Trump accuses Dem lawmaker of ‘totally fabricating’ comments to soldier’s widow in early morning rage tweet

Published

President Donald Trump on Wednesday lashed out at Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-FL) after she accused him of making insensitive comments to the widow of slain U.S. Army Sgt. David Johnson.

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

Trump in the past has bluffed about having “proof” to disprove accusations leveled against him, such as when he warned former FBI Director James Comey that he might have “tapes” of their conversations that would show that Trump didn’t repeatedly ask him for unconditional loyalty.

When pushed to release these tapes, however, Trump eventually acknowledged that no such tapes existed.

Wilson on Tuesday said that Trump told Myeshia Johnson, whose husband was killed in Niger earlier, that Sgt. Johnson “knew what he was signing up for” when he joined the Army, although he did acknowledge that it’s still “sad” when soldiers die.

In the momentous winter of 1860-61, the United States literally split in two during the haze between the failed presidency of Pennsylvania’s James Buchanan and the first-ever Republican administration of Abraham Lincoln that terrified the slave-addled South.Now consider this scenario: A seemingly unending crisis has ripped millions of jobs from the U.S. economy, with a growing homelessne...

"If the basics aren't followed, there is only one way this pandemic is going to go. It's going to get worse and worse and worse."

The head of the World Health Organization warned Monday that a "return to the 'old normal'" was not in "the foreseeable future" and urged global leaders to act cooperatively to control the coronavirus pandemic.
