April Ryan Confronts Sarah Sanders For Not Calling on Her in Briefing: ‘I’ll Keep Asking the Question’

During today’s heated White House press briefing with Sarah Sanders, American Urban Radio Networks White House correspondent April Ryan called out a question regarding President Trump‘s concerns about the integrity of the election system.

After making a comment on that point, Sanders went to call on another reporter, but Ryan called out, “Is voter suppression included with that, please? I’m just asking you a question because you choose not to call on me. Is voter suppression part of that election process that the president is trying to look for?”

“John, go ahead,” Sanders said, not answering the question.

“Oh, you’re not going to answer that,” Ryan said.

Minutes later Ryan asked her question again and Sanders did respond.

Ryan again said, “You did not mention voter suppression in that. Voter suppression has been an issue for decades… Is voter suppression now on the table?”

“We want to do everything within our power to protect the integrity of our elections,” Sanders said, “and we’re going to look at that on a number of fronts.”
