La David Johnson's mother, Cowanda Jones-Johnson, told The Associated Press on Wednesday that the congresswoman's account was correct.
Sgt. Johnson was among four servicemen killed in the Niger ambush. By the end of the call, President Trump invited the widow to visit the White House and meet him if she was ever in Washington DC calling Natasha and her family, "just the kind of family that we want". Trump has said Wilson "fabricated" the comments.
President Trump is facing backlash after questioning whether his predecessors did enough to honor service members who died in combat. His older brother, Ryan Cross, who's an Army veteran, said Trump portrays himself as a champion of the armed forces but it's "all talk and no action".
"Mr. President, you've crossed the line there". She says these efforts "will actually have an effect". "Somebody noticed", she said.
De Alencar said she understands what the soldiers' families are going through.
President Donald Trump speaks to the media during a meeting with Governor Ricardo Rossello of Puerto Rico in the Oval Office at the White House on October 19, 2017 in Washington, D.C.
As many news outlets have pointed out, Trump's statement that Obama did not contact the families of fallen soldiers was false. "I went to Dover AFB with 44 and saw him comfort the families of both the fallen military & DEA", Holder wrote on Twitter after Trump made the claim. Kelly accused Wilson of "selfish behavior". He left a "really nice" phone message with his cellphone number in case she needed anything, she said. Wilson said: "The dog can bark at the moon all night long but it doesn't become an issue until the moon barks back".
"At that moment when my world was upside down and me and my kids didn't know which way we were going, it felt like I was talking to just another regular human", Natasha De Alencar told the Washington Post of the call. Trump said on Fox News radio.
Trump feuded with one Gold Star family during last year's campaign, assailing the parents of slain Army Capt. Humayun Khan, who died in Iraq in 2004, after they criticized him from the stage at the Democratic National Convention. A lot of them didn't make calls.
The fallout continues over President Donald Trump's condolence call to the widow of a US soldier killed in Niger.
John Kelly tells reporters at the White House that the president had expressed his condolences "in the best way that he could". Say hello to your children, and tell them your father, he was a great hero that I respected.
President Donald Trump is rejecting claims he was disrespectful to the grieving family of a slain soldier.
A total of 2,258 American service members have died in Afghanistan since the 2001 invasion. President Obama I think probably did sometimes and maybe sometimes he didn't.
The president's lack of compassion for their pain, now demonstrated again in the case of Sgt. LaDavid Johnson, is shocking even to someone - like Trevor Noah - who has learned to expect the worst from Trump.
