The President has come under heavy scrutiny this week for his response to the widow of a fallen US soldier.
Via USA Today:
Rep. Frederica Wilson, D-Fla., said she overheard the comment during a conversation on speakerphone Tuesday between Trump and Army Sgt. La David Johnson's widow, Myeshia Johnson, as they traveled together to meet Johnson's body in Miami.
Trump challenged Wilson's claim in a tweet Wednesday: "Democrat Congresswoman totally fabricated what I said to the wife of a soldier who died in action (and I have proof). Sad!"
La David Johnson’s mother, Cowanda Jones-Johnson, confirmed Wilson's account of the conversation to The Washington Post.
"President Trump did disrespect my son and my daughter and also me and my husband," Jones-Johnson said.
