The fallen American soldier who wore the name of his wife and mother of his two children, Myeshia Johnson, tattooed across his chest under his U.S. Army uniform, was saluted with a ceremonial homecoming at Miami International Airport. Her pregnant belly was shaking against the casket as she sobbed uncontrollably. Their toddler waited in the arms of a relative. Also present was an Honor Guard and local politicians. His group was ambushed by 50 Islamic militants using rocket propelled grenades and machine guns.

When a reporter asked why it took Trump 12 days to acknowledge the death of the four US fighters on Monday, he said he wrote letters and planned to call the families "at some point". "But when it happens it hurts anyway".

Johnson's body was not recovered for 48 hours after he died.

Eric Holder, the former Attorney General under President Obama, tweeted a sharp rebuke, telling Trump, "Stop the damn lying - you're the President".

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks by phone with Russia's President Vladimir Putin in the Oval Office at the White House in Washington, U.S. January 28, 2017.

Earlier this week, he told reporters that "I think I've called every family of someone who's died", though that claim was disputed by the Associated Press. On Monday, Trump said he'd written letters that hadn't yet been mailed; his aides they had been awaiting information on the soldiers before proceeding. La David Johnson hugs the casket carrying his remains. There will be a public viewing from 4 to 8 p.m., Friday, and a funeral service from 11 a.m.to 1 p.m., Saturday, at the Christ The Rock Church, 11000 Stirling Rd., in Cooper City. Johnson will be buried at Hollywood Memorial Gardens.

The other three victims of the attack were Staff Sgt. Bryan C. Black, 35, of Puyallup, Wash.; Staff Sgt. Jeremiah W. Johnson, 39, of Springboro, Ohio, and Staff Sgt. Dustin M. Wright, 29, of Lyons, Ga., according to officials with the Department of Defense.
