The widow of Sgt. La David Johnson was one of the four Green Berets killed by ISIS in Niger this month. For the first time since her phone call with President Trump that Frederica Wilson listened in on.
The President has been in a chilling fight with Congressman Frederica Wilson about the call in which Wilson said that Trump told Myeshia Johnson that her husband “knew what he signed up for.”
Wilson is a family friend of the Johnsons and was in the limo with during the call when the widow was on her way to the airport to pick up her husband’s body. Trump called the master sergeant on his cell phone and pulled over to the tarmac at Dover Air Force Base to pick up Sgt. Johnson.
Johnson put the President on speaker phone so everyone could hear. According to her, “He knew what he signed up for, but it hurts anyway.”
“I heard him stumbling on trying to remember my husband’s name and that’s what hurt me most. Because if my husband is out here fighting for our country and he risks his life for our country, why can’t you remember his name? And that’s what made me upset and cry more,” she added.
President Trump shot back this morning on twitter, via Daily Mail.
I had a very respectful conversation with the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson, and spoke his name from beginning, without hesitation!

This widow is making her husband’s death political and it is really sad. It is sad that her husband died and it is sad that he cannot rest in peace. His memory is now going to get drug through the mud so that the Democratic party can try and take down our sitting President.
Share this if you feel sorry for her loss but are tired of the Democrats and people politicising the deaths of our soldiers.
God bless America. God bless Trump and God bless every single one of our troops.
