For the First Family, safety is a constant concern.

According to law enforcement sources, the unknown sender, who post-marked the letter in Boston, wrote: “You are an awful person. This is why people hate you. You are getting what you deserve. So shut the f–k up.”

The letter arrived at the home of Donald Trump, Jr.’s mother-in-law at approximately 10am on Monday. After Vanessa Trump called 911 after opening the package and discovering the white powder inside.

Sources said the couple’s children were not present at the time. Mrs. Trump did not receive any harm, but was briefly hospitalized and decontaminated for safety.

The white powder turned out to be cornstarch, sources said.

Mail at the home of the younger Trump’s in-laws is reportedly not screened in the way his own is.

“This is not a secure site,” a source said of the home of Vanessa Trump’s mother. Secret Service is not going through [the] mail.”

On Tuesday, white powder was delivered to the office of former president Barack Obama in Washington, D.C. The substance was later found to be baby powder, Fox 5 DC reported.

After the scare, Trump, Jr. thanked local emergency responders and condemned the sender of the powder-filled parcel.

Be it against the Trumps or the Obamas, threats of violence have no place in American politics.
