Slain soldier's widow explains why Trump's call made her angry and sad

Slain soldier's widow explains why Trump's call made her angry and sad

"All Presidents, I believe, have elected to send letters to families of fallen soldiers", Kelly said.

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.

'Think of what Sgt. Johnson would want, ' he told Trump in his piece to camera.

Myeshia Johnson wipes away tears during the burial service for her husband U.S. Army Sgt.

"Whatever Ms. Wilson said was not fabricated, what she said was 100 percent correct", said Johnson.

Myeshia Johnson told George Stephanopoulos that she was "very angry" about the call and that Trump struggled to remember her husband's name.

Former Canadian hostage Joshua Boyle demands justice from Afghan government
A USA military official said that a military hostage team had flown to Pakistan Wednesday prepared to fly the family out. Boyle gave The Associated Press a handwritten statement expressing disagreement with USA foreign policy.

Staff Sgt. Bryan C. Black, 35, of Puyallup, Washington; Staff Sgt. Jeremiah W. Johnson, 39, of Springboro, Ohio; and Staff Sgt. Dustin M. Wright, 29, of Lyons, Georgia, were killed along with Johnson in Niger. The family member who raised Johnson called Wilson's account of the call "very accurate", and the White House has not refuted that Trump spoke those words. Myeshia Johnson appeared on "Good Morning America" on Monday and said, when he called her last week, "I heard him stumbling on trying to remember my husband's name, and that's what hurt me the most, because if my husband is out there fighting for our country and risked his life for our country, why can't you remember his name?" "I had a very respectful conversation with the widow of Sgt".

Myeshia Johnson told "Good Morning America". She revealed she was not allowed to see the body of her husband, who was killed with three other US soldiers by terrorists in Nigeron October 4. His death became the center of a dispute between President Donald Trump and U.S. Rep. Frederica Wilson, D-Fla.

She says she's gotten no answers from the government about how or where her husband died and says they refused to let her view his body.

'I don't know what's in that box - it could be empty for all I know, ' Myeshia continued.

The mom of three still has questions about her husband's death. And they won't let me see anything.

"Whatever Mrs. Wilson said was not fabricated. A couple of days later is when they told me he went from missing to killed in action". "They told me there was a massive gunfire and that my husband, as of October 4 was missing", she said.
