Trump Jr.’s wife in hospital after opening mail with white powder

By Rocco Parascandola

President Trump’s daughter-in-law was taken to a hospital Monday morning after she opened a piece of mail addressed to her husband that contained an unknown white powder, police sources said.

Vanessa Trump, 40, who is married to Donald Trump Jr., did not suffer any complications but was decontaminated at the scene, and then taken as a precaution to Weill Cornell Medical Center.

Sources said authorities were called at about 10 a.m. to the E. 54th St., home of Vanessa Trump’s mother, who was also taken to the hospital for observation. The mother had handled the package before handing it to her daughter. A third person was also taken to the hospital.

The daughter opened the letter, and white powder spilled out. She then called 911.

A preliminary test of the powder indicated it wasn’t dangerous, police said.

Vanessa Trump, a former model, and Trump Jr. have five children, none of whom were home at the time of the incident.

The NYPD and officials from the city departments of Health and Environmental Protection responded to the scene, along with the Office of Emergency Management.

The Secret Service is also investigating, authorities said.
