Former #President Obama and his family live in the Kalorama community, which is not that far from the World Wildlife Fund headquarters building and there's no word on whether Obama was in the west end office when the letter incident was reported.

Washington, D.C. authorities quickly reacted Tuesday after a white substance was discovered in mail sent to the offices of former President Barack Obama.

The incident comes on the heels of a similar report regarding President Donald Trump's son, Donald Trump Jr., on Monday, who received a letter containing white powder, prompting a separate Secret Service investigation and the hospitalization of his wife, Vanessa Trump. A package full of a mysterious white powder was reportedly sent to his capital office, the New York Post reports. The substance turned out to be cornstarch, but Vanessa Trump still checked into a hospital as a precaution after coughing and feeling nauseous.

Edward Smith, of DC fire service, said the suspect letter contained baby powder and was sent to WWF from Hong Kong, China.
