La David Johnson, one of four US soldiers killed in Niger, took place on Saturday, his tragic death politicized by the president, who continues to feud with a Congresswoman who was close to the family. Johnson says a purported Facebook post that circulated with her name slamming a Democratic congresswoman is fake, according to a news report.

Shortly after the interview, President Trump weighed in, tweeting: "I had a very respectful conversation with the widow of Sgt".

Wilson said Trump had been disrespectful during a phone call he made to Johnson's widow, telling her that her late husband "knew what he signed up for, but I guess it still hurt". Wilson has been a friend of the Johnson family for years and Sgt. Johnson was in her 5000 Role Models program that pairs African-American boys with mentors who prepare them for college, vocational school or the military.

Trump last week lashed out at Rep. Wilson, disputing her account of what he said in the phone call.

Johnson, who is expecting a daughter this January, said she's still waiting for answers regarding the circumstances of her husband's death. 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. La David Johnson, said Monday on ABC's "Good Morning America" that Trump stumbled on her husband's name during the phone call which made her "very angry". "What she said was 100 percent correct". "I had a very respectful conversation with the widow of Sgt".

Johnson, of Miami Gardens, Florida, corroborated the story of Rep. Frederica Wilson, D-Fla.

Johnson, 25, was one of four U.S. Special Forces - or Green Berets - killed in Niger when they were attacked October 4 by militants tied to the Islamic State. I know my husband's body from head to toe. She said she also wants to know why she hasn't been allowed to see her husband's body.

"Whatever Miss Wilson said was not fabricated". Trump wrote on Twitter, referencing one of the Green Berets killed earlier this month in an ambush in Niger. "A couple of days later is when they told me he went from missing to killed in action".
