Ivanka Offers Support After Vanessa Trump Is Hospitalized

Ivanka Trump offered support Monday for Vanessa Trump after the wife of Donald Trump Jr. was taken to the hospital when she received a package at her New York City residence that contained a suspicious substance.

“Thinking of @MrsVanessaTrump & wishing I was by her side today. No one deserves to be frightened this way,” the first daughter tweeted. Vanessa, along with two other people, were hospitalized as a precaution after President she opened a package from Boston addressed to Donald Trump Jr. that contained white powder, according to NBC News.

“There is no excuse,” she added.

Shortly after reports surfaced about the incident, Donald Trump Jr. tweeted that he was thankful his wife and children were “unharmed” after the “scary situation.”

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

NYPD officials said testing on the suspicious substance revealed that it was non-hazardous, but the material was being taken to a lab for further testing.
