Mysterious White Powder Also Sent to Obama

A day after Vanessa Trump opened her mail to find a mysterious white substance, authorities are reporting that a white powder has also been sent to former President Obama's Washington, D.C. office.

Fox 5 TV has the details.

The incident was reported Tuesday around 12:30 p.m. at 1250 24th Street in Northwest D.C. in the West End neighborhood. The former president has leased office space in the building since leaving office in January 2017. The building is owned by the non-profit World Wildlife Fund, which has its headquarters in the space.

D.C. Fire and EMS Battalion Chief Edward Smith tells FOX 5 a letter was mailed to the World Wildlife Fund office from Hong Kong, and it reportedly contained baby powder. It had no return address.

It is still unclear whether Obama was in the office when the questionable mail arrived.

Vanessa Trump, who is married to President Trump's son Donald Trump, Jr., was one of three people sent to the hospital Monday for decontamination after being exposed to a white substance at her Manhattan apartment. After an investigation, the substance was reported to be cornstarch.
