But Wilson shot back on CNN that “the president evidently is lying, because what I said is true.” Wilson said she and others in the car with Johnson heard Trump on a speakerphone.
"This gentleman has a brain disorder, and he needs to be checked out," Wilson told CNN.
Sgt. La David Johnson of Miami Gardens, Fla., was among four servicemen killed in the African nation of Niger earlier this month. They died when militants thought to be affiliated with the Islamic State group ambushed them while they were patrolling in unarmored trucks with Nigerien troops.
Wilson later tweeted Wednesday that she was not the only person who heard Trump's "insensitive remarks" and continued to stand by her account.
I stand my account of the call with @realDonaldTrump and was not the only one who heard and was dismayed by his insensitive remarks.
