This is so scary!

Donald Trump Jr’s wife, Vanessa has opened an envelope addressed to her husband and she has now been hospitalised.

The envelope was opened on Monday morning and it contained a white powder substance.

The former model, 40, was at her parent’s apartment in Manhattan when she opened it. A source told The Daily Mail that she started coughing and feeling nauseous.

According to The New York Post, her mother, Bonnie Haydon handled the letter before giving it to her daughter.

Both mother and daughter were taken to hospital to be decontaminated as a precaution, it is reported both are fine now. 

Donald Trump Jr. took to Twitter to tell his 2.5 million fans he was thankful his family was safe. He added how disgusted he was by the behaviour of the people who conducted the prank. 

A NYPD spokesman wouldn't say what the powder was but said it was 'deemed to be non-hazardous' and is being taken to their lab for 'further analysis'.

Law enforcement sources told the Post that the powder turned out to be cornstarch.

“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.” the Secret Service said in a statement.
