US prosecutors have indicted a Connecticut man who said he had threatened to kill President Donald Trump and sent threats and messages containing suspicious white powder to others.

Sixteen charges were filed against Gary Gravelle, 51, including the president’s threat in September 2018 to send an envelope containing a white marketer and a handwritten letter “M”.

According to the indictment, the man sent similar envelopes to a temple, mosque and branch of the National Association for the Support of Colored People.

Officials said the letter containing the powder was vital but proved to be harmless.

Gravel also sent e-mails and telephone calls during which he threatened to detonate bombs in Vermont, Washington and several sites in Connecticut, including government buildings and a mental health facility.

If convicted, he faces a maximum sentence of 140 years’ imprisonment
