A mysterious white substance was delivered to former President Obama’s office in D.C. on Tuesday.
Secret Service, FBI, fire crews and police swarmed the World Wildlife Fund Headquarters, where Obama leased an office in 2017. The New York Post reports that the letter arrived from Hong Kong and officials found a white substance inside upon opening it.
Thankfully, the white substance was later revealed to be baby powder.
This incident comes shortly after Donald Trump Jr.’s wife, Vanessa Trump, opened a letter addressed to her husband containing a mysterious white powder. Trump and her mother, Bonnie Haydon, were rushed to New York-Presbyterian Hospital as a precaution. The powder was later revealed to be cornstarch.
Trump also received a threatening letter, which described Donald Jr. as a “terrible person.”
It remains unclear who sent the letters.
