Yesterday Rep. Frederica Wilson exposed the real nature of President by revealing what exactly she overheard from the conversation between Trump and Myeshia Johnson. They were in a car headed to Miami International Airport on Tuesday afternoon to meet the body of Johnson’s husband, Army Sgt. La David T. Johnson, who died in Niger this month,
She also confirmed this information with the CNN, “Basically, he said, ‘Well, I guess he knew what he signed up for. But I guess it still hurt.’ That’s what he said.”
Wilson said she heard part of the conversation on speakerphone. President Trump denied Wilson’s claim and said he had a “very nice conversation” with Johnson, “who sounded like a lovely woman.”
Trump told reporters today “I didn’t say what that congresswoman said, and she knows it,” .”I didn’t say it at all.”
Trump did not forget to personally attack her on twitter , “Democrat Congresswoman totally fabricated what I said to the wife of a soldier who died in action (and I have proof).”
When asked about his claim of “proof” Trump bluffed and said , “Let her make her statement again and then you’ll find out.” Wilson responded earlier today to Trump’s tweet, calling him a “sick man” and saying she has her own proof.
She said in an interview with CNN “I’m not trying to prove anything with the president,” “So the president evidently is lying. “Because what I said is true. I have no reason to lie on the president of the United States, with a dead soldier in my community. I have no time. I have no motive.”
Wilson responded to ABC Miami about the controversy, “Yeah, he said that. To me, that is something that you can say in a conversation, but you shouldn’t say that to a grieving widow. And everyone knows when you go to war, you could possibly not come back alive. But you don’t remind a grieving widow of that. That’s so insensitive.”
Brave soldier La David Johnson, three other American soldiers and five Nigerien troops died in Niger on Oct. 4, when their joint patrol was ambushed by militants believed to be linked to ISIS. His widow, who is pregnant, broke down in tears hugging his casket Tuesday as it was unloaded from the airplane.
Wilson further told ABC, “Now, I didn’t hear the entire conversation, but when I tried to find out what the entire conversation was, she said, ‘I just can’t remember everything that he said.’ But that stood out in everyone’s, uh, heart on the call. You don’t say that. He is the president of the United States.”
She added by saying “This is a soldier who gave his life for his country. He is a hero in our minds, in our community’s minds. That is an insult to the entire Miami Gardens community, to our entire District 24, to Miami-Dade County and to this nation. And I hope he did not say that to the other three families that he called,”
Later The White House has declined to comment on the remarks that are being attributed to him. White House just told ABC News “The president’s conversations with the families of American heroes who have made the ultimate sacrifice are private,”
In her interview with CNN, the congress woman elaborated on her reaction, saying she wanted to confront the president. “I asked them to give me the phone because I wanted to speak with him,” she said. “And I was going to curse him out. That was my reaction at that time. I was livid. But they would not give me the phone.”
Wilson also told MSNBC, “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.’” Wilson said she was not politicizing anything by sharing what she heard of the phone call.
She added by saying “He died as a sergeant. He died as a hero’. She added, “And Mr. Trump was extremely insensitive to that family, and I will stick by that. I’m not trying to politicize it, but I think it was a disgrace.” La David Johnson enlisted in the Army in January 2014 as a wheeled-vehicle mechanic and was assigned to the 3rd Special Forces Group, a Green Beret unit based in Fort Bragg, North Carolina, as part of its support team. Military says his body was found Friday after an extensive search; his body was initially listed as missing.
