Myeshia Johnson cries over the casket in Miami of her husband Sgt La David Johnson who was killed in an ambush in Niger

In a tweet Monday morning, Trump described the conversation as "very respectful" and claimed he spoke La David Johnson's name from the "beginning, without hesitation!" La David Johnson, told Good Morning America on Monday that Trump, in a condolence call, said her husband "knew what he signed up for". She added: "The only way he could remember my husband's name was he told me he had my husband's report in front of him and that's when he actually said La David". Asked if she had anything to say to Trump now, Johnson said, "No, I don't have nothing to say to him".

Johnson said she was distraught over Trump's alleged oversights during the call, which came as the Johnson family and Rep. Frederica Wilson, D-Florida, who is a friend of the family, rode in a limo to receive Johnson's body from Dover Air Force Base. The family member who raised Johnson has called Wilson's account of the call "very accurate" and the White House has not refuted that Trump spoke those words.

"It made me cry because I was very angry about the tone of his voice and how he said it", Johnson said. He couldn't even remember my husband's name.

Mr Trump last week accused Ms Wilson of fabricating what he said during the call, tweeting that he had "proof" that this was the case.

In the days that followed, both Trump and Kelly publicly attacked the congresswoman, with Trump tweeting that Wilson's recounting of the call was "a total lie" and Kelly incorrectly accusing Wilson of bragging about her role in securing funding for the Federal Bureau of Investigation office that was dedicated in 2015.

Johnson's other sister, Angie Ghent, said after the funeral service, that his reputation for being the "Wheelie King" is what she will hold on to.

Would you like to have an apology from John Kelly?

Trump also called Wilson's claim Kelly made the remarks about her to keep his job "sickening". But Johnson backed up Rep. Wilson's version of events. A Trump spokeswoman said it was "inappropriate" to question Kelly in light of his stature as a retired four-star general.

Last week, Trump's chief of staff said he was "stunned" and "broken-hearted" by the criticism of the president's phone call. "I know my husband's body from head to toe".

"I need to see him so I will know that that is my husband. I don't know what's in that box", she said.

She said she was present during the call and stood by Ms Wilson's account of what was said. "It could be empty for all I know".
