'Upset and Hurt': Fallen Soldier's Widow on Trump's Condolence Call

U.S. Army Sgt. La David Terrence Johnson 25 was among four U.S. Green Berets killed in Niger on Oct. 4

Kelly made false claim in dispute over call

Myeshia Johnson, widow of Sgt La David Johnson, told ABC that the US President made her cry as "he couldn't remember my husband's name" until he looked at a report in front of him. On Tuesday, Trump called the family of Sgt. Johnson and according to Florida Rep. Frederica Wilson, Trump told Myeshia Johnson that her husband "knew what he signed up for. I'm gonna remember that bike", she said.

Johnson was killed October 4 ambush in Niger along with Staff Sgt. Bryan Black, Staff Sgt. Dustin Wright and Staff Sgt. Jeremiah Johnson, along with five soldiers from Niger.

Frederica Wilson and Trump have traded barbs for almost a week on the controversy stemming from the President's condolence call to Myeshia Johnson, the widow of Sgt.

The deal took place while Clinton was secretary of State, but her campaign and former State Department officials have said she was not involved in the approval process.

World Health Organization revokes controversial appointment of Robert Mugabe as goodwill ambassador
He said he remained "firmly committed to working with all countries and their leaders" to build universal health care. Hillel Neuer, executive director of the Geneva-based group UN Watch, described Mugabe's appointment as "sickening".

Last week, Trump's chief of staff said he was "stunned" and "broken-hearted" by the criticism of the president's phone call.

Johnson also said she has received little information about her husband's death and complained she has not been able to see his body.

Myeshia Johnson appeared to confirm Ms Wilson's assertion that Mr Trump said her husband had known what he had signed up for when joining the military. "Whatever Ms. Wilson said was not fabricated", Johnson said in her first interview since her husband's death. "So, he loved everybody - he was a peaceful person", she said. She described Trump as "stumbling on my husband's name - that's what hurt me most".

What's perhaps most remarkable about the president's continued objections, though, is that his own White House isn't doing the same. "It made me cry, because I was very angry at the tone of his voice and couldn't remember my husband's name".

Vegetables recalled from Walmart, other stores due to listeria concerns
The recalled products were sold throughout the USA and Canada with "best if used by" dates from October 11 to October 20. Nine vegetable products at Walmart are being recalled including bags of broccoli, cauliflower and vegetable medleys.

"They won't tell me anything".

The women of the Congressional Black Caucus on Sunday demanded that White House chief of staff John Kelly apologize for his attack on Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-FL). "I don't know what's in that box", she said. A Trump spokeswoman said it was "inappropriate" to question Kelly in light of his stature as a retired four-star general.

Mrs. Johnson, however, backed up Wilson, someone she said is close to her family. "I don't have nothing to say to him".

Asked if she had a message for the president, Johnson replied: "No. I don't know anything". And Johnson said her uncle-in-law was Wilson's elementary school principal.
