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. La David Johnson, one of the four U.S. Army soldiers killed in an ambush attack in Niger, gathered on Saturday at Christ the Rock Church in Cooper City to say their final farewells to the young man they consider a hero.
Pelosi said, "For them to mischaracterize her is really so sad". "I'm going to tell her how awesome her dad was and how a great father he was and how he died as a hero", Myeshia Johnson said Monday. Trump defended himself on Twitter, arguing he said Sgt. Johnson's name right away and "without hesitation". "I had a very respectful conversation with the widow of Sgt".
The escalating political mud fight has overshadowed the grief of Mrs Myeshia Johnson and the heroism of her dead husband, Sergeant La David Johnson, who gave his life for his country.
Johnson confirmed Wilson's account, saying the congresswoman was a longtime friend who was with the family in the vehicle when Trump called Tuesday and listened on speakerphone.
Myeshia Johnson appeared to confirm Ms Wilson's assertion that Mr Trump said her husband had known what he had signed up for when joining the military.
Johnson's other sister, Angie Ghent, said after the funeral service, that his reputation for being the "Wheelie King" is what she will hold on to. In return, Wilson told the New York Times that the White House "is full of white supremacists".

Johnson was asked if she had anything to say to the president.
Johnson, of Miami Gardens, Florida, corroborated the story of Rep. Frederica Wilson, D-Fla. She wants to know why it reportedly took 48 hours to find his body - and even questioned if it's really him in the coffin.
Johnson said Monday that Wilson's account was accurate.
"Why would we fabricate something like that?" she later added. Wilson and Trump have been locked in a war of words about a phone call the president made to Myeshia Johnson.
She said she was present during the call and stood by Ms Wilson's account of what was said. "The only way he remembered my husband's name because he told me he had my husband's report in front of him and that's when he actually said La David". "I don't know what's in that box. I haven't seen him since he came home". "I don't know anything".
