Frederica Wilson 2015 video shows John Kelly got it wrong

She knew Johnson through her mentoring program, and was with the Johnson family when Trump called.

"A congresswoman stood up, and in a long tradition of empty barrels making the most noise, stood up there in all of that and talked about how she was instrumental in getting the funding for that building, and how she took care of her constituents because she got the money, and she just called up President Obama, and on that phone call, he gave the money, the $20 million, to build the building, and she sat down", Kelly said Thursday.

"I feel very sorry for him because he feels such a need to lie on me and I'm not even his enemy", Wilson told the newspaper.

"She also had quite a few comments that day that weren't part of that speech and weren't part of that video that were also witnessed by many people that were there", Sanders said, referring to "what Gen. Kelly referenced yesterday".

The biggest takeaway from the briefing was Kelly using his time to attack Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.), who has been especially critical of Donald Trump for the remarks he made to Myeshia Johnson, the pregnant widow of U.S. Army Sgt.

Kelly made the comments at the White House on Thursday while discussing President Trump's conversations with the families of four USA soldiers killed in an ambush in Niger earlier this month. He knew what he was getting into by joining that one percent, he knew what the possibilities were because we're at war.

"Absolutely", she said, adding that Wilson - who is known for regularly wearing colorful cowboy hats - is "all hat, no cattle".

While Danley was away, Paddock wired $100,000 to an account in the Philippines, according to senior law enforcement officials. Danley says Paddock found her a cheap ticket to the Philippines and wanted her to take a trip home to see relatives.

Trump lashed out at Wilson, denying he said Johnson "knew what he signed up for" and calling Wilson a liar.

Wilson also recognized other members of Congress, including then-House Speaker John Boehner, for their key roles in helping to get the legislation quickly through Congress.

Kelly recalled that Dunford told him his son "was doing exactly what he wanted to do when he was killed".

The deaths of US troops is an emotional issue for Kelly, a retired four-star general, whose son was killed by a roadside bomb while on patrol in Afghanistan in 2010.

"I didn't say what that congresswoman said, didn't say it at all", Trump told reporters Tuesday when asked. Bryan Black, Dustin Wright, and Jeremiah Johnson were the courageous soldiers who died in the Islamic State ambush in Niger.

Other family members anticipated calls from Trump that were never made. Johnson's aunt, who raised the soldier from a young age, said the family took that remark to be disrespectful. Somehow, she perceived part of his speech as being "racist". But in doing so General Kelly, a respected retired Marine Corps general, admitted without question that his boss had lied to the press.

He also described how he and his wife learned of their own son's death.
