Details on Threat Against Trump’s Son
The handwritten letter was postmarked March 5 from Boston and referenced Donald Trump’s presidential bid.
The letter said: “If your father does not drop out of the race, the next envelope won’t be a fake.” It was signed “X,” according to one of the law enforcement officials, who had seen the letter.
In a statement, the New York Police Department confirmed that it had responded to a Trump building overlooking Central Park to investigate a suspicious letter received by a tenant but didn’t name the recipient.
Eric Trump, 32, is one of five children of businessman and Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump. He has been actively campaigning for his father.
Donald Trump’s representatives did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
