Mother of slain soldier backs congresswoman after Trump says she ‘fabricated’ his comments to widow – AOL

President Donald Trump on Wednesday said he has proof that a Democratic congresswoman “fabricated” her account of a call he made Tuesday to the widow of a soldier killed in an ambush in Africa earlier this month.

But that deceased soldier’s mother said the congresswoman was correct in her characterization of what Trump said, telling The Washington Post that Trump disrespected her son and daughter-in-law.

Democratic Rep. Frederica Wilson of Florida told Miami ABC affiliate WPLG on Tuesday that Trump told Myeshia Johnson — the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson, one of the four troops killed during a mission in Niger earlier this month — that, “He knew what he signed up for … but when it happens, it hurts anyway.” (AOL)
