Vanessa Trump taken to hospital as precaution after white powder sent to her home
The suspicious letter that sent President Donald Trump's daughter-in-law to a Manhattan hospital was postmarked from Boston and appeared to contain corn starch, multiple senior law enforcement officials told NBC News.
The letter was addressed to Vanessa Trump's husband, Donald Trump Jr., the president's eldest son, officials said.
Vanessa Trump and two other people were taken to New York Presbyterian-Weill Cornell Medical Center strictly as a precaution.
The NYPD said the white powder in the envelope was deemed to be non-hazardous and was taken to a lab for further analysis. More testing is being done, but officials said it appeared the substance was harmless corn starch....
The cornstarch in the US mail, has a long, irritating history. I suppose I'm being halfway facetious, in having the post office install cornstarch detectors?
