An envelope containing a non harmful white powder addressed to Donald Trump Jr. was sent to a Manhattan apartment building unit that belongs to Trump Jr.'s wife, Vanessa, the president's daughter-in-law, on Monday. It was being taken to a lab in the city for further analysis, according to law enforcement officials. It's not clear who sent the envelope but it was postmarked from Boston.
Vanessa Trump, 40, called 911 to report coughing and nausea and was taken to a hospital for observation, also strictly as a precaution. Police and other emergency units remained on the scene Monday afternoon as NYPD intelligence detectives and Secret Service agents investigated. “I appreciate all the quick response to make sure that I was safe !”, on Monday evening Vanessa Trump tweeted.

“Truly disgusting that certain individuals choose to express their opposing views with such disturbing behavior," was the message from her husband. The president hasn't commented on the episode. Lab test results for the powder are expected Tuesday. The couple Trump Jr. and Vanessa Trump has five children. None of the kids were home at the time of the incident. n March 2016, police detectives and FBI agents investigated a threatening letter sent to the Manhattan apartment of Donald Trump Jr.'s brother, Eric, that also contained a white powder that turned out to be harmless.
