'He Was Wrong': Reporter Confronts Sanders on Gen. Kelly's Criticism of Wilson

CNN's Jake Tapper: Kelly 'laying rhetorical body blows' and 'insulting' Rep Wilson with his remarks

CNN's Jake Tapper: Kelly 'laying rhetorical body blows' and 'insulting' Rep Wilson with his remarks

On Thursday, Kelly said he had advised Trump against making the calls to the fallen soldiers' families, but that the president eventually chose to express his condolences "in the best way that he could".

And while Trump got on Twitter on Wednesday and accused Wilson of fabricating what he said, at no point did Kelly refute her version of the events. "President Trump did disrespect my son and my daughter and also me and my husband", Cowanda Jones-Johnson said.

"I feel very sorry for him because he feels such a need to lie on me and I'm not even his enemy", Wilson told the newspaper.

"That's what the president tried to say to the four families the other day", Kelly said, adding there is "no ideal way to make that phone call".

The biggest takeaway from the briefing was Kelly using his time to attack Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.), who has been especially critical of Donald Trump for the remarks he made to Myeshia Johnson, the pregnant widow of U.S. Army Sgt.

Johnson and three other USA special forces were killed by Islamic State-linked militants earlier this month in an incident near the Niger-Mali border that has raised questions about the quality of US intelligence. He knew what he was getting into by joining that one percent.

The Palace rescheduled the royal tour with a two-day visit of Prince William alone in Finland in late November. On Tuesday, Kensington Palace announced that the royal couple expect their third child in April.

"Democrat Congresswoman totally fabricated what I said to the wife of a soldier who died in action (and I have proof)".

"President Trump, two days ago, said that he never said that".

"It stuns me that a member of Congress would have listened in on that conversation". In response, Kelly told him what General Joseph Dunford, now chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told him when Robert Kelly was killed.

"I was stunned when I came to work yesterday morning and brokenhearted at what I saw a member of Congress doing", Kelly said. "He knew what the possibilities were". The president has repeatedly denied he made such a comment.

Islamic militants on motorcycles brought rocket-propelled grenades and heavy machine guns, killing the four and wounding others after shattering the windows of unarmored US trucks.

In addition, both Trump and Kelly implied nefarious motives by Wilson in listening to that call - "SECRETLY", as Trump put it in a tweet. But a video of her remarks at the dedication shows she never took credit for getting the government to come up with the money for the project. Somehow, she perceived part of his speech as being "racist". Grogan nearly retired, 53 years old; Duke, I think less than a year on the job. But in doing so General Kelly, a respected retired Marine Corps general, admitted without question that his boss had lied to the press. "There were other people who heard what I heard".
