Trump Couldn't Remember Soldier's Name While Speaking To His Widow

Congresswoman Frederica Wilson (D-FL) claims President Donald Trump could not remember Sgt. La David Johnson's name as he spoke with his widow Myeshia Johnson according to the Chicago Tribune.

Congresswoman Frederica Wilson (D-FL) claims President Donald Trump could not remember Sgt. La David Johnson's name as he spoke with his widow Myeshia Johnson according to the Chicago Tribune.

Some background is needed. Yesterday, the President called the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson after Trump was criticized for not calling the families of deceased soldiers.

U.S. President Donald Trump told U.S. Army Sgt. La David Johnson's widow Tuesday that "he knew what he signed up for ...but when it happens it hurts anyway," when he died serving in northwestern Africa, according to Rep.Frederica Wilson, D-Miami Gardens. "Yes, he said it," Wilson said. "It's so insensitive. He should have not have said that. He shouldn't have said it."

After the Congresswoman went public with how the President reportedly treated Johnson, Trump attacked the Congresswoman.

In response to this attack, Wilson reaffirmed that Trump mistreated Johnson. In her response, she also added that Trump could not remember U.S. Army Sgt. La David Johnson's name while speaking to his widow.

Wilson did not back down from her account, adding that Trump at one point could not remember the slain sergeant's name. "It's disgraceful for him to even tweet about this," she told CNN. She added a personal insult: "And as I say, this gentleman has a brain disorder and he needs to be checked out."
