Trump later posted a photo of the meeting, showing a standing Pelosi addressing Trump and his Cabinet members across a long table, calling it evidence that the Speaker had a "meltdown" during the discussion.

Pelosi, at a press conference, accused Trump of ignoring the reality of the bipartisan outrage surrounding his decision to pull U.S. forces out of the site of a Turkish invasion of Kurdish-held northern Syria.

"I pray for the president all the time, and I tell him that. I pray for his safety and that of his family. Now we have to pray for his health because this was a very serious meltdown on the part of the president," she said.
