Gold Star Widow Releases Trump’s Call After Husband Was Killed In Afghanistan
Gold star widow Natasha De Alencar, widow of Army Sgt. La David T. Johnson, released the audio of a phone conversation she had with President Donald Trump in April about the death of her husband who was killed in Afghanistan on April 8 . De Alencar was killed during a firefight with Islamic State fighters in eastern Afghanistan. Five days after he died, U.S. forces dropped a 22,000-pound explosive — nicknamed “the mother of all bombs” — near where De Alencar was shot. Since then, two more American soldiers have been killed fighting the Islamic State in the same area. He was a member of the 7th Special Forces Group.
He left behind five children — Deshaune, 20, Octavia, 18, Rodrigo, 16, Tatiyana, 13, and Marcos, 5 — and his wife of 15 years.
“I am so sorry to hear about the whole situation. What a horrible thing, except that he’s an unbelievable hero,” Trump told her in the call about her husband Army Staff Sgt. Mark R. De Alencar, which The Washington Post released.
“Thank you. I really, really appreciated it,” she said. “I really do, sir.”
Later in the call, Trump invited De Alencar to the White House, telling her, “If you’re around Washington, you come over and see me in the Oval Office,” before asking about her oldest son, Deshaun, who is playing college football at Missouri Valley College in Marshall, Mo.
The phone call was released after White House Chief of Staff Gen. John Kelly pushed back against Florida Democratic Rep. Frederica Wilson’s criticism that Trump told a Gold Star widow “he knew what he signed up for.”

Tearjerker: Gold Star Widow releases uplifting video of Trump’s call after her husband was killed in Afghanistan

Referring to Gen Kelly scathing response to her allegations, “That’s a racist term, too. I’m thinking about that one. We looked it up in the dictionary because I had never heard of an empty barrel. And I don’t like to be dragged into something like that,” Wilson said Friday on CNN’s “New Day.” “The only thing I want to be dragged into right now is getting back our girls who are the victims of Boko Haram in Nigeria.”
Kelly said the term was meant to be metaphorical, to represent someone who “makes the most noise,” but Wilson took it as racially demeaning.
“You mean to tell me that I’ve become so important…that the White House is following me and my words? This is amazing. That’s amazing. That is absolutely phenomenal. I’ll have to tell my kids that I’m a rock star now,” Wilson told Miami Fox affiliate WSVN-TV, while laughing as reported by Daily Caller.
The DailyWire reported: After she issued a scathing and inappropriate reply to White House Chief of Staff Gen. John Kelly Thursday afternoon, Rep. Frederica Wilson’s staff says she will no longer be speaking publicly about President Donald Trump’s condolence call to a Gold Star widow.
Planned Parenthood is defending Rep. Frederica Wilson’s (D-FL) claim that White House Chief of Staff John Kelly’s use of the term “empty barrel” is racist.
On Thursday, Kelly lectured Wilson for eavesdropping on and politicizing President Donald Trump’s phone call to the widow of a soldier slain in Niger.
“It stuns me that a member of Congress would have listened in on the conversation – absolutely stuns me,” Kelly said, “And I thought at least that was sacred.” as reported by Breitbart.
