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

What Does 'Empty Barrel&apos Mean and Where Does It Come From

Johnson, who was laid to rest Saturday, was one of four US soldiers killed during an ambush in Niger on October 4.

Mr Trump has rejected the claims, tweeting that the pair had "a very respectful conversation" and he used Sgt Johnson's name "from beginning, without hesitation!"

President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Monday morning to refute the widow of fallen American soldier Sgt.

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. "He couldn't remember my husband's name", she said.

Trump also called Wilson's claim Kelly made the remarks about her to keep his job "sickening". According to CNN, President Trump caused pain when Wilson said she overheard Trump telling Myeshia via a speakerphone that La David "knew what he signed up for" when he joined the military. In return, Wilson told the New York Times that the White House "is full of white supremacists".

The White House said Mr Trump's conversations with the families of dead servicemen were private. Wilson and Trump have been locked in a war of words about a phone call the president made to Myeshia Johnson. "But I guess it still hurt".

Air, Water Pollution Kills Millions across the Globe
The rate of deaths attributable to pollution was 196 per 100,000 people in India, compared to 131 in China and 47 in the US. Its dangers lie in respiratory and heart diseases including lung cancer, which can develop from long-term exposure.

She said she didn't like Trump's tone and that she broke down when Trump fumbled her husband's name. "What she said was 100 percent correct", the widow said.

Johnson's other sister, Angie Ghent, said after the funeral service, that his reputation for being the "Wheelie King" is what she will hold on to.

McCain has been pressing the Trump administration for more details of what happened during that fateful military ambush in Niger. The Pentagon is still looking at the exact circumstances of how and when Johnson became separated from the 12-member team as they were ambushed by 50 ISIS fighters.

USA officials were still investigating how the sergeant, whose body was found more than a mile away from the ambush, was separated from (or left by) his team. "She is a highly respected Member of Congress who has demonstrated extremely competent leadership on a number of important issues, and we are especially proud of her fearless and uncompromising leadership to fight for the release of almost 300 Nigerian school girls who were kidnapped by the terrorist group Boko Haram".

"I need to see him so I will know that that is my husband". "Why couldn't I see my husband?"
