On Monday, Vanessa Trump did something millions of Americans do every day and opened her mail. The only difference is that someone hated her family so much that the simple task could be deadly. Her husband issued a fiery response to the cowards who put his family at risk.

Mrs. Trump is recuperating today after a terrible scare at her home Monday. While opening a letter addressed to her husband Don Jr., the mother of five noticed a white powdery substance in the envelope.

Multiple reports noted that Mrs. Trump was coughing and experiencing nausea after opening the envelope. As a precaution, firefighters took President Trump’s daughter-in-law to New York Presbyterian-Weill Cornell Medical Center along with two others who were present.

Fortunately for everyone involved, initial tests of the substance found it to be non-hazardous corn-starch. However, authorities sent the powder to the lab for further testing. The Secret Service and NYPD’s intelligence division are investigating the threat.

While the Trump Organization did not immediately respond to requests for comments, it didn’t take long for Trump Jr. to post a message about the ordeal. After confirming his wife and children were safe, he held nothing back about the attackers.

“Thankful that Vanessa & my children are safe and unharmed after the incredibly scary situation that occurred this morning,” he wrote on Facebook. “Truly disgusting that certain individuals choose to express their opposing views with such disturbing behavior.”

In a similar response, First Daughter Ivanka Trump expressed both concern and outrage over the incident. “Thinking of @MrsVanessaTrump & wishing I was by her side today,” posted Ivanka. “No one deserves to be frightened this way. There is no excuse.”

Sadly, she’s exactly right. Vanessa Trump is a wife, daughter, and mother and regardless of what someone thinks about her husband, this is unacceptable. One can only wonder where the feminist outcry is?
