News broke early Friday morning that a suspicious letter containing “white powder” had been sent to GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump’s son, Eric Trump. The NYPD was called, and they are currently examining the substance. The younger Trump has been assisting his father with his campaign.
With seemingly the entire political & media establishment expressing their hate for Trump, the list of who would send his son a possibly deadly chemical agent to kill him is lengthy. It could be Sander’s supporters, or Black Lives Matter who shut down Trump’s rally in Chicago. And of course, it could be an operative of George Soros, the Communist who backed the Chicago shutdown, and has dumped $200k into John Kasich’s campaign, in an effort to put a stop to Trump’s increasing momentum in becoming the GOP nominee.
Of course the left jumped in on Twitter.

Trump has been getting death threats since last year.
This is terrorism, plain and simple. The act was designed to cause fear. The person or person’s behind this should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law, and be deemed terrorists against the United States of America.
A suspicious piece of mail containing white powder was sent to Eric Trump’s New York City apartment Thursday, a Trump Organization source tells ABC News.
The NYPD confirmed to ABC News it responded to a call at Trump Parc East, a high-end residential building located on Central Park South, but it did not identify the recipient of the mail as Donald Trump’s 32-year-old son. The Trump Organization source confirmed the letter was indeed sent to the Trump offspring’s 14th floor apartment.
The NYPD told ABC News, “At approximately 7:15 p.m., the NYPD responded to a residential building at 100 Central Park South to investigate a report of a suspicious letter received by a tenant. The letter has been removed and is being examined by law enforcement authorities.”

The Daily Mail also reported:
Police were called to Eric Trump’s New York home after he received a suspicious package, it has been reported.
Multiple reports suggest the security team of Donald Trump’s second eldest son alerted authorities when they discovered the mysterious mail on Thursday night.
It had arrived at the luxurious Trump Park East, at 100 Central Park South, CBS News first reported.
