Trump denies account of solider's widow over his condolence call

Johnson 25 died from wounds sustained during enemy contact. He was assigned to 3rd Special Forces Group on Fort Bragg

The pregnant widow of a fallen USA soldier on Monday contradicted President Donald Trump's account of his phone call about her husband's death and said what he told her "made me cry even worse".

The row between Wilson and Trump began October 17 when the Miami-area Democrat said Trump told Myeshia Johnson in a phone call that her husband "knew what he signed up for" and didn't appear to know his name, a version later backed up by Johnson's aunt.

"[I was] very upset and hurt". "And that made me cry even more".

President Donald Trump on Monday said he had a "very respectful" phone conversation with the widow of a recently fallen US soldier after the soldier's widow said he failed to remember her husband's name in the condolence call.

Ms Wilson, who was by Mrs Johnson's side during the conversation, later said the billionaire "does not possess the character, empathy or grace to be President of the United States".

Suspect arrested after eight hurt in Munich knife rampage
About three hours after the stabbings, police arrested a man matching that description who had initially tried to evade officers. The motivation for the attack is still unclear as the suspect refused to make a statement during his interrogation by police.

Wilson, who was present for the speaker phone conversation, recalled that Trump said "he knew what he signed up for, but I guess it still hurts anyway".

Trump last week lashed out at Rep. Wilson, disputing her account of what he said in the phone call. "And it made me cry because I was very angry at the tone of his voice and how he said it".

Trump denied the second claim in a tweet.

Wilson's account of the phone call was "100 percent correct", Johnson told George Stephanopoulos Monday on Good Morning America. Wilson was riding with Johnson's family to meet the body and heard the call on speakerphone.

"Why would we fabricate something like that?" she later added.

The Senate Judiciary Committee launched an investigation into the handling of a criminal probe linked to the deal after the Hill reported the FBI had evidence that Russian nuclear officials were involved in fraudulent dealings in 2009, before the uranium deal was approved.

But Johnson's widow confirmed Wilson's account of the conversation she had with Trump and her reaction to it.

She says she's gotten no answers from the government about how or where her husband died and says they refused to let her view his body.

'And to be extremely candid, as a black man, I am always looking for role models who look like me, and the latest one I found was your husband.

"They won't show me a finger, a hand". 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 don't know what's in that box.
