WATCH: Trump Brags His Memory Is Better Than Gold Star Widow, Won’t Apologize
During a brief interaction with reporters, President Donald Trump on Wednesday insisted that Myeshia Johnson, the widow of slain U.S. Army Sgt. La David Johnson, was wrong about the now-infamous phone call they shared last week and then boasted his “great memory.”
Trump was asked he’d apologize to Johnson for causing her additional emotional pain, but the president completely dodged the question and quickly pivoted to how nice he had been to her during their call.
“She sounds like a lovely lady, I’ve never seen her, I’ve never met her,” the president explained. “I was extremely nice to her, I was extremely courteous as I was to everyone else.”
When pressed by a reporter about Johnson’s account of the exchange — which differed completely from Trump’s — the president boasted about the high quality of his memory.
“One of the great memories of all time,” Trump insisted.
Prior to his comment, Trump declared that “his generals and his military” are looking into the incident that left 4 soldiers dead in Niger.
