Rep. Frederica Wilson: John Kelly Owes Me An Apology

In defending himself, Mr Trump erroneously accused former presidents of failing to call military families whose loved ones were killed in action.

Wilson, who is close to Johnson's family and was in the vehicle when Trump's call came, claimed that Trump said Johnson "knew what he signed up for, but I guess it still hurts".

Myeshia Johnson said on GMA the president did say her husband "knew what he signed up for, but it hurts anyway".

Myeshia told ABC News: 'What he said was he knew what he signed up for but it hurts anyways. "And that's what made me upset and cry even more because my husband was an awesome soldier". She added: "The only way he could remember my husband's name was he told me he had my husband's report in front of him and that's when he actually said La David".

Trump weighs in on 'fake' dossier on his alleged Russian Federation ties
The dossier, first released publicly by Buzzfeed, was filled with unfounded smears about Trump that lacked evidence or proof. Steele worked for the firm Fusion GPS, which was initially hired by one of Trump's Republican primary opponents.

The White House later said he had spoken to the families of those killed in Niger but did not say when. "La David Johnson, and spoke his name from beginning, without hesitation!" he tweeted.

The Democrat was referring to remarks Kelly made about Wilson while speaking to reporters Thursday, during which he called her an "empty barrel". "I don't have nothing to say to him". "I had a very nice conversation".

The President waited 12 days to comment on the soldiers' deaths before being asked about his silence at a Rose Garden news conference last Monday.

Trump has disputed the congresswoman's claim, which Myeshia Johnson backed up during Monday's interview.

Hero Asia Cup: India beat Pakistan 4-0 in Super Four match
Lalit finished off a brilliant team move with a fierce backhander in the 52nd minute to make it 3-0 in India's favour. The tempo of the match increased towards the end of the first quarter but the teams ended the first quarter goal-less.

Trump tweeted Wilson "fabricated" his statement and the fight escalated through the week. And just after Johnson's wife Myeshia Johnson arrived with the couple's 6 year-old daughter and 2 year-old son, it started to pour which only made the day feel even more somber.

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".

The ensuing debate has focused on attacks against Republican Frederica Wilson that have proved to be inaccurate but that the White House has refused to back away from, with the latest episode ensnaring Chief of Staff John Kelly, a decorated retired Marine general.

He responded to this criticism by falsely claiming that Mr Obama, and other former U.S. presidents had not called the relatives of dead service members.
