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."

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?"
