Vanessa “was coughing and felt nauseous.”
Donald Trump, Jr.’s wife Vanessa is at a New York City hospital after she opened an envelope with white powder. From ABC7NY:
The letter was addressed to Donald Trump Jr. and sent to the couple’s apartment on East 54th Street in Manhattan.
His wife, Vanessa, opened the letter just after 10 a.m. She and two other people were decontaminated by firefighters at the scene and taken to a nearby hospital for evaluation.
They appear to be fine, officials said.
Police and Secret Service agents are at the scene investigating.
An updated report from the AP says that “she was coughing and felt nauseous.” So maybe this wasn’t a hoax:
Detectives from the New York Police Department’s intelligence division and Secret Service agents were investigating.
“The Secret Service and our law enforcement partners in New York City are investigating a suspicious package addressed to one of our protectees received today in New York, New York. This is an active investigation and we cannot comment any further,” Secret Service Special Agent Jeffrey Adams said in a statement.
