Donald Trump’s Son Received Envelope of White Powder From Massachusetts
Authorities are investigating a suspicious package sent to the son of Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump, containing white powder and sent from Massachusetts.
The envelope was sent to Eric Trump’s New York City apartment, located on the 14th floor of Trump Parc East, a luxury residential building on Central Park South. The Secret Service, FBI, and New York Police Department are all investigating the matter, CBS News reports, and an initial analysis of the powder indicated it was nothing hazardous.
“At approximately 7:15 p.m., the NYPD responded to a residential building at 100 Central Park South to investigate a report of a suspicious letter received by a tenant, police told ABC News. “The letter has been removed and is being examined by law enforcement authorities. No injuries have been reported in connection with this incident.”
An enclosed letter, postmarked from Massachusetts and opened by Eric’s wife Lara, reportedly threatened harm to Trump’s children if he does not end his controversial presidential campaign.
