Democrat Florida Rep. Frederica Wilson released a statement recently, speaking against president Trump once more. However, former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly noted that all liberal media outlets have been making up stories in efforts to undermine the POTUS.
As per Wilson, mani mainstream outlets learned that Trump behaved inappropriately towards a widow of a fallen soldier in who got killed in Niger. As she informed everyone Trump told the mourning lady that her husband “knew what he signed up for, but I guess it still hurt.”
Reports suggested that Staff Sgt. Bryan Black, Staff Sgt. Jeremiah Johnson, Staff Sgt. Dustin Wright and Sgt. La David Johnson were all gunned down whereas two others were injured. The attack was conducted by ISIS soldiers.
Wilson stated to have overheard Trump speaking to the widow over the phone, whose husband, La David Johnson, was taken out in the mission.
Still, Bill O’Reilly proclaimed that the story was nothing short of a sham, and the liberal media are always looking forward to having something to bash Trump about.
O’Reilly explained how the media take Wilson’s story as it is, without suspecting its validity to begin with. He also told everyone there was no viable proof the story was truthful.
“I don’t know what was said, and neither does any other member of the press. But this whole thing has the look of a setup, does it not?” he asked.

President Trump dismissed the claims, stating they’re false, and added he has proof of the phone call that actually went down.
“Democrat Congresswoman totally fabricated what I said to the wife of a soldier who died in action (and I have proof). Sad!” Trump said.

Following Trump’s tweet, Wilson spoke to CNN host Alisyn Camerota and stood by everything she said.
“I have proof, too,” Wilson said. “This man is a sick man.”

In addition, she mentioned that Johnson’s widow fell apart after speaking to Trump, complaining the President spoke of her husband but “didn’t even know his name.”
“I have no reason to lie (to) the President of the United States with a dead soldier in my community. I have no time, I have no motive,” she added, as reported by The Hill, explaining that she was the elementary school principal of Johnson’s father and knew the family.
However, it wasn’t long after that Wilson confirmed she “didn’t hear the entire conversation.”
When asked about what she meant with it, Wilson noted she “just can’t remember everything that he (Trump) said. But that stood out in everyone’s heart on the call. You don’t say that.”
