Johnson's pregnant widow, Myeshia Johnson, told ABC News that she did not write the post blasting Rep. Frederica Wilson, D-Fla., and defending President Trump. La David Johnson, one of four USA soldiers killed in Niger, took place on Saturday, his tragic death politicized by the president, who continues to feud with a Congresswoman who was close to the family.
Johnson said when the president's phone call came in to the master sergeant in the auto with her, she asked that it be placed on speakerphone so others could hear it. It was her first interview after a Democratic congresswoman accused Trump of being callous in the call by telling the widow that her husband "knew what he signed up for". He excoriated Wilson for listening in on the phone call, but Johnson said Wilson was there at her behest.
He said: 'It stuns me that a member of congress would have listened in on that conversation. He's out there fighting for our country, why can't you remember his name?.
The president has denied the accusation, at one point tweeting: "Democrat Congresswoman totally fabricated what I said to the wife of a soldier who died in action (and I have proof)".
Ms Wilson, who was by Mrs Johnson's side during the conversation, later said the billionaire "does not possess the character, empathy or grace to be President of the United States".

Instead of backing down, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders piled on last Friday and said Mr Kelly was justified in accusing the lawmaker of grandstanding, despite erring on the facts. 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. But Johnson backed up Rep. Wilson's version of events.
Last week, Trump's chief of staff said he was "stunned" and "broken-hearted" by the criticism of the president's phone call. "Why couldn't I see my husband?" "I don't know what's in that box". She also said he was "a loving and caring father and husband". "It could be empty for all I know".
She added: "Everyone knows when you go to war, you could possibly not come back alive".
"The questions that I have that I need answered is I want to know why it took them 48 hours to find my husband", she told Stephanopoulos.
