La David Johnson, one of the four U.S. Army soldiers killed in an ambush attack in Niger, gathered on Saturday at Christ the Rock Church in Cooper City to say their final farewells to the young man they consider a hero.
Wilson, who is close to Johnson's family and was in the auto when Trump's call came, claimed that Trump said Johnson "knew what he signed up for, but I guess it still hurts".
Sgt. La David Johnson and three comrades died October 4 in Africa when militants tied to the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria attacked them.
The phone call first sparked controversy last week as Democrat congresswoman Frederica Wilson claimed Mr Trump told Sgt Johnson's widow that the soldier "knew what he signed up for". "It made me cry because I was very angry at the tone of his voice and how he said it", she said.
Wilson and Trump have traded barbs for almost a week on the controversy stemming from the President's condolence call to Johnson.
Fact-checking website Snopes also noted that the post is "dated" October 17 at 3:27 p.m., about an hour before the reported time of Trump's call to Johnson. "Why couldn't I see my husband?"
"That is something that you can say in a conversation, but you shouldn't say that to a grieving widow", she said.
She said it took them 48 hours to find her husband and she still hasn't been allowed to see the body.
Trump and the White House have gone after Rep. Wilson's character for several days. "I had a very nice conversation". Wilson was riding with Johnson's family to meet the body and heard the call on speakerphone.
"He was so offended that a woman would be - that somebody would be listening to that call", Trump continued.
Trump tweeted that Wilson "fabricated" his statement and the fight escalated through the week. "I don't know what's in that box. Why would we fabricate something like that?" "It could be empty for all I know". "The only way he remembered my husband's name because he told me he had my husband's report in front of him and that's when he actually said La David". And Johnson said her uncle-in-law was Wilson's elementary school principal.
Trump aides have stood by Mr Kelly's contention that Ms Wilson had boasted about her role in winning funding for a federal building, even after video of her remarks emerged, showing he was wrong.
