'Upset and Hurt': Fallen Soldier's Widow on Trump's Condolence Call

Johnson 25 died from wounds sustained during enemy contact. He was assigned to 3rd Special Forces Group on Fort Bragg

The pregnant war widow of a soldier gunned down in Niger has broken her silence to speak about the phone call Donald Trump made to her in the aftermath of his death.

President Trump early Monday disputed the account of his phone call with a Gold star widow, who provided a description of the call earlier that morning in an interview.

Myeshia Johnson told ABC's Good Morning America on Monday she has nothing to say to the president. "I'm gonna remember that bike", she said.

That Trump didn't seem to recall Sgt. Johnson's name. "It made me cry because I was very angry at the tone of his voice and how he said it", she said.

She said he then had her husband's name on a report in front of him.

'I heard him stumbling on trying to remember my husband's name and that's what's hurting me the most because if my husband's out here fighting for our country and he risked his life for our country, then why can't you remember his name?

President Trump said Ms Wilson's claim was "totally fabricated" and in a series of attacks on Twitter described the congresswoman as "wacky".

The reporter pointed out that Kelly's statement Thursday was misleading: Wilson didn't discuss the building's funding in her speech in 2015.

The conflict continued Tuesday with Wilson criticizing the condolence call to Johnson.

I've been in politics a long time and most things don't bother me, you know, it just rolls off my back I've been lied on before, but the character assassination that he went through to call me out of my name, an empty barrel, and all of the work that I've done in this community. La David Johnson was in a mentoring program for black youth in Miami that Wilson started.

Wilson, seen attending Johnson's funeral, said Kelly lied to her and should apologize to the American people.

Trump's tweet will do little to shut down a controversy that has swirled around the president since last week. "Why would we fabricate something like that?"

QUESTION: What do you say about her comment that he did not know - and the wife, the widow, said that the president did not know his name; he kept saying "your guy", "your guy"?

Myeshia Johnson lost her husband Sgt. I'm getting sick and exhausted of this so-called politician using my husband as a political platform. She stated she has nothing to say to Trump now. "That's my brother and I love my brother and I know he love my sisters".

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