>> I'm not going back and forth with the President.>> The feud between the White House and Florida Congresswoman Frederica Wilson is showing no signs of abating. Trump and his advisors have defended the President after Wilson criticized his call to an Army widow, which the Congresswoman was invited to listen to and found disrespectful, a characterization shared by the wife of the fallen soldier.
00:00:20
>> He said to the wife, well, I guess he knew what he was getting into. How insensitive can you be?>> Trump denied saying what she said he said.>> Didn't say what that Congreswoman said. Didn't say it at all.>> On Thursday White House Chief of Staff, John Kelly also stood up for the President.
00:00:37
And condemned Congresswoman Wilson for grandstanding during an FBI ceremony in 2015.>> And in the long tradition of empty barrels making the most noise, stood up there in all of that and talked about how she was instrumental in getting the funding for that building.>> Wilson said that was a lie.
00:00:57
And the full video of the 2015 speech posted Friday by the Florida Sun Sentinel refutes Kelly's claim. Reuters, Karen Boham.>> So we're now in day five of this discussion over the words of the President and the words of others in conversations consoling the families of fallen soldiers.
00:01:19
And the account of the FBI dedication is a side issue in all of that, but it is prolonging the discussion of this broader issue. This has become personal between the Congresswoman and Chief of Staff Kelly. And she has also said that she feels that there are racist overtones to how this White House has treated her and reacted to her.
00:01:45
>> On Friday, the White House said Kelly stands behind what he said.>> And she also had quite a few comments that day that weren't part of that speech and weren't part of that video.>> In fact, Sanders said it wasn't even appropriate to question Kelly.>> If you wanna get into a debate with a four-star Marine general, I think that that's something highly inappropriate.
