Why Trump Just Accused a Grieving War Widow of Lying

La David Johnson, one of the four U.S. Army soldiers killed in an ambush attack in Niger, gathered on Saturday at Christ the Rock Church in Cooper City to say their final farewells to the young man they consider a hero. "I just listened", she added.

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.

Trump, who had accused Rep. Frederica Wilson of fabricating the statement, fired back on Twitter, saying: "I had a very respectful conversation with the widow of Sgt. And that's when he actually said, 'La David.' I heard him stumbling on trying to remember my husband's name, and that's what hurt me the most", she said.

The row had escalated when Mr Trump suggested that former President Barack Obama had not called the family of his chief of staff, General John Kelly, when their son was killed in Afghanistan.

She said she didn't like Trump's tone and that she broke down when Trump fumbled her husband's name. "Why couldn't I see my husband?"

In the days that followed, both Trump and Kelly publicly attacked the congresswoman, with Trump tweeting that Wilson's recounting of the call was "a total lie" and Kelly incorrectly accusing Wilson of bragging about her role in securing funding for the Federal Bureau of Investigation office that was dedicated in 2015.

Blast hits Kabul mosque, several dead
At that time, 13 people were killed and dozens injured in the assault claimed by Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL). The statement, however, said the local official was killed along with as many as 30 other worshipers.

The president had previously tweeted in defense: 'Democrat Congresswoman totally fabricated what I said to the wife of a soldier who died in action (and I have proof). "She is a highly respected Member of Congress who has demonstrated extremely competent leadership on a number of important issues, and we are especially proud of her fearless and uncompromising leadership to fight for the release of almost 300 Nigerian school girls who were kidnapped by the terrorist group Boko Haram". In return, Wilson told the New York Times that the White House "is full of white supremacists".

Johnson, of Miami Gardens, Florida, corroborated the story of Rep. Frederica Wilson, D-Fla. "I don't know what's in that box", she said.

Mrs. Johnson, however, backed up Wilson, someone she said is close to her family. She also said he was "a loving and caring father and husband".

"I need to see him so I will know that that is my husband. It could be empty for all I know".

His godsister, Lakia Smith, said Johnson would always come watch her at cheerleading practice.
