April Ryan Says She’s Getting Protection After Trump Attack

‘I walk with my head held high’


RYAN: "Without going too far into it, you know, the President has said some things that people want to act on. And I have governed  myself accordingly. I'm protecting myself and my family, let's say that. But people want to scare, they want to scare you. But what  are they trying to scare me for? For what? No, I don't live in fear. I walk with my head held high, I've done nothing wrong and I'm going to continue to do that, to do what I've done. I know a lot of people on that list. And a lot of people, we were kind of talking to each other, just making sure each other — we're taking care of ourselves and each other. I'm thankful for the people, the team that is a symbol for me and that they understand the scenario. This is not a joke. I'm not going to give a name, but someone who was at the press conference yesterday who was a target of the venom from the podium, I discussed it with them an said, you know, protect yourself, and be aware of the climate, and watch yourself now. You are now a target. We talked quietly amongst each other but that's as far as I'm going to go because I do  not want to buy into fear. I grew up in Baltimore City, I've seen a lot. I can't be afraid and I'm not going to make my children afraid. I'm not going to make the people around me afraid, because people just want to scare you, to scare you from stop reporting, reporting on truth."
