Donald Trump Jr’s Wife Taken To Hospital After Opening Letter Containing ‘White Powder’
The wife of Donald Trump Jr was taken to hospital after the President’s elsest son was sent a package containing a white powder.
Vanessa Trump opened the letter at around 10am at the couple’s apartment in the Sutton Place neighbourhood of New York.
NBC said a preliminary investigation suggested the substance sent to the couple’s home was not hazardous and that Ms Trump, her mother and one other person were taken to hospital as a precautionary measure.
The package was reportedly addressed to the 40-year-old Mr Trump Jr, who with his brother Eric, has been running the Trump Organisation since their father was elected to the White House.
The Associated Press said, Ms Trump Jr dialled 911 and that she was taken to hospital after coughing and saying she felt nauseous.
“The substance had arrived by mail and it was addressed to Donald Trump Jr,” said New York Police Department spokesman Carlos Nieves.
