In a Twitter post on Monday soon after the interview aired, Trump said, "I had a very respectful conversation with the widow of Sgt".
Johnson's comments, her first to the media about the condolence call from Trump, were likely to fuel a controversy that has swirled for days around the president's handling of the call to the widow.
In Monday's interview, Myeshia Johnson said, "The president said that he (her husband) knew what he signed up for, but it hurts anyway.And it made me cry because I was very angry at the tone of his voice and how he couldn't remember my husband's name". While Trump has disputed the story - even claiming to have still-yet-to-be-produced "proof" to back it up - the White House has largely seemed to confirm that he said the things he has been accused of saying. "I just listened", she added.

Wilson was riding with the family of Johnson to meet the body and said she heard the call from the president on speakerphone.
The White House has denied Trump told the widow that Johnson "knew what he signed up for" and the claim he forgot the fallen soldier's name during the call. And that's what made me upset and made me cry even more - because he was an awesome soldier'.

Trump administration officials sound alarm on nuclear North Korea
"Our nuclear programme and weapons are aimed at the USA ", the diplomat said in comments carried by Russian state news agency TASS.
"Whatever Ms. Wilson said was not fabricated", Johnson said Monday morning.
Mrs. Johnson, however, backed up Wilson, someone she said is close to her family. "La David Johnson, and spoke his name from beginning, without hesitation!" he tweeted. All speakers - including Wilson - concentrated rather on Johnson's sacrifice.
Johnson said she has received little information from the military about how her husband died. 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. "Why would we fabricate something like that?" She wants to see his body to confirm it's him, but the military has not allowed that, she said. She stated she has nothing to say to Trump now.
