Earlier this month, four United States soldiers were killed during an ambush in Niger, Africa. After receiving criticism, Donald Trump took a few minutes to call the pregnant widow of one of the soldiers, but made comments that didn't go over well [VIDEO] with some people.

Trump on Niger attack

When Donald Trump first announced his plans to run for president [VIDEO], he had a few talking points in mind. One issue that the former host of "The Apprentice" focused on was his alleged love and respect for the United States Military, including soldiers past and present. Trump took a hard-line approach with the issue, pandering to the military to the point that he avoid a confrontation with then debate moderator Megyn Kelly and hosted a fundraiser for veterans instead.

Since his election, the president has continued to claim that he will be the best commander in chief when it comes to treating the military well, but faced backlash due to his slow response to the soldiers killed in Niger two weeks ago. According to the New York Daily News on October 18, Trump called one of the widows, but made comments that left her in tears.

U.S. Army Sgt. La David Johnson was one of four Green Berets killed during a surprise attack on the group. He is survived by his wife Myeshia Johnson, as well as his two children, two and six years of age. On Tuesday morning, Myeshia greeted her husband's casket at the Miami International Airport, then received a phone call from Donald Trump just hours later.

According to reports, which were then confirmed by Florida Rep.

Frederica Wilson, Donald Trump told Myeshia Johnson that "he (David) knew what he signed up for" before adding "but when it happens it hurts anyway." "It’s so insensitive," Wilson said while speaking to ABC News. Wilson later took to Twitter to label Sgt. Johnson a "hero," while saying Trump "does not possess the character, empathy or grace to be president of the United States."

Double down

During an interview with CNN on Tuesday night, Frederica Wilson elaborated on the situation, detailing her time with Myeshia Johnson in the car leaving the airport. "She's very distraught,” Wilson said. "I was going to curse him out. That was my reaction at that time," she said of Trump, while adding that the widow was left crying and in tears because of his comments. As of press time, neither the White House nor the president himself have responded to the story, though it's expected that Donald Trump will comment on the allegations at some point in the near future.
