Once authorities were notified, FBI, Secret Service, and NYPD arrived at the swanky Central Park South apartment building, reports CBS.The letter is said to have had a Massachusetts postmark and warned that if Trump doesn’t withdraw from the presidential race, harm will come to his family.
The NYPD confirms that it responded to a call at the apartment building, known as Trump Parc East. ABC reports that the Trump Organization later confirmed the letter was indeed mailed to Eric’s 14th floor apartment. It was opened by his wife, Lara.
The white powder has been sent to a lab for testing, but preliminary reports say the substance is not harmful. While the attack was simply a scare tactic, it’s clear that those opposing Trump are getting more and more desperate.
