WASHINGTON (AP) -

Police say an envelope containing a white powdery substance that was mailed to Donald Trump's campaign office in New York City is harmless.

Emergency crews had been called to Trump Tower in Manhattan around 8 p.m. Thursday. Police say a staffer for the Republican presidential candidate opened the letter containing the powder and immediately called police.

Authorities said the powder was a "non-hazardous substance." Additional testing was needed before it could be officially identified.

Six people had been isolated and evaluated by medical crews at the scene. They included five Trump staffers and a police officer who responded to the call.

In March, an envelope containing a non-hazardous white power and a threatening letter was sent to the Manhattan apartment of Donald Trump's son, Eric.
