(Newser) – The wife of Donald Trump Jr. and two others were taken to the hospital in New York City Monday morning after she opened a letter with a suspicious white powder inside, reports ABC News. The AP reports that Vanessa Trump called 911 because she felt nauseated and began coughing after opening the letter, which NBC News says had been addressed to her husband. The NBC report adds that there's no indication the substance was a hazardous material and characterizes the trip to the hospital as a precaution. Vanessa Trump and the two unidentified people who were with her in the midtown Manhattan residence were being evaluated at New York Presbyterian-Weill Cornell Medical Center.
