La David Johnson's widow said Trump's call 'made me cry even worse'



The widow of an Army soldier killed in Niger has spoken out about her condolence call with President Trump, noting she has "nothing to say" to the president after the controversial call.

Myeshia Johnson, the wife of deceased Sgt. La David Johnson, was thurst into the national spotlight after Trump reportedly made controversial comments during the telephone call. She told Good Morning America that the president only made the death more difficult for her.

"Very upset and hurt; it made me cry even worse," said Johnson.

Johnson was one of four Army Special Forces soldiers killed in Niger after being attacked by Islamic State fighters. He became the center of attention after Rep. Frederica Wilson said Trump told the grieving 25-year-old that Johnson "must have known what he signed up for." Mrs. Johnson noted that Trump "couldn't remember my husband's name ... that's what hurt me the most."
