Trump disputes Gold Star widow's account of phone call

Myeshia Johnson, wife of U.S. Army Sergeant La David Johnson, who was among four special forces soldiers killed in Niger, kisses his coffin at a graveside service in Hollywood, Florida, October 21, 2017.

President Trump's condolence call to Myeshia Johnson sparked outrage when Democratic Rep. Frederica Wilson, a family friend, accused President Trump of making an insensitive remark to the widow.

Wilson later told reporters that Johnson's family had taken Trump's comments as an insult.

On Monday, Myeshia Johnson called Wilson's telling of the conversation "100 percent correct".

Trump shot back that Wilson had "totally fabricated" the account, but the soldier's widow and aunt confirmed it as true. "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". La David Johnson, who was killed in an ambush in Niger.

The american director James Toback accused of harassment by 38 women
Director James Toback denied he sexually harassed 38 women after a Los Angeles Times report on Sunday detailed the encounters. Then he'd allegedly masturbate in front of them or grind against their bodies and ejaculate in his trousers .

"[I was] very upset and hurt; it made me cry even worse", Myeshia Johnson told "Good Morning America" about her conversation with the president, adding she has "nothing to say" to him. 'You are putting his widow in the awful position of having to fight for her dignity when she should be concentrating on taking care of herself, her health, her two children, and the one on the way. "I was very angry at the tone of his voice and how he said it". She revealed she was not allowed to see the body of her husband, who was killed with three other USA soldiers by terrorists in Nigeron October 4.

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. I'm getting sick and exhausted of this so-called politician using my husband as a political platform. "Every time I asked to see my husband, they wouldn't let me". I don't know what's in that box.

"The timeline we have is the first indicator that the unit called for external support until an hour later", he said, explaining that it's unclear whether the soldiers felt they were able to handle the attack until then. Trump tweeted that Wilson "fabricated" his statement and the fight escalated through the week.

Trump responded to the "GMA" interview shortly after it aired, writing on Twitter that he "had a very respectful conversation with the widow of Sgt".

"They won't tell me anything".
