Police Investigate Suspicious White Powder at Barack Obama’s Office


Police in Washington, D.C. are investigating after a mysterious white powder was found in the building where President Barack Obama has an office.

According to local officials, the powder was in an envelope that was mailed from Hong Kong to the World Wildlife Fund, which owns the office building, where they also have their headquarters. It is unknown if Obama was at the office at the time the envelope was opened.

D.C. Fire and EMS Battalion Chief Edward Smith told local FOX 5 that the substance was simply baby powder.  The Obama family lives in the same neighborhood as the office.

This comes just one day after Donald Trump Jr.‘s wife Vanessa Trump received a letter at her apartment that also contained white powder. Mrs. Trump called 911 and went to a local hospital to be safe, but the powder was determined to be corn starch.
