The controversy over how Trump has conducted one of the most sacred of presidential tasks generated new turmoil in the White House. She pushed back on reporters questions about Kelly's comments on Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.). La David Johnson, who gave his life for his country. Trump, remember, claimed Wilson "totally fabricated" what he supposedly said to Mrs. Johnson.
Sanders also attempted to shift the debate away from Kelly's inaccuracies to instead focus on his personal integrity. Rep Wilson said she was in the vehicle when the president's call came through and heard the conversation on a speakerphone.
Pressed on the matter during Friday's press briefing, Sanders said Kelly was "stunned that Rep. Wilson made comments at a building dedication honoring slain Federal Bureau of Investigation agents about her own actions in Congress, including lobbying former President Obama on legislation". I guess she was just supposed to suck it up and thank Trump for the awkward attempt.
"I can only imagine the pain his family is feeling right now", said Vietnam veteran L. C. Deal, who wore a black hat embossed with "Vietnam Veteran" and an olive green dress military jacket. This is really not, ' " the president said. And I would think that every one of them appreciated it. He had graduated from her "Role Models of Excellence" program so she knew him and his family. Trump said on Fox News radio. Trump later defended his claim by publicly disclosing that President Barack Obama had not called Kelly after his son, Robert, was killed in Afghanistan.
Later, Tapper noted Trump previously insisted he never made those remarks in the first place. Wilson suggested that it was the White House, and not her, that was adding to a grieving family's anguish.
Kelly criticized Wilson for describing a conversation she heard between Trump and the widow of a soldier killed in Niger.
"She has just lost her husband". But she does work for the Trump reelection campaign. Trump wrote on Twitter.
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders calls on a member of the media during the daily briefing in the Brady Press Briefing Room of the White House, Friday, Oct. 20, 2017. La David Johnson's public viewing, loved ones and strangers cried, prayed and hugged each other.
"A military dictatorship- that appears to be what the White House thinks the United States is". "You could ask General Kelly, did he get a call from Obama?" "But it didn't. It's still the bulk of the coverage on most every TV you turn on and most every newspaper that you open up today".
Former Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, who led the Pentagon for a portion of the time Kelly served as commander of U.S. Southern Command, was bitterly critical of Trump's comments.
During a series of interviews Friday, Wilson accused Kelly of lying about her.
The reporter pointed out that Kelly's statement Thursday was misleading: Wilson didn't discuss the building's funding in her speech in 2015. Two other soldiers were injured in the attack, and almost 10 Nigerien troops were also killed. "To use General Kelly and his family in this disgusting political way is sickening and beneath every shred of decency of presidential leadership".
