Veteran White House reporter April Ryan thought she had seen everything in her two decades as a White House correspondent. And then came the Trump administration. Under Fire pulls back the veil to show readers the confusion and chaos during the first two years of the Trump White House. With the world on edge and a country grappling with a new controversy almost daily, Ryan gives readers a glimpse into current events from the perspective of an African American reporter who has herself become a target for a White House determined to avoid tough questions and to characterize the news media as the "enemy of the people." In the updated paperback edition Ryan brings the story of the Trump presidency up to date and looks ahead to the pivotal 2020 presidential election. After reading her book, readers will have an unprecedented inside view of the Trump White House and what it is like to be a reporter Under Fire.
