Trump denies the accusation, tweeting Wednesday morning: "Democrat Congresswoman totally fabricated what I said to the wife of a soldier who died in action (and I have proof)".

Miss Wilson said that she was in the auto on the way to Miami airport to meet her husband's coffin when Mrs Johnson received the five minute call from the President.

His remarks were recounted by Democrat Representative Frederica Wilson who said that Mr Trump was must have a "brain disorder". "To me that is something that you can say in a conversation, but you shouldn't say that to a grieving widow", Wilson told WPLG in Miami.

But Sergeant Johnson's mother, Cowanda Jones-Johnson, told The Washington Post she was present during Mr Trump's call and supported the congresswoman's account of Mr Trump's comment.

The White House had said Tuesday that Trump placed calls Tuesday to the families of all four service members killed in Niger on October 4.

Former Obama administration staff and Cabinet members were swift in their reactions, with former Deputy Chief of Staff Alyssa Mastromonaco calling him a "f***ing liar" on Twitter.

"Mr. President, you crossed the line there", Holder said on CNN's "The Lead with Jake Tapper".

At the airport, widow Myeshia Johnson leaned in grief across the flag-draped coffin after a military guard received it.

Nemanja Radonjic was found at the back post and his volley was well saved by Petr Cech before Reiss Nelson blocked the rebound. Theo Walcott had two early chances as Arsenal dominated in the early periods of the game but he was unable to convert them.

A White House spokeswoman said the media was advancing a "biased agenda" by following up on the Baldridge story. To make matters even worse, the president accused a congresswoman of lying about a reportedly crass phone call he made to the widow of one of the four Green Berets killed in Niger - even though the soldier's mother confirmed the account.

The president's response shocked him.

"He said, "I'm going to write you a cheque out of my personal account for $25,000", and I was just floored", Mr Baldridge said. But you don't remind a grieving widow of that.

The calls followed Trump's claims Monday and Tuesday that his Democratic predecessor, President Barack Obama, had not often made such calls to families. Advocates expressed weariness at yet another dead soldier's family being drawn into a political fight, and said they refused to be drawn into the increasingly heated debate.

Democratic senator Tammy Duckworth, an Iraq veteran who lost both legs when her helicopter was attacked, said: "I just wish that this commander in chief would stop using Gold Star families as pawns in whatever sick game he's trying to play here".

Sanders said Obama did not call Kelly but it was not clear if some other form of contact was made.

He invoked the death of Kelly's son in his defense Tuesday, suggesting that reporters ask the retired four-star general whether Obama reached out to him when his son died serving the country.

Mr Kelly was the highest-ranking military official to lose a child in the Iraq or Afghanistan wars.
