President Trump early Monday disputed the account of his phone call with a Gold star widow, who provided a description of the call earlier that morning in an interview. "I don't know anything", she said about how her husband died.

Trump had responded to Sgt. Johnson's pregnant, grieving widow on Twitter after she said that the president appeared to forget her husband's name when he called to offer his condolences.

Rep. Wilson, a Florida congresswoman, says she was in the auto with Myeshia Johnson on the way to Miami International Airport to meet the body of Johnson's husband when Trump called.

The widow of U.S. Army Sgt.


Trump tweeted last week that Wilson's account was "totally fabricated", although the fallen solider's mother said it was accurate. "He couldn't remember my husband's name", she said.

Portraits of his three comrades killed in action - 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 - joined his on the stage as the pastor, family and Wilson spoke.

She also confirmed Democratic lawmaker Frederica Wilson's description of the call "was 100 per cent correct".

The deal took place while Clinton was secretary of State, but her campaign and former State Department officials have said she was not involved in the approval process. "And it made me cry because I was very angry at the tone of his voice and how he said it".


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.

'I don't know what's in that box - it could be empty for all I know, ' Myeshia continued. She revealed she was not allowed to see the body of her husband, who was killed with three other USA soldiers by terrorists in Nigeron October 4.

Myeshia Johnson told "Good Morning America". 'La David, your hero husband, was an awesome soldier, a great man, and a great American. And they won't let me see anything. Trump said on Twitter. "They told me there was a massive gunfire and that my husband, as of October 4 was missing", she said.

"The questions that I have that I need answered is I want to know why it took them 48 hours to find my husband", she told Stephanopoulos.
