Republican Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker is criticizing President Donald Trump for a phone call he made to the family of an Army sergeant killed in Niger.

Of course, Trump denied the reports as fake news.

When asked by Miami station WPLG if she indeed heard Trump say that she answered: "Yeah, he said that".

"You mean to tell me that I've become so important that the White House is following me and my words?" "He said. something to the fact that 'he knew what he was getting into when he signed up but I guess it hurts anyway", Wilson said.

"I heard what he said because the phone was on speaker".

Congresswoman Frederica Wilson was riding in a limousine with the soldier's widow, Myeshia Johnson, and her family to meet the casket at Miami International Airport when she overheard the President's call and what she described on Twitter as his "insensitive comments".

Wilson also further cemented her position on Wednesday by releasing an official statement. "President Obama and other presidents majority didn't make calls, a lot of them didn't make calls", Trump said on Monday.

His family and Ms Wilson are raising money for a scholarship towards college education for his children.

"Democrat Congresswoman totally fabricated what I said to the wife of a soldier who died in action (and I have proof). It was nearly as if he forgot his name, and that's what hurt the mother so badly, the wife, she said 'he doesn't even know his name'". Wilson said: "The dog can bark at the moon all night long but it doesn't become an issue until the moon barks back".

But in a Wednesday morning tweet, Trump said Wilson's description of the call was "fabricated".

"And they said 'No".

The call came after the US President falsely claimed his predecessor, Barack Obama, did not contact the families of US troops killed in the line of duty.

Trump "expressed his condolences in the best way that he could", Kelly added. But the firestorm he ignited over his assertions of empathy for American service members spread into a third contentious day. The White House will not go into detail about what was said on the call, saying that it was private.
