Sgt. La David Johnson's Widow: Trump's Phone Call 'Made Me Cry'

Kelly made false claim in dispute over call

U.S. Army Sgt. La David Terrence Johnson 25 was among four U.S. Green Berets killed in Niger on Oct. 4

President Donald Trump on Monday said he had a "very respectful" phone conversation with the widow of a recently fallen USA soldier after the soldier's widow said he failed to remember her husband's name in the condolence call.

The widow of a fallen soldier criticized President Donald Trump Monday over his condolence call last week, saying she was angered by his tone and that he couldn't remember her husband's name.

Wilson, who is close to Johnson's family and was in the vehicle when Trump's call came, claimed that Trump said Johnson "knew what he signed up for, but I guess it still hurts".

"The only way he remembered my husband's name, because he told me he had my husband's report in front of him".

'I heard him stumbling on trying to remember my husband's name and that's what's hurting me the most because if my husband's out here fighting for our country and he risked his life for our country, then why can't you remember his name?

"Whatever Mrs. Wilson said was not fabricated".

In an interview on "Good Morning America" Monday, Myeshia Johnson claimed "what (Florida Democrat Rep. Frederica Wilson Wilson) said was 100 percent correct". Myeshia can be seen in the above photo, as the pregnant widow sobbed on her husband's coffin after his body arrived in Miami.

There are now no plans for the administration to reach out to Sgt. Johnson's family again, a White House official said.

Trump aides have stood by Mr Kelly's contention that Ms Wilson had boasted about her role in winning funding for a federal building, even after video of her remarks emerged, showing he was wrong.

The row had escalated when Mr Trump suggested that former President Barack Obama had not called the family of his chief of staff, General John Kelly, when their son was killed in Afghanistan.

Wilson was riding with the family of Johnson to meet the body and said she heard the call from the president on speakerphone.

Critics said the episode reflects Mr Trump's continued efforts to avoid scrutiny of his conduct in office by casting blame elsewhere.

She added, "I think that he has to admit what he did was incorrect in terms of the speech he mischaracterized. I don't have nothing to say to him". I'm getting sick and exhausted of this so-called politician using my husband as a political platform. She was principal of a school Johnson's father attended.

ABC News reported Sunday that Myeshia Johnson did not write the post, which resembled a post from a Facebook timeline. "That's my brother and I love my brother and I know he love my sisters". "It could be empty for all I know".
