Trump reportedly tells Widow of Fallen Soldier "I guess he knew what he signed up for" - BellaNaija

Donald Trump

United States President Donald Trump reportedly made insensitive comments to the widow of a soldier killed in battle.

Sergeant La David Johnson, 25, was killed by Islamic Sect Boko Haram in Niger.

According to CNNFrederica Wilson, a congresswoman, was riding in a limousine with Myeshia Johnson, the soldier’s widow, when Trump’s call came through and she heard his “insensitive comments.”

“Basically he said, ‘Well I guess he knew what he signed up for, but I guess it still hurts’,” Wilson said. “I heard what he said because the phone was on speaker.”

Wilson continued, saying:

This is a young woman who has two young children, who is six months’ pregnant with her third child [and] she has just lost her husband.

She was just told that he cannot have an open-casket funeral which gives her all kinds of nightmares of how his body must look, how his face must look. And this is what the United States President says to her?

That is not something you say to a grieving wife.

There were other family members in the car and they were all crying,” Ms Wilson said.

All she said when it was time to hang up was “Thank you, goodbye.”

Trump, however, has denied that he said that to the grieving widow.

He wrote on his Twitter: “Democrat Congresswoman totally fabricated what I said to the wife of a soldier who died in action (and I have proof). Sad!”

Speaking to reporters, Trump said he had a “very nice” conversation with Johnson’s widow, and “didn’t say what that congresswoman said. Didn’t say it at all.”

    The guy is just a really insensitive human being. How on earth did Americans vote this guy again? Maybe he is meant to serve as their punishment, like Buhari is to Nigerians.

    We must have to accept that idiots must always be with us since they are part of humanity.
