Vanessa Trump rushed to hospital after receiving letter containing White Powder

Vanessa Trump, daughter-in-law to US President Donald Trump was taken to the hospital after receiving a letter containing a white substance.

The frightening episode happened after 10am on Monday when Vanessa, 40, opened the letter addressed to her husband, Donald Trump Jr., at her mother's midtown Manhattan apartment.

She called 911 immediately and said she was coughing and felt nauseous.

The former model, her mother Bonnie Haydon and another person were decontaminated and taken to New York Presbyterian-Weill Cornell Medical Center as a precaution, according to NY Fire Department officials. 

Police later said the substance wasn’t dangerous and law enforcement sources told the New York Post that the powder turned out to be cornstarch. 

Officially though, an NYPD spokesman wouldn't say what the powder was but said it was 'deemed to be non-hazardous' and is being taken to their lab for 'further analysis'. 

Vanessa praised the NYPD, FDNY and Secret Service after she was discharged from hospital..

'Thank you so much for all the help today in NYC! I appreciate all the quick response to make sure that I was safe!' she tweeted. 

Her husband also thanked the personnel for making a 'rough day manageable'.  

In an earlier tweet, Trump Jr said he was disgusted and disturbed by the incident.  

Ivanka Trump sent her thoughts from Washington, DC.

'Thinking of @MrsVanessaTrump & wishing I was by her side today. No one deserves to be frightened this way. There is no excuse,' she tweeted
