After facing criticism for not calling the families of four soldiers who died in combat, President Trump reached out to one of the widows Tuesday and said her husband “knew what he signed up for … but when it happens it hurts anyway,” according to Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.).
The call between Trump and Myeshia Johnson, the widow of Army Sgt. La David Johnson, lasted about five minutes, according to accounts that Wilson provided to local media.
Wilson, a friend of the family, was in the car for the call, which happened before the fallen soldier’s remains arrived at Miami International Airport.
“Yes, he said it,” Wilson told the media.
“He knew what he signed up for,” says the man who managed to get multiple deferments during Vietnam for bone spurs.
Donald Trump is not fit to be President of a local Rotary, much less of the United States of America. He cares for no one except his family and only some of them. He should not hold any office which has responsibility for the welfare of people since he hasn’t an ounce of empathy.
