President Donald Trump challenged the account of a Democratic Congresswoman, who says he told the widow of a soldier killed in an ambush in Niger… “He knew what he signed up for.”
Trump wrote on Twitter on Wednesday:
Democrat Congresswoman totally fabricated what I said to the wife of a soldier who died in action (and I have proof). Sad!

Democratic Representative Frederica Wilson of Florida told reporters the President called the widow of Army Sgt. La David Johnson and was “insensitive,” adding that she heard part of the call on speakerphone when she was with the widow.
Wilson told CNN’s Don Lemon in an interview:
“Basically he said, ‘Well, I guess he knew what he signed up for. But I guess it still hurt.’ That’s what he said.”
A White House official told ABC News:
“The president’s conversations with the families of American heroes who have made the ultimate sacrifice are private.”
You remember Donald Trump had MASSIVE PROOF Hillary Clinton was a crook, right? Wonder what proof he has to shut this congresswoman down. Grab your popcorn folks!
Before we get the TRUTH… here’s the theatrical production brought to you by fake news outlet CNN and Don Lemon:
