The substance inside was reportedly baby power, according to D.C. Fire and EMS Battalion Chief Edward Smith.

There were no injuries reported. It’s unclear if Obama was in his office when the letter arrived.

On Monday, President Trump’s daughter in law, Vanessa Trump, was hospitalized after she opened a piece of mail addressed to her husband, Donald Trump Jr., that contained a white powder.

The envelope contained a note reading, “You’re an awful person and now you get what you deserve.”
