Democratic leaders walk out of meeting with Donald Trump on Syria, claim president had \'meltdown\'

WASHINGTON – Congressional Democrats walked out of a White House meeting on Syria on Wednesday, claiming President Donald Trump was demeaning to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

"He was insulting, particularly to the speaker. He called her a ‘third-rate politician,'" said Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. "This was not a dialogue, it was sort of a diatribe."

Pelosi said Trump was “shaken up” by having lost most Republicans in a Wednesday vote condemning Trump's decision to withdraw U.S. troops from Syria,

“What we witnessed on the part of the president was a meltdown, sad to say," Pelosi said.

Hours later, in a series of tweets attacking her, Trump said it was Pelosi who had an "unhinged meltdown." In another tweet, Trump claimed Pelosi "needs help fast," adding, "Pray for her, she is a very sick person!"

Pelosi then took the photo in Trump's tweet – which showed her standing up and pointing her finger at Trump – and made it the background photo of her Twitter and Facebook pages.

The White House meeting came soon after the House overwhelmingly passed bipartisan resolution condemning Trump's decision to withdraw U.S. troops from Syria, all but clearing the way for Turkey to invade territory held by the U.S.-allied Kurds.
