Donald Trump Jr. says a "demented leftist" sent him a letter containing a death threat and white powder, which sparked a hazmat response to his Florida home. 

"This is now the second time a demented leftist has mailed me a death threat with white powder," he told MxM News.

The last time Donald Trump Jr. received an envelope with a white powder was when his father was president, the former president's eldest son said. 

"If this happened twice to a prominent Democrat, there would be hearings in Congress, but since my last name is Trump, the media will move on in a day," Donald Trump Jr. said. "The hatred the left has for my family knows no bounds." 

The letter Donald Trump Jr. received on Monday included the names of all of Trump's children and, for the married ones, their spouses, with the exception of Tiffany Trump and her husband Michael Boulos, who were left off the letter, according to photos of the threat published by The Daily Caller

"Again, how many lives will be ruined before the psychopath Donald is silenced? Lee Harvey Oswald's grandson must complete his contract," the letter states. The letter also says that "it's time" for news that "Donald and his family have gone up in smoke when the 'Trump' plane dives into the Atlantic Ocean." 

Authorities do not believe the white powder sent to the former first son on Monday was deadly, according to an Associated Press report. Officials have not publicly identified a suspect behind the incident.

Concerns regarding white powder date to 2001 when letters with deadly anthrax killed five people after being sent to news organizations and members of Congress.
