South Florida Honored Fallen Miami Gardens Sgt. La David Johnson With Dignity

Myeshia Johnson cries over the casket in Miami of her husband Sgt La David Johnson who was killed in an ambush in Niger

The pregnant widow of a fallen USA soldier whose combat death led to a political fight between Donald Trump and a Florida representative says the phone call from the president left her angry and crying.

Myeshia Johnson, widow of Sgt La David Johnson, told ABC News it was the president's "stumbling" that had "hurt her the most".

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".

Johnson was killed October 4 ambush in Niger along with Staff Sgt. Bryan Black, Staff Sgt. Dustin Wright and Staff Sgt. Jeremiah Johnson, along with five soldiers from Niger.

La David Johnson, one of the four US soldiers killed in a military operation in Niger on October 4, told ABC's Good Morning America that President Trump "made me cry even worse" when he called to offer condolences last week.

"We were appalled by White House Chief of Staff John Kelly's statements where he called Congresswoman Wilson an "empty barrel" and accused her of taking credit for securing funding for a new FBI Building in Miramar, Florida that was named after two fallen FBI agents, Benjamin Grogan and Jerry Dove".

She revealed his tone made her cry and he struggled to remember her husband's name.

The PM, who had visited the shrine in May this year, laid the foundation stones of five reconstruction projects at Kedarpuri.

Myeshia Johnson told "Good Morning America" Wilson's account of the call was "100% correct".

Mr Trump last week accused Ms Wilson of fabricating what he said during the call, tweeting that he had "proof" that this was the case.

She said he then had her husband's name on a report in front of him.

She said it took them 48 hours to find her husband and she still hasn't been allowed to see the body.

Johnson, of Miami Gardens, Florida, corroborated the story of Rep. Frederica Wilson, D-Fla. "I don't know what's in that box".

"Whatever Miss Wilson said was not fabricated".

She added, "They won't tell me". I'm getting sick and exhausted of this so-called politician using my husband as a political platform. Asked why he had not spoken up earlier about the Niger ambush, in which Johnson and three other Special Forces troops lost their lives, his instinct was to attack presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama for not contacting as many families of the dead-a lie that he papered over by turning his chief of staff's own dead son into a political prop. She was principal of a school Johnson's father attended.
