President Donald Trump tweeted Wednesday morning that he never told the widow of U.S. Army Sgt. La David Johnson that the soldier "knew what he signed up for ... but when it happens, it hurts anyway."
Johnson, a 25-year-old father of two from Miami Gardens, was killed Oct. 4 while fighting in Niger.
Florida Democratic Rep. Frederica Wilson told reporters that she overheard Trump make the comment while speaking to Johnson's widow, Myeisha Johnson, during a telephone conversation.
"So insensitive," Wilson said, continuing "He should have not have said that. He shouldn't have said it."
