After telling reporters he was letting "a little time pass" before reaching out to the families of the four soldiers killed during an Ambush in Niger, President Trump finally made the phone calls.
However, during a call to the pregnant widow of Army Sgt. La David Johnson, Trump allegedly said the soldier "knew what he signed up for...but when it happens it hurts anyway."
According to U.S. Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.), Trump told widow Myeshia Johnson the remark during a phone call that lasted about five minutes.
"Yeah, he said that," Wilson told Local 10 News. "So insensitive. He should have not have said that. He shouldn't have said it."
Johnson leaves behind a two-year-old son and a six-year-old daughter. His widow is six-months pregnant with their third child and she emotionally draped her body over his casket when it arrived at Miami International airport.
Eventually, Johnson's mother, Cowanda Jones-Johnson, told the Washington Post she was in the car during the call and she confirms the account.
"President Trump did disrespect my son and my daughter and also me and my husband," Jones-Johnson told The Post via Facebook Messenger.
When asked if Wilson's details of the conversation between the president and the family were correct, she simply replied: "Yes."
