Dem Rep. Frederica Wilson: "Insensitive" Trump Told Soldier's Widow He "Knew What He Signed Up For"
TRUMP: Didn't say what that congresswoman said. Didn't say it at all. She knows it, and she now is not saying it. I did not say what she said. And I'd like her to make the statement again, because I did not say what she said.

TRUMP: Let -- let her make her statement again, and then you'll find out.
TRUMP: OK, let her make her statement again, and then you'll find out.
