Trump Disputes Widow's Claim He Stumbled Over Soldier's Name

("Good Morning America"/Twitter)

President Donald Trump said in a tweet that he did not forget the name of fallen soldier Sgt. La David Johnson when he made a condolence call to his family, contradicting the widow’s claim that he did stumble over the name.

Trump sent out the tweet on Monday after the widow, Myeshia Johnson told ABC’s "Good Morning America" in her first television interview that she was not only upset when Trump told her that "I’m sure he knew what he signed up for but, when it happens, it hurts anyway." 

But what hurt her the most, she said, was when Trump could not remember her husband’s name and stumbled over its pronunciation when he saw it on the file in front of him.

Referring to criticism from Trump and the White House that Democratic Congresswoman Frederica Wilson fabricated the criticism of Trump for political purposes, Johnson told ABC that "whatever Miss Wilson said was not fabricated . . .  What she said was 100% correct."
