing details about the suspect, who is by all accounts not a fan of Donald Trump.
The arrest comes after a series of threats around the country:
BREAKING: At least *19 Jewish community centers & day schools in 11 states received bomb threats today: AL DE FL IN MD MI NJ NC NY PA & VA.

After President Trump spoke about “radical Islamic terrorists” in his speech to a joint session of Congress, George Takei appeared to already have a bead on at least one of the suspects in the Jewish Community Center threats:
