*American Urban Radio Network’s White House correspondent April Ryan has made some important changes in her life. After a series of verbal attacks by President Donald Trump, she’s employed security to protect her from the crazies who might actually buy into Trump’s BS and see her as an “enemy of the people.”
Thursday Ryan was on “TMZ Live” and was asked if she was receiving death threats after Trump rudely told her to sit down when she tried asking a question about voter suppression. It’s the latest Trump attack against the American Urban Radio Networks Correspondent.

April didn’t want to talk about specific threats, but made it clear she has a security team in place, which seems to be a reality of life for White House Correspondents who raise the President’s ire.
Ryan made clear that he doesn’t live in fear and will not back down, but she’s not stupid and careless. She’s clearly taking precautions.
There’s MORE …
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, Ryan has received at least 2 serious threats. The first one came in September … someone emailed her and said:
“Your not black. Your a loser with a big mouth that need slapped. If I ever see you, you’re slap is coming. Go eat more s***.”
There was another one last month. She received a letter from someone who claimed to be an ex-Army Ranger.
“I know who you are; what you look like; where you work; where you live, and what you drive … so I think I’ll pay you a visit soon. Trust me — it will be the worst day of your life!,” he told her.
Yeah April, you definitely need security. Hell, if you have to, “get the strap!”
