One widow of a fallen soldier is praising President Trump for his kindness. In order to show America how kind President Trump was, she released a revealing private phone conversation.

Widow Natasha De Alencar's husband was killed in Afghanistan. She released audio of her own call with Trump in the middle of a heated public controversy over how the president deals with these sorts of situations. 

“It was a moment of niceness that we needed because we were going through hell,” she said, according to the Washington Post.

The call primarily centered around her husband, Army Staff Sgt Mark De Alencar, who was praised for his heroism and successful family. The audio was about four minutes long and was recorded by one of the widow's four children. 

"I’m so sorry to hear about the whole situation. What a horrible thing," said Trump.  

“He’s an unbelievable hero and you know all the people that served with him are saying how incredible he was.”

In the phone call, Trump showed a genuine interest in the fallen soldier's family. He spoke with the widow about her son's football career. In particular, Trump praised her oldest son, 20-year-old Deshaun, who plays college football at Missouri Valley College. Trump was impressed that the young man received an academic scholarship rather than an athletic one. 

In the midst of this phone call, one widow of a fallen soldier claimed that she was very angry with Donald Trump. In particular, the pregnant widow of U.S. Army Sgt. La David Johnson, who was among four U.S. service members killed in Niger earlier this month, expressed blame and sorrow toward Donald Trump. 

"I heard him 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," said Johnson, according to ABC News.

"That’s what made me upset and cry even more because my husband was an awesome soldier."

Trump denied the accusation that he couldn't remember her husband's name, writing on Twitter that he spoke his name "from the beginning, without hesitation!"

But there is no evidence that Trump could not remember his fallen soldier's name. But in the case of Natasha De Alencar, there is clear video evidence of Trump's real and genuine phone call. 

De Alencar spoke out as Trump continues to fend off criticism, especially from Democratic Representative Frederica Wilson. Moreover, De Alencar is a Democratic herself, and didn't vote for Trump to be President of the United States, but felt like Trump understood what she was going through because he is also a parent.
