Rep. Frederica Wilson, D-Fla., said Tuesday night that Trump, in a condolence call to the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson, remarked that “he knew what he was getting into.” The president’s reported comments, which Wilson said she overheard on a speaker phone in the car with Myeshia Johnson and the fallen soldier’s mother, were widely criticized as insensitive, leading to a Trump retort via tweet Wednesday morning: “Democrat Congresswoman totally fabricated what I said to the wife of a soldier who died in action (and I have proof).
