The wife of President Trump’s eldest child has been rushed to a Manhattan hospital after opening an envelope containing white powder, according to reports.
Vanessa Trump, the wife of Donald Trump Jr., was opening a letter addressed to her husband at the couple’s apartment Monday morning when she made the discovery.
The powder was later determined to be corn starch, police sources told the New York Post.
The FDNY responded to the scene. Vanessa Trump and two others received decontamination treatment by responding FDNY firefighters, ABC7 reported.
In a statement posted to Twitter later in the day, Donald Trump Jr. decried the act as "disturbing behavior."
Thankful that Vanessa & my children are safe and unharmed after the incredibly scary situation that occurred this morning. Truly disgusting that certain individuals choose to express their opposing views with such disturbing behavior.— Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) February 12, 2018
His sister, Ivanka Trump, added a tweet of her own, saying, "No one deserves to be frightened this way."
Thinking of @MrsVanessaTrump & wishing I was by her side today. No one deserves to be frightened this way. There is no excuse.— Ivanka Trump (@IvankaTrump) February 12, 2018
The Secret Service is reportedly investigating.
Vanessa Trump married Trump Jr. in 2005. They have five children.
In March 2016, Trump Jr. was sent a white powder that was later determined to be safe. A month later, an envelope containing white powder was sent to Trump Tower.
