Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.) stood by her claim that President Trump made the widow of Army Sgt. La David Terrence Johnson, killed in Niger, break down in tears, even after the commander in chief denied the allegations on Twitter on Wednesday morning:
"I don't know what kind of proof he could be talking about," said Wilson, who was in the car with the grieving wife when she received Trump's phone call. Wilson added: "This man is a sick man. He's cold-hearted, and he feels no pity or sympathy for anyone."
Wilson added that the widow, Myeshia Johnson, told her that Trump "didn't even know" her husband's name.
"This might wind up to be Mr. Trump's Benghazi," Wilson said. Jeva Lange
