The commander-in-chief reportedly handled his call to Myeshia Johnson, the pregnant and grieving widow of U.S. Army Sgt.

"It's so insensitive. He should have not have said that". Johnson is also survived by a 2-year-old son and 6-year-old daughter. Their toddler waited in the arms of a relative.

Sgt. Johnson, 25, was a former Walmart employee who became a member of the 3rd Special Forces Group at Fort Bragg, North Carolina.

Johnson, who participated in a mentorship program Wilson founded in 1993, died during a mission fighting alongside Green Berets.

When a reporter asked why it took Trump 12 days to acknowledge the death of the four USA fighters on Monday, he said he wrote letters and planned to call the families "at some point".

According to Wilson, Trump later added, "But when it happens it hurts anyway".

"I'm livid. He can't even have an open-coffin funeral because his body is so messed up, " Wilson told the Miami Herald. Other presidents did not call. All I can do - all I can do is ask my generals. "They'd write letters. And some presidents didn't do anything", Trump said.

A White House official told NBC: "The President's conversations with the families of American heroes who have made the ultimate sacrifice are private".

After an emotional procession from Miami-Dade to Broward County, Johnson's remains were at a funeral home in Hollywood. Johnson will be buried at Hollywood Memorial Gardens.

Also killed in action on October 4th were Staff Sargeant Dustin Wright, Sargeant Bryan Black, Staff Sargeant Jeremiah Johnson, and four soldiers from Niger, according to the New York Daily News.
