Myeshia Johnson Breaks Her Silence, Says Trump Couldn't Remember Husband's Name

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 on Monday said he had a "very respectful" phone conversation with the widow of a recently fallen USA soldier after the soldier's widow said he failed to remember her husband's name in the condolence call.

Johnson said she was distraught over Trump's alleged oversights during the call, which came as the Johnson family and Rep. Frederica Wilson, D-Florida, who is a friend of the family, rode in a limo to receive Johnson's body from Dover Air Force Base. "It made me cry because I was angry at the tone in his voice and how he said it". Wilson is a close family friend and was riding in the auto to receive Johnson's remains when Trump called. "What she said was 100 percent correct". Wilson admits she didn't hear their whole conversation, but insists she heard Trump say, insensitively, that Johnson's husband "knew what he signed up for". But White House Chief of Staff John F. Kelly later appeared to confirm Wilson's account.

Wilson and Trump have traded barbs for almost a week on the controversy stemming from the President's condolence call to Johnson. He's out there fighting for our country, why can't you remember his name?.

Mrs Johnson added: "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".

In a Monday interview with ABC's George Stephanopolous, Myeshia Johnson confirmed the account of Rep. But I need, I need to see my husband. "I don't know that part, they never told me, and that's what I've been trying to find out since day one, since October 4th". And they won't let me see anything. "I don't know what's in that box", she said.

Many who perceived the dogs as risky argue that they shouldn't be allowed as pets - and in many cities, they're not. Owners also have to keep the dogs muzzled or secured in a temporary enclosure, according to the Lowell Sun .

"They told me that he's in a severe, a severe wrap like I won't be able to see him", Myeshia Johnson told "Good Morning America". "I don't know anything". "I don't know how he got killed, where he got killed or anything".

Johnson said she has received little information from the military about how her husband died.

During the initial phone call with the president, Johnson said she didn't respond to Trump, and when Stephanopoulos asked if she had a message for him now she replied: "No".

He was also a father who was looking forward to seeing his baby girl: Myeshia is six months pregnant.

Trump once again proves how unguarded in speech he is for the president of the United States but this is not one of the reasons why this billionaire is running an ad campaign for his impeachment.
