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.”
