Donald Trump Jr. Slams Rep. Frederica Wilson As "Disgusting" Person

Donald Trump Jr. slammed Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.) for bragging that she's a "rock star" after the controversy about President Donald Trump's condolence call to a military widow.

Wilson claimed on Tuesday that Trump told the widow of Army Sgt. La David Johnson during a phone call that "he knew what he signed up for." Johnson was among four service members killed earlier this month during an ambush in Niger.

After Trump and White House Chief of Staff John Kelly criticized Wilson, she said, "You mean to tell me that I have become so important that the White House is following me and my words? This is amazing. Thatís amazing. That is absolutely phenomenal. Iíll have to tell my kids that Iím a rock star now."

Trump Jr. took to Twitter to call Wilson a "disgusting person."
