Fallen soldier's widow: 'Nothing to say' to Trump after condolence call


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. Johnson says a purported Facebook post that circulated with her name slamming a Democratic congresswoman is fake, according to a news report.

Frederica Wilson and Trump have traded barbs for almost a week on the controversy stemming from the President's condolence call to Myeshia Johnson, the widow of Sgt.

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

The wife of U.S. Army Sgt.

Trump accused Wilson of fabricating the story, but we all know who the liar was. "Because if my husband is out here fighting for our country, and he risked his life for our country, why can't you remember his name?"

Staff Sgt. Bryan C. Black, 35, of Puyallup, Washington; Staff Sgt. Jeremiah W. Johnson, 39, of Springboro, Ohio; and Staff Sgt. Dustin M. Wright, 29, of Lyons, Georgia, were killed along with Johnson in Niger.

In the days that followed, both Trump and Kelly publicly attacked the congresswoman, with Trump tweeting that Wilson's recounting of the call was "a total lie" and Kelly incorrectly accusing Wilson of bragging about her role in securing funding for the Federal Bureau of Investigation office that was dedicated in 2015.




The president's tweet comes after Myeshia Johnson during an interview on ABC's "Good Morning America" confirmed Rep. "What she said was 100 percent correct", Johnson said.

'I had a very respectful conversation with the widow of Sgt. Sgt. Johnson and three comrades died October 4 in Africa when militants tied to the Islamic State attacked them.

News about the phone call came to light after Rep. Frederica Wilson, who was sitting beside Mrs Johnson during the call, overheard the comments. I know my husband's body from head to toe.

She says she's gotten no answers from the government about how or where her husband died and says they refused to let her view his body. "I don't know anything".

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. Trump tweeted that Wilson "fabricated" his statement and the fight escalated through the week. Trump said on Twitter.

"The questions that I have that I need answered is I want to know why it took them 48 hours to find my husband", she told Stephanopoulos.
