Fallen soldier's widow: 'Nothing to say' to Trump

U.S. Army Sgt. La David Terrence Johnson 25 was among four U.S. Green Berets killed in Niger on Oct. 4

La David Johnson spoke out on "Good Morning America" Monday about the death of her husband and the controversial phone call she received from President Trump. "She was crying the whole time, and when she hung up the phone, she looked at me and said, 'He didn't even remember his name.' That's the hurting part", Wilson said during an interview with MSNBC.

Trump had responded to Sgt. Johnson's pregnant, grieving widow on Twitter after she said that the president appeared to forget her husband's name when he called to offer his condolences.

Sgt. La David Johnson and three comrades died October 4 in Africa when militants tied to the Islamic State attacked them.

Trump shot back that Wilson had "totally fabricated" the account, but the soldier's widow and aunt confirmed it as true. She also claimed Trump didn't remember her husband's name.

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. La David Johnson, discussed her disappointment with the call on "Good Morning America" Monday morning, saying the President stumbled on her husband's name and suggesting the only reason he knew it was because the report was right in front of him. "What she said was 100 percent correct".

He said: 'It stuns me that a member of congress would have listened in on that conversation. She revealed she was not allowed to see the body of her husband, who was killed with three other USA soldiers by terrorists in Nigeron October 4.

Johnson's death has become the focus of a feud between Trump and US Rep. Frederica Wilson, a Florida Democrat.

"They won't show me a finger, a hand".

She added: 'I want the world to know how great of a soldier my husband was, and a loving and caring father and husband he was to our family'.

'And to be extremely candid, as a black man, I am always looking for role models who look like me, and the latest one I found was your husband. It could be empty for all I know.

Trump continued the quarrel Saturday morning on Twitter, calling Wilson "wacky". When his photos come on the TV screen or I see them in the newspapers I am incredibly proud of him and what he accomplished.
