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. La David Johnson, discussed her disappointment with the call on "Good Morning America" Monday morning, saying the President stumbled on her husband's name and suggesting the only reason he knew it was because the report was right in front of him.

Kelly "basically just lied on me" to divert attention away from Trump, Wilson said Sunday.

Johnson, 25, was one of four U.S. Special Forces - or Green Berets - killed in Niger when they were attacked October 4 by militants tied to the Islamic State.

Johnson's pregnant widow, Myeshia Johnson, told ABC News that she did not write the post blasting Rep. Frederica Wilson, D-Fla., and defending President Trump.

"I didn't say anything".

Trump's broadside came a day after the White House defended Chief of Staff John F. Kelly after he mischaracterized Wilson's remarks at a 2015 Federal Bureau of Investigation building dedication and called her an "empty barrel" making noise. "That's my brother and I love my brother and I know he love my sisters". "What she said was 100 percent correct", the widow said.

Johnson, who is expecting a daughter this January, said she's still waiting for answers regarding the circumstances of her husband's death.

She said it took them 48 hours to find her husband and she still hasn't been allowed to see the body. In return, Wilson told the New York Times that the White House "is full of white supremacists". "I was very angry at the tone of his voice and how he said it". But Johnson backed up Rep. Wilson's version of events.

Johnson said Monday that Wilson's account was accurate.

He has dismissed the account of the phone call given by Ms Wilson as "totally fabricated". "I don't know what's in that box", she said. "I don't have nothing to say to him". "I don't know anything". "A video of Congresswoman Wilson's comments on that day has been released, and it provides indisputable proof that she never made any of the statements of which General Kelly falsely accused her".

She added: "Everyone knows when you go to war, you could possibly not come back alive". Not only does he owe me an apology but he owes an apology to the American people, because when he lied on me he lied to them, and I don't think that's fair, and I think that's wrong.
