Donald Trump’s son, Eric Trump, received a threatening letter containing a suspicious white powder in the mail at his Manhattan home. The letter warned that if Donald Trump did not withdraw from the Republican presidential race, his five children would be harmed.
Eric’s wife, Lara, opened the letter, but no one was hurt. The FBI, the U.S. Secret Service, and the New York Police Department are investigating the matter, Inside Edition reported (see video). Sources said the white powder contained in the envelope was sent to a lab for testing, but preliminary results suggest it is not dangerous.
The threatening letter had a Massachusetts postmark and was mailed to Eric Trump’s Central Park South apartment. Eric is an outspoken supporter of his father, and frequently appears on TV to speak on his dad’s behalf.
The letter comes shortly after Donald Trump received a death threat on Facebook from a 23-year-old Muslim man from Egypt. In early March, a California immigration court ruled to deport Emad El-Din Ali Mohamed Nasr El Sayed back to Egypt after he threatened to assassinate Trump, as Examiner has reported.
El Sayed had come to the United States to enroll at a flight school in Los Angeles. He was arrested Feb. 12 after posting a photo of Trump on Facebook with the following note:
I am willing to kill Donald Trump and serve a life sentence. The whole world would thank me for doing that.”
The FBI decided not to pursue charges against El Sayed when the California immigration court revoked his visa and ruled that he be deported back to Egypt (where there are plenty of flight schools). El Sayed is from Cairo but spent much of his life in Saudi Arabia.
The Egyptian student said he made the assassination threat because he was upset by Trump’s calls to temporarily ban non-U.S. Muslims from entering the United States. Donald Trump has received numerous death threats since announcing his presidential candidacy.
Trump has been under fire after calling for a temporary ban on Muslims entering the U.S. following the San Bernardino terrorist attacks amid the Muslim rape epidemic sweeping across Europe. The alarming rape trend was spotlighted after 821 women were assaulted, robbed or raped by 1,000 Muslim men in Cologne, Germany, on New Year’s Eve, as Examiner has reported.
Similar attacks also occurred that same night in Switzerland, Sweden, Finland and France — all of which have taken in millions of Muslim refugees from the Middle East and North Africa during the past few years. Rapes in Sweden and Norway — two of the most feminist and gender-equal countries in the world — have escalated in recent years as their Muslim refugee/migrant populations have soared.
