  • U.S. Army Sgt. La David Johnson is wheeled to the hearse after the viewing at the Christ the Rock Community Church

La David Johnson discussed her condolence phone call with President Donald Trump on "Good Morning America" Monday.

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

Johnson, a mother of two who is expecting her third child, is the widow of U.S. Army Sgt.

'Think of what Sgt. Johnson would want, ' he told Trump in his piece to camera. Myeshia Johnson, who has now been slandered by the president, too, would surely rather be left alone.

Trump accused Wilson of fabricating the story, but we all know who the liar was.

Johnson was killed October 4 ambush in Niger along with Staff Sgt. Bryan Black, Staff Sgt. Dustin Wright and Staff Sgt. Jeremiah Johnson, along with five soldiers from Niger.

Of those families who agreed to speak, about nine said they had contact with the president while nine others said they had not. He knew what the possibilities were because we're at war", Kelly says he had been told by a friend and colleague.

Gen Kelly has yet to comment on the president's latest remarks. "Also", Rhodes added, "Obama never attacked a Gold Star family". Bush, even at the height of two wars, " wrote all the families of the fallen", said Freddy Ford, spokesman for the ex-president.

Ocean currents bring the warmer water upwards, where it melts the blankets of ice that had formed on the ocean's surface. Usually, a very cold but fresh layer of water covers a warmer and saltier layer of water, acting as insulation.


On the day of Johnson's funeral, the president continued to tweet about Rep. Wilson, calling her "wacky", which many found the height of disrespect as well as a distraction from the unusual circumstances surrounding Johnson's death.

The president's tweet comes after Myeshia Johnson during an interview on ABC's "Good Morning America" confirmed Rep.

Last week, Trump called the Gold Star widow while she was in a vehicle, and she asked that the conversation be put on a speaker phone. "And it made me cry because I was very angry at the tone of his voice and how he said it". Wilson was riding with Johnson's family to meet the body and heard the call on speakerphone. 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.

"They won't show me a finger, a hand". I know my husband's body from head to toe. I don't know what's in that box.

"Whatever Miss Wilson said was not fabricated".

Johnson's GMA appearance comes during a swirling political debate over the circumstances of the death of her husband and three other USA soldiers in Niger. A Trump spokeswoman said it was "inappropriate" to question Kelly in light of his stature as a retired four-star general. When his photos come on the TV screen or I see them in the newspapers I am incredibly proud of him and what he accomplished. "I heard him stumbling on trying to remember my husband's name, and that hurt me the 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?"
