A Conversation Around Our Fallen Soldiers

President Donald Trump’s response to a question in regards to four U.S. soldiers’ deaths in Niger during Monday’s press conference in the Rose Garden is sparking outrage. The President’s condolence call to one of the soldier’s widow ignited a firestorm of controversy after Democratic Representative Frederica Wilson (D-Fla) argued Trump told Sgt. La David Johnson’s widow that her husband “knew what he signed up for.” Trump disputed these claims and accused the congresswoman of fabricating the story. Our guests react to this controversy, explain traditions surrounding how we honor our fallen soldiers and what happens to them and their families once they’ve lost their lives in service.
