One of the biggest stories of the last 24 hours involves Donald Trump and the alleged remarks he made to a widow of one of the soldiers killed earlier this month in Niger. After receiving criticism, the White House decided to push back, including comments made by Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

Sanders on Trump

Earlier this month in Niger, Africa, four Green Berets were killed during an ambush in the region. The story passed through the news cycle and didn't get much mention from the White House, as Donald Trump was spending more time lashing out at NFL players for protesting the national anthem, defending his response to the hurricane in Puerto Rico, while also taking part in reported feuds with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Republican Sen.

La David Johnson's body was flown into Miami International Airport, where his casket was met by his pregnant widow Myeshia Johnson, along with their two young child. Following her greeting of the casket, Johnson received a phone call from the president, who reportedly upset the widow by saying Johnson "knew what he was signing up for." The story was confirmed by Florida Rep. Frederica Wilson, though Trump has since lashed out on Twitter to defend himself. In a tweet on Wednesday morning, Trump called out Wilson, while noting that he has "proof" that she is not being accurate. As reported by NBC News on October 18, Sarah Huckabee Sanders attempted to defend the president and offer clarification.

While addressing reporters at the White House on Wednesday afternoon, Sarah Huckabee Sanders was questioned on Donald Trump's phone call with Myeshia Johnson, including the details of the alleged "proof" that the president has to back up his denial.

"There were several people in the room from the administration that were on the call, including Chief of Staff General John Kelly," Sanders said.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders was then asked if Donald Trump made the comment "he knew what he signed up for" to Myeshia Johnson, as she did her best to deflect.

"The president's call, as accounted by multiple people in the room, believe that the president was completely respectful, very sympathetic," she said. "There is never going to be enough that a president can do for the families of those that are killed in action," Sanders went on to say.

On the attack

Not stopping there, Sarah Huckabee Sanders called out and attack Frederica Wilson for the allegations she made against the billionaire real estate mogul. "I think it is appalling what the congresswoman has done and the way that she has politicized this issue," she stated.

Twitter reacts

As Sarah Huckabee Sanders gave her defense of Donald Trump, those who oppose the current administration fired back on Twitter.

"So they’re calling the mother a liar on top of her having to deal with losing her son- horrible people," one tweet read.

"This woman looks like she hates her life..." another tweet noted. "(SHS) peddles lies and hate for a subhuman buffoon," one Twitter user wrote.

"Is (SHS) in a secret competition for Best Liar of all time? Unclear. But likely," yet another tweet added. The backlash continued as the critics of Donald Trump piled on the president and held his feet to the fire.
