President Trump is going after Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-FL) and claiming she lied about his call to the grieving widow of one of the Green Berets who was recently killed in Niger.
Democrat Congresswoman totally fabricated what I said to the wife of a soldier who died in action (and I have proof). Sad!

After coming under fire for not addressing the ISIS ambush earlier this month, Trump reached out to the pregnant widow of Sgt. La David Johnson last night in order to express his sympathies for her loss. Wilson says she was with Myeshia Johnson during the call, and that the president said on a speaker phone “he knew what he signed up for…but when it happens it hurts anyway.”
This allegation has already created new questions about the president’s sensitivity, though Trump claims he has proof that Wilson’s words are bogus.
