 Trump hits back at military widow’s accusations

International Editor

The widow of a US soldier killed by Islamists in Africa said the President was not able to remember her husband’s name during his controversial phone call to her.

The call of condolence to Myeshia Johnson, widow of Sgt La David Johnson, made headlines last week when a Democratic congresswoman who heard it said the President had been disrespectful. Donald Trump disputes the widow’s account of that phone call.
