US President Donald Trump's daughter-in-law Vanessa Trump was taken to a New York hospital on Monday after she opened a piece of mail containing an unidentified white powder that was later determined to be non-hazardous, officials said.
Vanessa Trump, the wife of the president's eldest son Donald Jr., was hospitalised after she complained of nausea following her exposure, New York officials said. Two other people who were present were also taken to the hospital.
"The substance had arrived by mail and it was addressed to Donald Trump Jr.," said New York Police Department spokesman Carlos Nieves.
US authorities have been on alert for mail containing white powder since 2001, when envelopes laced with anthrax were sent to media outlets and US lawmakers, killing five people.
How are things between President Donald Trump and his other daughter, Tiffany, the one he doesn't have a disturbing attraction to? Pretty awful and only getting worse, People reports, despite the back-to-back appearances together this week.
“They always had a strained relationship her whole life, and it got exacerbated by the presidency,” a source close to the 24-year-old Georgetown Law School student told the outlet. “It’s gotten much worse now.”
“Since the inauguration, Tiffany and her father have sometimes gone for months without speaking and she went a very long time without seeing him,” the source continued. “The last time she was at a family function with him, it was awkward for her and she didn’t feel totally welcome.”
On-again couple Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin celebrated July Fourth together at life coach and model Tinamarie Clark and David Rosenberg’s estate in Bridgehampton — but they weren’t the guests getting the most buzz.
A tipsy insider noted: “There was Secret Service and a lot of security at the house, so they had to be there for someone important. I had way too much to drink so I didn’t recognize anyone.” Page Six learned that the heavily guarded guest was Tiffany Trump, who wore a long blue dress and Instagrammed her journey to the event — on a party bus, complete with dancing, drinking, music and a big-screen TV — with Tao Group’s Chris Allam and party boy David “Papi” Einhorn.
Trump’s been spending time with Allam, who posted a photo with the first daughter this week.
Tiffany Trump and her longtime friend Peter Brant Jr. enjoyed a night out on the town this week, and she couldn't resist snapping a selfie with the wild child heir.
In the early hours of Monday morning, the 24-year-old first daughter took to Instagram Stories post a photo of herself striking a pose with Peter, the 24-year-old socialite son of billionaire art collector Peter Brant and model Stephanie Seymour.
The two pals are huddled close together in the snapshot, which shows the model leaning his head into Tiffany's chest while running his hand through his hair.
Ivanka and Tiffany Trump have a unique relationship. The half-sisters are 12 years apart (Ivanka is about to turn 37 and Tiffany just turned 25). Tiffany was raised by her mom Marla Maples in California after she divorced Donald Trump in 1999, while Ivanka, whose mother is Ivana Trump, grew up on the East Coast.
But in a 2016 People magazine interview, Ivanka said that "we would see each other on all of the holidays and talk to each other frequently," even though they weren't always on the same coast. "She's my little sister! I've been close to Tiffany her whole life, and I really love her," Ivanka said. During the 2016 presidential campaign, they had a chance to spend more time together and grow closer. Now, Tiffany is attending Georgetown Law School in D.C. and is mostly out of the spotlight, unlike her older sister, who's a senior White House advisor.
How close are they, really? Ahead, body language expert Patti Wood, author of Snap: Making the Most of First Impressions, Body Language, and Charisma, gives us an inside look at Ivanka and Tiffany's relationship.
