Fallen soldier's widow: 'Nothing to say' to Trump

Niger attack: Final farewell Saturday for Sgt. La David Johnson

"La David Johnson, and spoke his name from beginning, without hesitation!" he tweeted on Monday, less than an hour after Johnson had appeared on Good Morning America to tell her story. It was Myeshia Johnson's first interview after a Democratic congresswoman accused Trump of being callous in the call by telling the widow that her husband "knew what he signed up for".

Sgt Johnson and three comrades died in October 4 following an attack in the west African nation. Johnson confirmed Wilson's account on Monday, saying the congresswoman was a longtime friend who was with the family in the vehicle when Trump called and listened on speakerphone. He couldn't remember my husband's name. "I had a very nice conversation with the woman, with the wife who. sounded like a lovely woman".

"It's clear that Congresswoman Wilson was absolutely correct in everything she described last week, and the president repeatedly lied and dissembled and was inaccurate about what happened", Bacon said.

Trump on Monday disputed Johnson's account, characterizing his conversation with her as "very respectful".

Shortly after Wilson's initial comments, a Facebook post attributed to the newly widowed Myeshia Johnson began to circulate.

"I need to see him so I will know that that is my husband", she said. Wilson was also in the auto.

"That's what made me upset and cry even more, because my husband was an awesome soldier", she added. And it made me cry. The president even called Rep. Wilson "wacky" on Twitter the morning after Sgt. Johnson's funeral. "Every time I asked to see my husband, they wouldn't let me", she said. It could be empty for all I know.

In a phone call with the widow of Sgt.

Johnson said Trump's remarks during the call were not the most upsetting part for her.

He was also a father who was looking forward to seeing his baby girl: Myeshia is six months pregnant.

Trump once again proves how unguarded in speech he is for the president of the United States but this is not one of the reasons why this billionaire is running an ad campaign for his impeachment.
