Rep. Frederica Wilson fired back at Donald Trump after the president called her a “wacky Congresswoman.” The Florida-based politician called the Niger ambush his “Benghazi,” another contentious issue involving the military that haunted the previous administration.

In a tweet sent out to her followers, Rep. Frederica Wilson urged Donald Trump to “own it,” as he seemingly downplayed the significance of the Niger ambush that left four American military servicemen dead.

Trump’s beef with Rep. Frederica Wilson

Donald Trump and Rep. Frederica Wilson have been throwing words at each other since Wilson revealed what the president told the widow of one of the soldiers that were slain in Niger.

When the president made the condolence call to Myeshia Johnson, the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson, Rep. Frederica Wilson was present in the car with her. This was because she was close to the family of Sgt. Johnson.

Wilson claimed that Donald Trump told Myeshia that Sgt. Johnson “knew what he signed up for, but I guess it still hurts.” This was supported by another family member who was in the same car. The revelation caused outrage to the public, with people demanding for Trump [VIDEO]to apologize.

Donald Trump, however, claims innocence. While the White House has not refuted it outright, he insists that the call was “very nice.”

Her comparison of the Niger ambush with Benghazi has been met with mixed responses. Benghazi is still a sensitive topic for both parties. It started inquiries about the attack that lasted for years and became one of the biggest issues thrown at Hillary Clinton, who was heading the State Department at the time.

Congressional Black Caucus makes a stand

She also expressed her disappointment in White House chief of staff Gen. John Kelly. Kelly defended the president’s response to the controversy, which did not sit well with Wilson. He also thought it was inappropriate that Wilson was listening in to the call made by the president.

She called Kelly “a puppet of the president,” blasting him for making false claims to defend Trump [VIDEO]and to destroy her character. She has demanded that Kelly not only apologize to her but also to the entire country.

For their part, the women of the Congressional Black Caucus, which includes Barbara Lee (D-California) and Maxine Waters (D-California), have issued their own statement, urging Kelly to correct the false claims he made.
