I'm not sure we can know the answer because I don't think the Secret Service would publicly comment on it. Although I guess one side of it could be disproved if a President (a trustworthy one, I mean) reported being told of a specific threat.

I do know that Secret Service protection is sometimes extended to more that the normally protected people at the President's discretion. I would think that might sometimes be sought based on specific threats. So, at least as to other people, I would think that Presidents are sometimes briefed on specific threats, but I don't know for sure.
