GOP Leader McCarthy Rips Dems for Walking Out on Trump

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., attacked Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday after she and other Democratic leaders walked out of a meeting on Syria with President Donald Trump, during which Pelosi later said he had a "meltdown."

"The speaker tries to make everything political," McCarthy told reporters outside the White House, flanked by Rep. Mike McCaul, R-Texas. "Her own statements were unproductive.

"To storm out of a meeting, which I've watched before during other crisis, it is really not the ability of a speaker or the style how a speaker should carry herself out."

Pelosi, D-Calif., and two other Democratic leaders — House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. — met with Trump after the House overwhelmingly voted to condemn the president for his actions in Syria and the subsequent invasion by Turkey.

"What we witnessed on the part of the president was a meltdown, sad to say," Pelosi said, speculating that Trump was angered at the House vote.

Schumer said that the president called Pelosi "a third-rate politician" — and the speaker interjected to Trump: "I wish you were a politician, Mr. President, then you would know the art of the possible."
