The wife of Donald Trump Jr. was rushed to the hospital today multiple news outlets are reporting.
Shortly after 10 a.m. this morning, Vanessa Trump opened an envelope only to find a mysterious white powder fall out.
Wow – this is not good and we hope she is ok.
Vanessa Trump was at home and the police are saying she was taken to the hospital as a precaution.
This is not the first time some nut job has tried to attack the Trump children. Last year, Eric Trump received a threatening letter with suspicious (but harmless it turned out) white powder
From the New York Post:
President Trump’s daughter-in-law was hospitalized Monday after she was exposed to a white, powdery substance when she opened an envelope that was addressed to her husband, Donald Trump Jr., law enforcement sources said. Vanessa Trump opened the letter at 10 a.m. at an East 54th Street apartment in the posh Sutton Place neighborhood, sources said. She was taken to a local hospital as a precaution. It was not immediately clear what the substance was.
We hope this is just another stupid liberal prank but it underscores that the rhetoric, on both sides, has gone too far.
Can’t we disagree about politics without resorting to this? Can’t we have an honest debate about the direction of our country without our public officials having to fear for their safety?
This needs to stop.
Update: The envelope was opened by his wife; she and two others were decontaminated by firefighters at the scene and taken to the hospital to be checked out.
Police later said the substance was determined to be non-hazardous.
