Mrs. Trump was at her parents’ apartment when she opened the letter addressed to her husband and started coughing and felling nauseous.

Daily Mail reports that the letter contained white powder inside.

It said Mrs. Trump, a former model, and two other people were decontaminated and taken to hospital.

According to the report, law enforcement sources said the powder turned out to be cornstarch and ‘deemed to be non-hazardous’ and is being taken to their lab for ‘further analysis’.

Donald Jr, 40, is the eldest son of President Trump, followed by his sister Ivanka, 36; brother Eric, 34; half-sister Tiffany, 24; and half-brother Barron, 11.

As a child of the president, Donald Jr and his family were assigned a Secret Service detail when his father was elected. He voluntarily gave up his Secret Service protection in September, wanting more privacy, but his detail was reinstated about a week later.
