Dotard kept referring to slain soldier as 'your guy' to pregnant widow

"Democrat Congresswoman totally fabricated what I said to the wife of a soldier who died in action (and I have proof)".

Miss Wilson said that she was in the auto on the way to Miami airport to meet her husband's coffin when Mrs Johnson received the five minute call from the President.

Mr Trump, she said, then added: "I guess it still hurt".

Ms Wilson said: "When [Ms Johnson] got off the phone, she said, 'He didn't even know his name".

A Florida congresswoman said President Donald Trump offended the widow of a deceased soldier when he called her on Tuesday to offer his condolences.

The White House had said Tuesday that Trump placed calls Tuesday to the families of all four service members killed in Niger on October 4.

Trump on Monday falsely claimed that former President Barack Obama didn't call the families of fallen service members while he was in office, but when pressed admitted that he didn't know Obama's practice. (SOUNDBITE) PRESIDENT TRUMP SAYING: "President Obama and other presidents majority didn't make calls, a lot of them didn't make calls" And then, during a radio interview, Trump brought up Chief of Staff John Kelly, who's son died in Afghanistan in 2010. "He said, 'No other president has ever done something like this, ' but he said, 'I'm going to do it'".

Holder, a top ally of Obama's who was attorney general for the first six years of his presidency, said Trump's comments made him feel he needed to speak out. La David T. Johnson and Myeshia Johnson's children had raised more than $130,000 as of early Wednesday morning.

The White House said Wednesday that a check has been sent.

Wilson told the Herald on Tuesday that she heard that call on speakerphone from Trump to the widow of Johnson, the soldier and father who was killed in Niger whose body was returned home that afternoon.

The president's response shocked him.

Kelly is "intensely private about not only his own service but certainly what happened to his son", Panetta said.

Johnson's widow was "balled up" in the vehicle, distraught after learning she would not be able to see her husband in an open casket, Wilson said. What's different is that Trump picked a political fight over who's done better to honour the war dead and their families. "Just a letter saying "I'm sorry".

Trump has made personal contact with some families of the fallen but not all.

He invoked the death of Kelly's son in his defense Tuesday, suggesting that reporters ask the retired four-star general whether Obama reached out to him when his son died serving the country. Trump said on Fox News radio.

"I could not believe he was saying that, and I wish I had it recorded because the man did say this", Baldridge said. "That made me mad in a way that few other things have".
