Trump: Ask Gen. Kelly if Obama Called Him After Son Died in Afghanistan


President Donald Trump said a Democrat congresswoman's claim that he made a fallen soldier's widow cry is "totally fabricated."

Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.) claimed that when Trump called Myeshia Johnson, he told her that her husband, Army Sgt. La David Johnson, "knew what he signed up for, but I guess it still hurt."

Wilson said she was in the car at the time and overheard the comments on speakerphone.

Pete Hegseth said on "Fox & Friends" that this is another example of Trump's opponents taking every opportunity to twist or spin his words, even if it involves a fallen soldier.

"They want to question at every turn what he says he's committed to," Hegseth said. "There's no one more committed, I believe, to our service members, to our veterans than this president."

He said this shows how committed Democrats are to resisting Trump no matter what.

"Will a few of them disarm and walk back and say, 'You know what? This is silly. Let the commander-in-chief speak to a widow and have a private conversation?'" Hegseth said.

Johnson was among four service members who died last week in northwestern Africa during an ambush.
