President Donald Trump on Monday said he had a "very respectful" phone conversation with the widow of a recently fallen US soldier after the soldier's widow said he failed to remember her husband's name in the condolence call.
Wilson, who is close to Johnson's family and was in the auto when Trump's call came, claimed that Trump said Johnson "knew what he signed up for, but I guess it still hurts".

The president had previously tweeted in defense: 'Democrat Congresswoman totally fabricated what I said to the wife of a soldier who died in action (and I have proof).
The 51-year-old journalist, who had also mentioned at the beginning of his open letter that he'd also suffered very public criticism from Trump on camera and on Twitter, urged the president to imagine what it was like if Tiffany or Ivanka were in Mrs Johnson's shoes. Asked why he had not spoken up earlier about the Niger ambush, in which Johnson and three other Special Forces troops lost their lives, his instinct was to attack presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama for not contacting as many families of the dead-a lie that he papered over by turning his chief of staff's own dead son into a political prop. The issue of condolence calls to the families of fallen soldiers came to the forefront last week, when Trump falsely claimed that his predecessors did less than he to reach out to Gold Star families. "What she said was 100 percent correct", Johnson said. "And it made me cry because I was very angry at the tone of his voice and how he said it".

La David Johnson was among four who died October 4 in Niger when they were attacked by militants tied to the Islamic State. I know my husband's body from head to toe.
"Whatever Miss Wilson said was not fabricated".
She added: 'I want the world to know how great of a soldier my husband was, and a loving and caring father and husband he was to our family'. Trump wrote on Twitter, referencing one of the Green Berets killed earlier this month in an ambush in Niger.
"They won't tell me anything".
She said it took them 48 hours to find her husband and she still hasn't been allowed to see the body.
