Vanessa Trump, wife of Donald Jr., taken to hospital after exposure to white powder
Donald Trump Jr.'s wife opened an envelope that contained white powder, felt ill and has been taken to a New York City hospital, police say.
New York Police Department said Vanessa Trump called 911 Monday morning after opening a letter addressed to Donald Trump Jr. at their midtown Manhattan apartment. Police said she reported coughing and felt nauseous.
The Trump Organization didn't immediately respond to a request for comment, and it is still unclear what the powder was.
Detectives from the NYPD's intelligence division and Secret Service agents are investigating. A spokesperson for the Secret Service hasn't responded to a request for comment.
Police said a hazardous materials unit is also at the scene.
