Gold Star Widow: Trump Call 'Made Me Cry Even Worse'

Myeshia Johnson cries over the casket in Miami of her husband Sgt La David Johnson who was killed in an ambush in Niger

John McCain weighed in on the war of words over President Donald Trump's handling of a phone call to an Army widow as she was grieving over the loss of her husband Army Sergeant La David Johnson.

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.

The president's tweet comes after Myeshia Johnson during an interview on ABC's "Good Morning America" confirmed Rep. "No", she said. "I don't have nothing to say to him". You know, John Kelly is nearly - I guess you could say he was a puppet of the president and what he was trying to do was divert the attention away from the president on to me, and he basically just lied on me. "The only way he could remember my husband's name was he told me he had my husband's report in front of him and that's when he actually said La David". "I had a very nice conversation with the woman, with the wife who. sounded like a lovely woman". "And that's what hurt me the most, because if my husband is out here fighting for our country and he risked his life for our country", she said.

That Trump said the widow's husband, Sgt.

The Democrat was referring to remarks Kelly made about Wilson while speaking to reporters Thursday, during which he called her an "empty barrel".

The phone call between the president and Johnson has been a source of controversy for a week now, since Rep. Frederica Wilson, D-Fla., who listened in on the call, revealed details of the conversation.

Myeshia Johnson lost her husband Sgt. All speakers - including Wilson - concentrated rather on Johnson's sacrifice.

Last week, Trump's chief of staff said he was "stunned" and "broken-hearted" by the criticism of the president's phone call.

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

Johnson was asked if she had anything to say to the president.

She said it took them 48 hours to find her husband and she still hasn't been allowed to see the body. I'm getting sick and exhausted of this so-called politician using my husband as a political platform. "I don't have nothing to say to him". It escalated as she continued to attack the administration and Trump fired off insulting tweets, calling her "wacky" and accusing her of "SECRETLY" listening to the phone call.
