Trump disputes military widow's account of condolence call

Trump disputes military widow's account of condolence call

"I don't know that they needed support until that time", Dunford said.

Johnson, a mother of two who is expecting her third child, is the widow of U.S. Army Sgt.

Rep. Wilson, a Florida congresswoman, says she was in the auto with Myeshia Johnson on the way to Miami International Airport to meet the body of Johnson's husband when Trump called. Johnson's family, who were dressed in white, openly wept over the death of the 25-year-old Army sergeant.

The president had previously tweeted in defense: 'Democrat Congresswoman totally fabricated what I said to the wife of a soldier who died in action (and I have proof). "He couldn't remember my husband's name", she said. Asked why he had not spoken up earlier about the Niger ambush, in which Johnson and three other Special Forces troops lost their lives, his instinct was to attack presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama for not contacting as many families of the dead-a lie that he papered over by turning his chief of staff's own dead son into a political prop.

The CNN anchor was fighting back tears as he made an emotional plea to the president to "please stop" the abuse towards Myeshia Johnson and demanded that he apologize to her for his tweet which 'essentially called her a liar'.

The row between Wilson and Trump began October 17 when the Miami-area Democrat said Trump told Myeshia Johnson in a phone call that her husband "knew what he signed up for" and didn't appear to know his name, a version later backed up by Johnson's aunt. "What she said was 100 percent correct", Johnson said.

He said: 'It stuns me that a member of congress would have listened in on that conversation.

Myeshia Johnson told "Good Morning America".

Johnson's GMA appearance comes during a swirling political debate over the circumstances of the death of her husband and three other United States soldiers in Niger.

Trump's broadside came a day after the White House defended Chief of Staff John F. Kelly after he mischaracterized Wilson's remarks at a 2015 Federal Bureau of Investigation building dedication and called her an "empty barrel" making noise. She said she also wants to know why she hasn't been allowed to see her husband's body. I know my husband's body from head to toe. "I don't know anything".

Trump responded to the "GMA" interview shortly after it aired, writing on Twitter that he "had a very respectful conversation with the widow of Sgt".

"They won't tell me anything".
