The New York Post’s Page Six reports CNN anchor Don Lemon is concerned with safety, following President Donald Trump’s rhetoric about him.
He said, “The one thing that makes me nervous in this environment is safety. I do not think that President Trump realizes that calling journalists the enemy of America impacts our safety . . . That is happening with me now. I have to take certain precautions and certain steps because of threats.”
Trump blasted Lemon in February, complaining about the “hatred and venom” coming out of his mouth.
“I am not scared, but I am not stupid. My mother calls me more often to see if I am OK . . . This is serious stuff, it is not funny at all. It is not on my mind 24/7, but it is in the back of my mind. I did not have to look over my shoulder before.”
