Trump Jr’s Wife Vanessa Hospitalized After Opening White Powder Letter

From the current information at hand, the mysterious white powder that hospitalized the wife of Donald Trump Jr Monday morning has turned out to be nothing more than cornstarch, reports the U.K.’s Daily Mail.

Other media publications have also termed the powder as harmless but did not identify the substance that Vanessa Trump, 40, came upon while opening a piece of mail addressed to her husband. The incident occurred at Mrs. Trump’s parents’ apartment at tony Sutton Place in Manhattan around 10 AM.

Vanessa Trump was taken to NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center with two others from the household for evaluation. Trump had complained of coughing and nausea following her exposure to the white powder-laced letter.

Trump Jr., 40, is the eldest son of President Donald Trump. He and Vanessa have five children, two daughters and three sons. The kids are often seen in photographs on Trump Jr.’s Instagram page.

The U.S. Secret Service is investigating Monday’s incident along with the New York City Police Department, and so far, there has been no response from the White House. An Haz-Mat NYC truck was seen parked outside of the parents’ apartment. Police are also not giving out further details.

Last year, Eric, the youngest son of President Trump was also sent a letter with a harmless white powder in it at his New York City apartment. Eric Trump’s letter had been a threatening one; at the moment, there is no further information on what the note to Donald Trump Jr. had said.

Authorities are always on the lookout for mail that is sent with mysterious white powder since the days that anthrax-laced letters were forwarded to media outlets and U.S. lawmakers. Since 2001, five people in the United States have died after being exposed to anthrax letters.
