Top Democrats Leave Meeting with Trump on Syria Prematurely

AllSides Summary

Top Congressional Democrats including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer walked out of a meeting with President Donald Trump on Wednesday, claiming he had a "meltdown" and went on a "nasty diatribe." White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said the president was "measured, factual and decisive," and said the Democrats went "in front of cameras to whine." Trump has not publicly commented; the meeting followed a House vote that condemned Trump's removal of U.S. forces from northern Syria, 354-60. Outlets on the right side of the political spectrum tended to mention the statements from the White House and other Republicans more prominently in their coverage.
