Donald Trump Jr’s wife Vanessa Trump was hospitalized Monday morning after opening a letter with a white powder inside.
The former model, 40, was at her parents’ apartment in a building in the east 50s around 10am when she opened the letter addressed to her husband and started coughing and felling nauseous, a source with direct knowledge of the incident told DailyMail.com
She and two other people were decontaminated and taken to New York Presbyterian-Weill Cornell Medical Center as a precaution, New York City Fire Department officials said. They appear to be fine now.
Law enforcement sources told the New York Post that the powder turned out to be cornstarch.
An NYPD spokesman wouldn’t officially say what the powder was but said it was ‘deemed to be non-hazardous’ and is being taken to their lab for ‘further analysis’.
The NYPD’s intelligence division and the Secret Service are investigating the incident.
The incident recalled the scary days after 9/11 when letters containing lethal anthrax spores were sent to the offices of several politicians and media outlets – resulting in five deaths.
