Congressional Democrats walked out of the White House after Syria meeting on Wednesday. Accusations that President Donald Trump was having a meltdown and shaming 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,” he added.
Pelosi said Trump was “shaken up” because of losing the Republicans on Wednesday by condemning Trump’s decision to withdraw US troops from Syria.
The Speaker also said, “What we witnessed on the part of the president was a meltdown, sad to say.”
Adding to the heat, a series of tweet by Trump saying it was Pelosi who had “unhinged meltdown.” Moreover, Trump also said that Pelosi “needs help fast,” adding, “Pray for her, she is a very sick person!”

Meanwhile, the group photo that circulated online – showing Pelosi standing up and pointing a finger on Trump – is Pelosi’s background photo on her Twitter and Facebook pages.
On the other hand, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif, said the meeting was “very productive”.
“Those who would stay in the room are those who care the most for the process of solving this problem and making sure America is safe,” McCarthy said.
