The 2016 presidential race just got deadly serious for Donald Trump. His son, Eric Trump, received a letter filled with ‘white powder’ on March 17, along with a message reportedly warning that if Donald doesn’t drop out, more harm will come to his family!
Eric Trump, 32, and his family are thankful to be alive. The son of the Republican presidential candidate, Donald Trump, 69, received a letter full of powder and a dire warning, just days after an activist group declared “total war” on his father!
Law enforcement and counter-terrorism officials rushed to Trump Parc East in New York City on March 17. A suspicious letter was sent to Eric from somewhere in Massachusetts, according to the CBS News. The letter, which was opened by his wife, Lara Trump, 34, contained a powdery substance and a threatening message. However, sources tell CBS that a preliminary field test indicated that the white powder wasn’t hazardous. Thank goodness!
The letter reportedly said that if Donald didn’t pull out of the 2016 presidential race, more harm would befall his family. Keep in mind that the letter arrived the same day that the hacktivist group Anonymous leaked a list of Donald’s personal information. Among the info was Trump’s Social Security number and — surprise, surprise — addresses of all his family members.
Anonymous declared “total war” on the GOP frontrunner due to Trump’s “inconsistent and hateful campaign.” A member of the group, while wearing a signature Guy Fawkes mask, released a video on March 15, saying that the group needs “to dismantle his campaign and sabotage his brand. This is not a declaration of war. This is a declaration of total war.” And sending threatening messages through the mail is illegal. Don’t forget that.

Sadly, it seems that Donald has been in the middle of a war instead of a political campaign. The Republican candidate had to cancel a Chicago political rally after violent clashes between anti-Trump protestors and pro-Trump supporters broke out.
It’s not like Donald’s playing the role of peacekeeper. When answering a question about the likely chance of a brokered Republican National Convention in July, Donald said that there would be “riots” if he doesn’t receive the GOP’s nomination.
Are you shocked that Donald’s son received a threatening envelope full of white powder, HollywoodLifers? It’s a good thing that everyone’s okay.
