Trump Disputes Widow's Story, Continuing Feud Over Army Death

Trump Disputes Widow's Story, Continuing Feud Over Army Death”

Johnson said she was at Dover Air Force Base in DE, on the air strip ready to receive her husband's body, when the call came from Trump to the master sergeant accompanying her. Johnson asked that the call be put on speaker, so her family could hear. And I was, it made me cry because I was very angry at him the tone of his voice and how he said it. Soon after, his name became entangled in a controversy after Trump was accused of making insensitive remarks to the 25-year-old soldier's widow. Republicans nix idea of pairing repeal with tax reform Fla. lawmaker warned officials before retirement home tragedy Florida Dem: "Abomination" that seniors were left at nursing home where 8 died MORE (D-Fla.), who was in the vehicle when the call came and publicly that Trump told Johnson her husband "knew what he signed up for".

"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.

Johnson's GMA appearance comes during a swirling political debate over the circumstances of the death of her husband and three other USA soldiers in Niger. La David Johnson killed in an ambush in Niger, that her husband "knew what he signed up for". He was buried on Saturday. She added: "The only way he could remember my husband's name was he told me he had my husband's report in front of him and that's when he actually said La David".

"They told me that he's in a severe, a severe wrap like I won't be able to see him", Myeshia Johnson told "Good Morning America".

"I want to know why it took them 48 hours to find my husband". I am sick and exhausted of this so called politician using my husband as a political platform. I don't know what's in that box, it could be empty for all I know. But I need to see my husband. "La David Johnson, and spoke his name from beginning, without hesitation!"' Trump said Monday on Twitter. "The phone was on speaker phone. Why would we fabricate something like that?"

The president's seemingly private condolence call to widow Myeshia Johnson went public last week when a Democratic congresswoman claimed Trump was disrespectful. It is adversarial. Trump isn't disputing the words that he used.

She spoke fondly of Rep. Frederica Wilson, D-Fla., whom she and her husband have known since they were little kids.

Johnson said she will "tell her how awesome her dad was, what a great father he was and how he died as a hero".

"I know my husband's body from head to toe".

She said she learned her husband was missing in action when military members came to her house.
