     Our president Donald Trump has been facing some denunciation (whats new) for his calls made to families of Army soldiers killed in the Niger ambush. Rep. Frederica Wilson of Florida was in a vehicle carrying one of the fallen soldiers wives and claimed Mr. Trump was inappropriate during the phone call. Wilson claimed she had overheard a portion of the call while it was broadcasted on speakerphone, and then decided she should circulate her opinion of the conversation. It's almost sad how excited she is about the attention she's getting on behalf of the personal losses of others. According to her, she's "a rockstar."

      Now the widow of a staff sergeant killed in Afghanistan early in the year has come out and released a recording of her own phone call with the prisident. Needless to say, it tells a different story. 

“At that moment when my world was upside down and me and my kids didn’t know which way we were going, it felt like I was talking to just another regular human,” she told The Washington Post.

      Trump even goes as far as inviting her to the oval office, and talking about Mizzou football (the college program her son plays for). Trump claimed he has called nearly every Gold star family since taking office, and even went as far as to criticize former leaders for not doing the same. With all that said, there's no denying Trump's sincerity in the linked video, and certainly creates more questions for Frederica Wilson.
