Vanessa Trump Speaks Out on Powder Scare: ‘I Know Firsthand What it is Like to be Targeted and Terrorized by a Coward’
In the wake of a series of mail bombs being sent to CNN, the Obamas, the Clintons and others, the wife of Donald Trump Jr., spoke out to Axios about when she was targeted by a mailed envelope filled with powder.
According to Vanessa Trump‘s statement:
This is personal for me because I know firsthand what it is like to be targeted and terrorized by a coward with a vendetta. Back in February I opened an envelope intended for my husband Don, which covered my face, hands and clothing in white powder and left me terrified.
I was rushed to the hospital, evaluated and put on Cipro for the longest two weeks of my life, and while they worked to identify whether the white powder was deadly, I spent the entire time thinking about the horrifying possibility that I would never see my 5 beautiful children again.
Trump Jr. has also spoken out about the powder threat, responding to a tweet by CNN’s Jim Acosta as the same day as the CNN bomb scare writing, “my wife actually opened an exploding envelope of white powder intended for me.”
Jim, did you or your colleagues take any responsibility for your rhetoric in constantly calling my family Racists and Nazis for 2 years when my wife actually opened an exploding envelope of white powder intended for me? What about when it happend to my brother? https://t.co/TpMTk17x9W
