|U.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday said a Florida congresswoman "fabricated" an account of him telling the widow of a soldier killed in an ambush in Niger that her husband "knew what he signed up for." Democratic Rep. Frederica Wilson said she was in the car with Myeshia Johnson on Tuesday on the way to Miami International Airport to meet the body of Johnson's husband, Sgt. La David Johnson, when Trump called. Wilson said she and others heard part of the conversation on speakerphone.|
|In yet another early morning tweet Trump said ... "Democrat Congresswoman totally fabricated what I said to the wife of a soldier who died in action (and I have proof). Sad!" Trump wrote without specifying what proof he had. No 'proof' has been forthcoming.|
Wilson stood by her account, telling CNN on Wednesday that "the president evidently is lying, because what I said is true." Wilson said she and others in the car with Johnson heard Trump. Wilson said, "He doesn't even know how to sympathize with people. We're grieving. This is a grieving community. ... It's disgraceful for him to even tweet about this. And as I say, this gentleman has a brain disorder and he needs to be checked out."
