The mother of a soldier killed in Niger this month confirmed Florida Rep. Frederica S. Wilson’s claim that President Trump told her family that her son “must have known what he signed up for,” The Washington Post reported Wednesday. “President Trump did disrespect my son and my daughter and also me and my husband,” said Cowanda Jones-Johnson, the mother of Sgt. La David T. Johnson. Wilson told MSNBC that Johnson’s widow “was crying the whole time, and when she hung up the phone, she looked at me and said, ‘He didn’t even remember his name.’ That’s the hurting part.” Jones-Johnson told The Washington Post that Wilson’s account of the call was accurate.
