Vanessa Trump, who is married to Donald Trump Jr., was sent to the hospital as a precaution after opening a letter that contained a white powder. According to NBC News, the NYPD has determined that the substance was not hazardous and the Secret Service is investigating the incident.

The parcel was addressed to Donald Trump Jr., but Vanessa ended up opening the letter and then complained of dizziness and nausea following exposure to the powder, according to The New York Times. Three people from the household, including Vanessa and her mother, were taken to the hospital.

The package reportedly had a Boston postmark and also reportedly included an angry letter directed at Donald Trump Jr.

“Thankful that Vanessa & my children are safe and unharmed after the incredibly scary situation that occurred this morning,” Trump Jr. wrote on Twitter. “Truly disgusting that certain individuals choose to express their opposing views with such disturbing behavior.”
