Sgt. La David Johnson's Widow: Trump's Phone Call 'Made Me Cry'

The president has for a week now disputed details of his phone call with the widow, Myeshia Johnson, that were first offered by Rep. Frederica S. Wilson (D-Fla.); on Monday morning, Johnson confirmed that version of events, and in turn drew Trump's tweeted retort.
Myeshia Johnson, widow of Sgt La David Johnson, told ABC that the US President made her cry as "he couldn't remember my husband's name" until he looked at a report in front of him.
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. "I need to see him so I will know that that is my husband", she said. "He couldn't remember my husband's name", she said.
Mr Trump's call of condolence made headlines when Democratic congresswoman Frederica Wilson - who had heard it along with the family - accused him of insensitivity. "I was very angry at the tone of his voice and how he said it".
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.
She said it took them 48 hours to find her husband and she still hasn't been allowed to see the body.
Wilson's account of the phone call was "100 percent correct", Johnson told George Stephanopoulos Monday on Good Morning America.

What's perhaps most remarkable about the president's continued objections, though, is that his own White House isn't doing the same. "A video of Congresswoman Wilson's comments on that day has been released, and it provides indisputable proof that she never made any of the statements of which General Kelly falsely accused her".
White House Chief of Staff John Kelly defended Trump, indicating that making such a phone call was hard under any circumstances.
His godsister, Lakia Smith, said Johnson would always come watch her at cheerleading practice. I'm getting sick and exhausted of this so-called politician using my husband as a political platform. She also said he was "a loving and caring father and husband". "Why would we fabricate something like that?"
Sgt Johnson's mother, Cowanda Jones-Johnson, told the Washington Post that Mr Trump "did disrespect my son". "I don't know anything".
