La David Johnson, one of four US soldiers killed in Niger, took place on Saturday, his tragic death politicized by the president, who continues to feud with a Congresswoman who was close to the family. "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.' That's the hurting part", Wilson said during an interview with MSNBC.

The pregnant war widow of a soldier gunned down in Niger has broken her silence to speak about the phone call Donald Trump made to her in the aftermath of his death.

Rep. Wilson, a Florida congresswoman, says she was in the vehicle with Myeshia Johnson on the way to Miami International Airport to meet the body of Johnson's husband when Trump called. La David Johnson, who was killed in action in Niger.

The 51-year-old journalist, who had also mentioned at the beginning of his open letter that he'd also suffered very public criticism from Trump on camera and on Twitter, urged the president to imagine what it was like if Tiffany or Ivanka were in Mrs Johnson's shoes.

La David Johnson was among four servicemen killed in the African nation of Niger earlier this month.

Wilson and Trump have traded barbs for almost a week on the controversy stemming from the President's condolence call to Johnson.




"Very upset and hurt; it made me cry even worse", she said, adding that she has nothing to say to the president. "I was very angry at the tone of his voice and how he said it".

Myeshia Johnson told "Good Morning America" Wilson's account of the call was "100% correct". Wilson was riding with Johnson's family to meet the body and heard the call on speakerphone.

Johnson and three other soldiers, as well as five Nigerian soldiers, died October 4 in Niger when they were attacked by militants tied to the Islamic State. I'm getting sick and exhausted of this so-called politician using my husband as a political platform.

"They won't show me a finger, a hand".

"Whatever Miss Wilson said was not fabricated". She stated she has nothing to say to Trump now.

When Stephanopoulos asked if she believed she would get the answers to questions surrounding her husband's death, Johnson said: "If I keep pushing for them, I will". When his photos come on the TV screen or I see them in the newspapers I am incredibly proud of him and what he accomplished.
