Trump Says Congresswoman ‘Fabricated’ Story About His Call With Special Forces Widow

On 10.18.17 07:42 AM posted by Will Racke

President Donald Trump on Wednesday accused a Florida congresswoman of misrepresenting the nature of his phone call to the widow of a special forces soldier who was killed in Niger last week.

Trump claimed Rep. Frederica Wilson, D-Fla., who was with the wife of deceased Army Sgt. La David Johnson at the time of the call, “fabricated”*a story*about what he said as he offered condolences.



“Democrat Congresswoman totally fabricated what I said to the wife of a soldier who died in action (and I have proof). Sad!” Trump tweeted Wednesday.

Wilson had previously told reporters that Trump’s call, which was placed shortly before Johnson’s coffin arrived in Miami, was insensitive and made Johnson’s wife cry. Johnson “knew what he signed up for,” Wilson also reportedly said Trump told the widow.

In response to Wilson’s claims, Trump said he had proof that the congresswoman was misrepresenting his remarks. It is likely that the White House has a recording and a transcript of the phone call, CNN’s Jake Tapper*noted*Wednesday morning.

In an appearance on CNN’s “New Day” Wednesday morning, Wilson claimed she also has proof of what was said during the call, attacking Trump as a “sick man” who has “no sympathy.”
