Published

CNN Reported that a parcel containing ricin poison that was intended for President Donald Trump of America was confiscated earlier this week.

Two tests were done to confirm the poison.

All items for the White House are sorted and sifted on another premises before reaching the White House.

The FBI and the Secret Service are investigating the incident, according to CNN.

Ricin is a very toxic compound used in terrorist attacks. It comes in powder form or as a pill, spray or in an acid.

If ingested, it causes nausea, vomiting and internal bleeding of the stomach and intestines, followed by the liver, spleen and kidneys failing. This eventually leads to death.
