Sgt. La David Johnson’s widow backed up Rep. Frederica Wilson’s account of a condolence call from President Donald Trump.


In an interview with “Good Morning America,” Myeshia Johnson said Trump “made me cry” on a phone call she received from him when she was receiving her husband’s body at Dover.

“The president said, ‘he knew what he signed up for but it hurts anyways,’ and it made me cry because I was very angry at the tone of his voice…he couldn’t remember my husband’s name,” Johnson said. “The only way he remembered my husband’s name is because he told me he had my husband’s report in front of him.”

“I heard him stumbling on trying to remember my husband’s name and that’s what hurt me the most because if my husband is out here fighting for our country…why can’t you remember his name?” she asked.

Johnson explained that Rep. Wilson has been close with her family for a long time, and the phone call was on speaker so that Johnson’s aunt and uncle could hear the call.

“Whatever Ms. Wilson said was not fabricated,” Johnson asserted. “What she said was 100 percent correct.”
