GoFundMe Raises More Than $500000 for Army Sgt. La David Johnson

RIP Sgt. Johnson

La David Johnson, one of four soldier killed in Niger earlier this month. The calls followed Trump's claims Monday and Tuesday that his Democratic predecessor, Barack Obama, had not often made such calls to families.

The president initially said Wilson's account of the conversation was a "complete fabrication", but Kelly confirmed Wilson's version of the call.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders also called Wilson's use of the widow to criticize Trump "appalling and disgusting". "He said. something to the fact that 'he knew what he was getting into when he signed up but I guess it hurts anyway", Wilson said.

Trump tweeted a denial and said he had "proof", but of course produced none. La David Johnson, who was killed during a mission in Niger, was on hand to receive the remains.

"I didn't say what that congresswoman said; didn't say it all".

Mr Trump denied making the comments, tweeting yesterday: "Democrat Congresswoman totally fabricated what I said to the wife of a soldier who died in action (and I have proof)".

Wilson said she has requested an investigation and a classified meeting once she returns to Washington D.C.

Man Utd legend Scholes: Matic awkward
The 29-year-old arrived at Old Trafford in the summer to work with Mourinho after Chelsea allowed him to leave Stamford Bridge for €44.7 million.

The mother of the soldier, Sgt La David Johnson, claimed Trump told his widow that her son "knew what he was signing up for". "It was nearly as if he forgot his name, and that's what hurt the mother so badly, the wife, she said 'he doesn't even know his name'".

"If you look at President Obama and other presidents, a lot of them didn't make calls", Mr Trump said during a news conference in the Rose Garden with the Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell. "He's a hero. I was in the auto when President Trump called".

But he said he is "confident" that as soon as he got off the phone with Mr. Trump, the president asked someone to determine what happened in Niger, and why the team did not have air support at the time. She said "not only did he disrespect my son", but also the family. According to Trump, he said no such thing. His biological mother, Samara, died when he was a child, according to the slain soldier's obituary.

"There was no reason for the President to be so insensitive, not only to the family of this soldier, but the impervious rhetoric is disrespectful to the family of every soldier that has paid the ultimate price of freedom", she said.

Wilson said she did not hear the entire conversation, and Myeshia Johnson told her she couldn't remember everything that was said when asked it about it later.

And then he added this: "If you look at President Obama and other presidents, majority didn't make calls".

"He offered his condolences. and then I talked for probably, it was a 20-minute phone call, and I probably talked for 17 minutes of it", Wright said.
