Twitter Slams Trump for Disputing Gold Star Widow’s Account of Their Call


President Donald Trump defended his conduct on a condolence call Monday, after Gold Star widow Myeshia Johnson claimed on Good Morning America that the President couldn’t even remember the name of Johnson’s husband — Sgt. La David Johnson, who was killed during an ambush in Niger.

“I had a very respectful conversation with the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson, and spoke his name from beginning, without hesitation!” Trump tweeted.

Twitter was outraged at Trump for disputing Myeshia Johnson’s account. Here’s a sampling of the reaction.
