    Trump Tells Widow Soldier Knew 'What He Signed Up For': Rep.

    U.S. Rep. Frederica Wilson, D-Fla., said she overheard President Donald Trump tell the widow of Miami Gardens native Sgt. La David T. Johnson, a U.S. soldier killed in Niger, that her husband "must've known what he signed up for." She called the comment insensitive, but Trump said Wilson fabricated what he said, and that he has proof, though he did not immediately offer it up. The disagreement comes after Trump, asked in a news conference why he'd taken so long to discuss four U.S. soldiers killed in West Africa, boasted he likes to call the families of fallen soldiers, unlike Barack Obama and other presidents. Obama did call some Gold Star families and made extensive outreach to many.
