'He Was Wrong': Reporter Confronts Sanders on Gen. Kelly's Criticism of Wilson

Congresswoman Accuses Kelly of Lying, Escalating Dispute Over Trump's ...

Some never heard from him at all, and a few who did came away more upset.

Kelly said Trump asked him what he should say.

In his remarks before the White House press corps on Thursday, Kelly said he encouraged the president to say something similar because it highlighted to his widow, Myesha, Sgt. Johnson's selfless sacrifice. "Because it's not the phone call that parents, family members are looking forward to".

Wilson said she believed Trump had been insensitive during the call and the woman who raised Johnson as a child, Cowanda Jones-Johnson, backed up Wilson's account and said she believed Trump had been disrespectful. When a reporter asked Sanders Friday why Trump tweeted about Wilson again, the press secretary criticized reporters for continuing to talk about this story.

The White House confirmed on Friday that US President Donald Trump will not visit the United Kingdom until 2018 at the earliest, and left open the subject of whether he would be invited to meet the queen.

Others waited for calls that did not come. She offered her disgust towards Wilson's campaign of using the death of a fallen soldier via Trump's phone call for politics.

Capt. Ben Cross of Bethel was one of three Marines killed in the crash in August off the coast of Australia. "We don't look down upon those of you who haven't served", he said. In defending Trump's comments to the widow of Sgt.

Ms Huckabee Sanders said Mr Trump has reached out to every family that has been authorised by the military office.

Fallen soldiers, Kelly said, join "the best one per cent this country produces". He didn't have to say nothing else. So did several other families who lost loved ones in uniform. Traditionally, presidents choose civilians for that position.

Many parliamentary voices in the United Kingdom do not want the USA president to make any sort of visit. Still, Trump this week used his calls as evidence of his support for the military, suggesting he did more to honor the families than his predecessors did. "It didn't really play that well, I don't think".

Trump spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders repeated the claim Wednesday, saying the president "has made contact with all of the families that have been presented to him through the White House Military Office". "She said, 'The dog can bark at the moon all night long, but it doesn't become an issue until the moon barks back'". "That's what the president tried to say to these families".

That process appears to have broken down. Wilson said. "Think about what they should be doing".

Following Trump's inauguration as the 45th USA president, UK Prime Minister Theresa May invited him to travel to the island nation during her state visit to Washington DC in late January.

In his claims, Trump made no distinction between combat and noncombat deaths. "I don't believe all presidents call". Such a task would have to be accomplished via legislation, which can take months.

Earlier, White House statements indicated that Trump would make either a "working" visit or a "state" visit, but allowed that the former would take place without a meeting with Queen Elizabeth II, the longest-reigning monarch in British history, according to the Guardian.

Relatives of two soldiers also confirmed they did not get letters. La David Johnson after she put the call on speakerphone. But Sheila Murphy did after her son, Army Spc.

Given the circumstances, I thought it was likely Kelly would apologize. "But my son was in Syria". In my case, hours after my son was killed, his friends were calling us from Afghanistan telling us what a great guy he was. "But it didn't", she said.
