Letter to Trump Jr. said 'you're an very bad person'

Donald Trump Junior

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 U.S. Secret Service, which is tasked with protecting the immediate families of presidents, confirmed only that it was investigating a suspicious item sent to someone it is protecting. Out of caution, officials say investigators will conduct a thorough probe of the event.

She was subsequently taken to the hospital as a precaution, along with two others, police said.

"You're an very bad person and now you get what you deserve", the threatening note read, according to police.

None of the kids was present when she opened the envelope, sources have said. This is why people hate you.

The EU Economy with the Fastest Growth since 2007
The final three months of the year saw exports contribute more strongly to growth than they had between July and September. Gross fixed capital formation in machinery and equipment was also up on the previous quarter.

Later, the Republican president's daughter-in-law posted a tweet thanking New York's police and fire departments, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Secret Service for their help. It's vague what the "white powder" was.

"Thankful that Vanessa & my children are safe and unharmed after the incredibly scary situation that occurred this morning", Trump Jr.

In both cases, the white powdery substance was tested and found to be non-hazardous.

Vanessa was sent home hours later with at least one of their five children, none of whom was at home when the incident happened.

Both she and her husband thanked police for their response to the scare, and in a tweet Monday, Trump Jr., speculated that whoever was responsible was a political opponent of his family.
