President Donald Trump reportedly suffered a meltdown during a Wednesday meeting at the White House with congressional leaders.
Trump reportedly lectured and insulted Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), according to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY).
“I would also say one other thing. He was insulting, particularly to the speaker,” Schumer told reporters after the meeting ended because Trump was too “shaken.”
Pelosi called it a “meltdown.”

Schumer said Pelosi, “kept her cool completely.”
“But he called her a third-rate politician, he said that there are communists involved and you guys might like that. This was not a dialogue,” he said.
“It was sort of a diatribe, a nasty diatribe, not focused on the facts, particularly the facts of how to curtail ISIS, a terrorist organization that aims to hurt the United States in our homeland,” Schumer concluded.
