Myeshia Johnson's late husband Sgt.
The widow of one of four soldiers killed in Niger went on television Monday to criticize President Donald Trump for how he spoke to her during a condolence call last week, saying the president blundered through the conversation and only deepened her grief because he did not seem to know her husband's name. 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 auto when the call came and publicly that Trump told Johnson her husband "knew what he signed up for".
"It made me cry because I was very angry at the tone of his voice", Myeshia said about the phone call. Then, a congresswoman who is a friend of the Johnson family and heard Trump's call to the widow said that call was insensitive.
The president "said that 'he knew what he signed up for, but it hurts anyways, '" Johnson recounted. "I don't - no, I don't have nothing to say to him".
Johnson said she was very upset and hurt when she got off of the phone, and that Trump's call made her cry even worse. White House chief of staff John Kelly told a story to show Wilson as a self-aggrandizing attention-seeker which was later shown to be inaccurate on key facts; White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders described her as "all hat and no cattle" during a press briefing (Wilson is known for the colorful cowboy hats she wears); and President Trump over the weekend described her as "wacky" as he sent a series of tweets. The Pentagon is still looking at the exact circumstances of how and when Johnson became separated from the 12-member team as they were ambushed by 50 ISIS fighters. "The only way he remembered my husband's name because he told me he had my husband report in front of him and that's when he actually said La David".
"Whatever Ms. Wilson said was not fabricated", Johnson said in her first interview since her husband's death.
"I want to know why it took them 48 hours to find my husband", Johnson said.
"I know my husband's body from head to toe. Every time I asked to see my husband, they wouldn't let me". She also said he was "a loving and caring father and husband". I don't know what's in that box, it could be empty for all I know.
He had two children with wife Myeshia - a two-year-old son and six-year-old daughter - and the couple were expecting the birth of another girl in January.
Johnson was asked if she had anything to say to the president.
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.
