La David Johnson, who was killed earlier this month in Niger, has broken her silence after US President Donald Trump's condolence call to her sparked controversy. You know, John Kelly is nearly - I guess you could say he was a puppet of the president and what he was trying to do was divert the attention away from the president on to me, and he basically just lied on me.

The four USA soldiers were killed October 4 in Niger when they were attacked by militants tied to the Islamic State.

And when he did on Tuesday, Rep. Frederica Wilson said tht the president was disrespectful during a phone call he made to Johnson's widow; Wilson was on the phone when Trump called and said that Sgt. Johnson "knew what he signed up for, but I guess it still hurt". "She was crying the whole time, and when she hung up the phone, she looked at me and said, 'He didn't even remember his name.' That's the hurting part", Wilson said during an interview with MSNBC.

She said that's when Trump told her, "he knew what he signed up for but it hurts anyways".

'I don't know what's in that box - it could be empty for all I know, ' Myeshia continued. "What she said was 100 percent correct", Johnson said.

The president has denied the accusation, at one point tweeting: "Democrat Congresswoman totally fabricated what I said to the wife of a soldier who died in action (and I have proof)".

Johnson, who is expecting a daughter this January, said she's still waiting for answers regarding the circumstances of her husband's death. "They told me there was a massive gunfire and that my husband, as of October 4 was missing", she said.

Trump and the White House have gone after Rep. Wilson's character for several days. "I had a very respectful conversation with the widow of Sgt".

"I need to see him so I will know that that is my husband".

Wilson was riding with the family of Johnson to meet the body and said she heard the call from the president on speakerphone. He went on to say that previous presidents didn't always call the families of fallen service members, and invoked the death of his chief of staff's son in commenting on the practices of President Obama following military casualties.

Kelly, a retired Marine general, also said Wilson took credit at an FBI building dedication for securing federal funding for its construction. "Why would we fabricate something like that?" "I don't know anything". "I don't have nothing to say to him".
