"I said.we're gonna get this done", Wilson is shown saying on the tape, before explaining how she, with the help of then-House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, and her state's two senators, Marco Rubio, a Republican, and Bill Nelson, a Democrat, maneuvered to have the legislation passed and signed into law in a matter of weeks. "He knew he was getting into by joining that one per cent". Wilson said. "Think about what they should be doing".

He started by describing the reverent handling of America's war dead, bodies packed in ice and shipped home in the dark to an Air Force base in Delaware. And if there is a wife this is happening in two different places, if the parents are divorced, three different places. La David Johnson. Trump looked to Kelly for advice and it sounded as if he attempted to share the same type of words that Kelly found appropriate when he was in the shoes of this Gold Star family.

Despite Mr Trump's boast that he calls all or almost all military families when they lose a loved one, relatives of at least a half dozen people who died in military service since he became President have said they never got a call from him about their loss.

For the White House to suggest the president's chief of staff shouldn't be subjected to scrutiny, even after he made a public claim that's been disproven, is tough to defend. "When I took this job and talked to President Trump about how to do it, my first recommendation was he not do it", Kelly said.

Kelly said it was the phone call from his son's military buddies telling him what a great guy he was that he held the closest. In response, Kelly told him what General Joseph Dunford, now chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told him when Robert Kelly was killed.

Trump tweeted his comment about Wilson's claim on Thursday and that is the last he has said about it. "He knew what the possibilities were", Kelly said he was told. "That's what the president tried to say to these families".

In his remarks before the White House press corps on Thursday, Kelly said he encouraged the president to say something similar because it highlighted to his widow, Myesha, Sgt. Johnson's selfless sacrifice. Kelly, after all, entered the White House as part of a contingent of sober grown-ups, and reportedly felt duty-bound to restrain Trump when he supplanted Reince Priebus as chief of staff. Hopes rose that Kelly's military discipline and love of country would keep the president in line.

"When I listened to this woman and what she was saying and what she was doing on TV, the only thing I could do to collect my thoughts was to go and walk among the finest men and women on this Earth". At Thursday's press briefing, Kelly asked journalists if any of them knew anyone who had died serving in combat.
