  • Vanessa Trump spoke to Axios about her
    experience of receiving an envelope of white powder intended
    for her now-estranged husband Donald Trump Jr.
  • The powder turned out to be not harmful.
  • She said the experience was terrifying, and she was
    afraid she wouldn’t see her children again.
  • Vanessa compared the experience to this week’s serial
    attempted bombings of President Donald Trump’s critics,
    condemning them.

Vanessa Trump spoke out on Friday about her experience receiving an envelope filled with
a mysterious white powder in February
 intended for her
now-estranged husband, Donald
Trump Jr.

The powder turned out not to be harmful, but she was rushed to
the hospital and put on anti-infection medication for two weeks.

“I was rushed to the hospital, evaluated and put on Cipro for the
longest two weeks of my life,” Vanessa told Axios in a
statement
. “While they worked to identify whether the white
powder was deadly, I spent the entire time thinking about the
horrifying possibility that I would never see my five beautiful
children again.”

The comments come as Florida resident Cesar Soyac Jr. was
arrested on charges related to allegedly sending bombs to
prominent Democratic politicians and other perceived critics of
President Donald Trump.

Vanessa condemned those attacks.

“Let me start by applauding law enforcement for swiftly catching
one of the alleged perpetrators behind these recent acts of
terrorism,” she said. “These recent acts are the acts of a coward
and nothing more than terrorism, pure and simple. No one, regardless of political
party or ideology, should ever have to go through what I went
through.”

In March, Massachusetts resident Daniel Frisiello was arrested on charges of
mailing threatening communications for allegedly sending the
envelopes to Donald Trump Jr. and other public figures.

Trump compared this week’s serial attempted bombings to her own
experience in February.

“This is personal for me because I know firsthand what it is like
to be targeted and terrorized by a coward with a vendetta,” she
said. “It was a cowardly act against a mother. And even today,
every time I open the mail, I feel the same fear in my heart as I
did that day.”
