The pregnant widow of U.S. Army Sgt. La David T. Johnson has nothing to say to Donald Trump — but she has plenty to say about his insensitivity.

Myeshia Johnson is speaking out about the controversial condolence call she received from POTUS en route to retrieve her husband's body, and admitted that hearing from Trump only made her feel worse.

The phone call has been the center of controversy ever since Congresswoman Frederica Wilson, who was in the car with the family at the time, claimed Trump said the slain soldier "knew what he signed up for, but when it happens it hurts anyway."

Not only did Johnson confirm Wilson's account, she claimed the president struggled to even remember her late husband's name.

Speaking on Good Morning America, the Gold Star widow admitted Trump's remarks made her cry — angered not necessarily by what he said, but by "the tone of his voice and how he said it."

After unequivocally backing up Wilson's account, Johnson revealed the part of the call that hurt the most:

"I heard [Trump] stumbling on trying to remember my husband's name and that's what hurt me the most because if my husband is out here fighting for our country and he risked his life for our country, why can't you remember his name?"

As he's been doing each time a witness confirms Wilson's account, Trump has already disputed the pregnant widow's version of events. Within an hour of the interview airing on ABC, he shared on Twitter:

How's this for proof? No, really, we don't even know anymore…

Not long after Donald Trump denied ever telling a slain soldier's widow that her husband "knew what he signed up for," the deceased soldier's mother is saying otherwise.

Cowanda Jones-Johnson, the mother of Sgt. La David Johnson, confirmed Rep. Frederica Wilson's account that the president disrespected the U.S. soldier and his family in a phone call.

The grieving mother, whose son was killed in an ambush two weeks ago, told The Washington Post that "President Trump did disrespect my son and my daughter and also me and my husband" on Wednesday.

Jones-Johnson says she was in the car when POTUS called her daughter-in-law, Myeshia Johnson, to offer his condolences and overheard the 5-minute conversation on speakerphone.

The soldier's mother declined to elaborate on what was actually said, but corroborated Wilson's account of the conversation.

As expected, POTUS continues to huff and puff over the controversy. On Wednesday, he told White House press that he "didn't say what that congresswoman said" — all while crossing his arms like a constipated man-baby:

Donald Trump sends his condolences… and a friendly reminder that your husband signed his own death certificate by joining the military.

This week, a Democratic U.S. congresswoman claimed that the president told a grieving widow of a U.S. soldier recently killed in an ambush that "he knew what he signed up for."

U.S. Rep Frederica Wilson told the Miami Herald that Trump called up Myeshia Johnson on Tuesday and said her husband Sgt. La David T. Johnson, who perished two weeks ago, "knew what he signed up for… but when it happens it hurts anyway."

Johnson was traveling to Miami International Airport to retrieve her husband's body, which was just arriving from overseas, when POTUS called her for a 5-minute chat.

Wilson was accompanying the family when she overheard the blunt conversation — and was "livid" by how insensitively Trump handled the situation. She told reporters:
