Congressional Democrats walked out of a White House meeting on Syria with President Trump on Wednesday.
Pelosi’s behavior was “unbecoming” according to Rep. McCarthy and the President responded to her by hammering the House Speaker, calling her a “third grade politician.”
Initial reports claimed Trump called Pelosi a “third rate politician,” however it was later corrected to accurately report that he called her a ‘third grade politician.”
Prior to the meeting, the House passed a resolution opposing President Trump’s decision to pull US troops out of Northern Syria.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) threw a tantrum and stormed out of the meeting, according to House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA).
Pelosi told reporters outside of the White House that Trump was “shaken up” and refused to cooperate.
“That’s why we couldn’t continue in the meeting because he was just not relating to the reality of it,” Pelosi told reporters outside of the White House.
