Breaking news comes out of Manhattan just now. Vanessa Trump, President Donald Trump's daughter-in-law was about half an hour ago taken to a Manhattan hospital as a precaution after she had opened a suspicious letter which contained a so far unidentified substance (a white powder).

The letter was addressed to Vanessa Trump's husband, Donald Trump Jr., the eldest child of the president and his ex-wife Ivana.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">JUST IN: Donald Trump Jr.&#39;s wife Vanessa Trump was taken to a hospital after receiving a letter containing white powder inside <a href="https://t.co/TOPGtUH5e7">https://t.co/TOPGtUH5e7</a> <a href="https://t.co/QgVO91ErwH">pic.twitter.com/QgVO91ErwH</a></p>&mdash; Fox News (@FoxNews) <a href="https://twitter.com/FoxNews/status/963118107819683840?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">February 12, 2018</a></blockquote>

After the opening of the letter, no less than three people currently at the Trump residence were rushed to the New York Presbyterian-Weill Cornell Medical Center. The New York City Fire Department said it was done strictly as a precaution at this time.

So far, there is luckily no indication that anyone suffered any injuries and no sign that the substance was a hazardous material or a biological agent.

<b>Update - Vanessa Trump Anthrax Scare</b>

Son of the US President, Mr Donald Trump Jr, confirmed later that same evening that Vanessa and the children were safe whilst condemning at the same time the behavior of the individual sending the letter to his home.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Thankful that Vanessa &amp; my children are safe and unharmed after the incredibly scary situation that occurred this morning. Truly disgusting that certain individuals choose to express their opposing views with such disturbing behavior.</p>&mdash; Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) <a href="https://twitter.com/DonaldJTrumpJr/status/963163553074221057?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">February 12, 2018</a></blockquote>

This is a mother of 5 children who never did anything to anyone but support her husband. My prayers are with them.
