Democrats walked out of a White House meeting with President Trump on Syria and immediately held a press conference to slam the president.
According to news reports, Democrats left the White House meeting after the president called Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) a subpar politician. During the press conference, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said President Trump called Pelosi “a third-rate politician.”
Pelosi claimed President Trump called her a “third-grade politician.”
Pelosi, Schumer and House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) were at the White House meeting and addressed the media after they left.
Pelosi claimed President Trump had a “meltdown.”
Later in the day, Pelosi said she prays for “… the president all the time, and I tell him that — I pray for his safety and that of his family.”
Speaker Pelosi made a picture of her standing up to President Trump as her Twitter cover photo.

President Trump slammed Speaker Pelosi on Twitter.
Nancy Pelosi needs help fast! There is either something wrong with her “upstairs,” or she just plain doesn’t like our great Country. She had a total meltdown in the White House today. It was very sad to watch. Pray for her, she is a very sick person!
