Nancy Pelosi, the Speaker of US House of representatives, changed her Twitter cover to a photograph which US President Donald Trump had earlier tweeted, calling it Pelosi’s 'meltdown'. In the photograph, Pelosi can be seen standing during a White House meeting and pointing finger towards Trump. The US President tweeted the photograph with caption ‘Nervous Nancy's unhinged meltdown!’

While the Congressional Democratic leaders claimed that the US President had a "meltdown" during the meeting, Trump, in another tweet, reiterated that Pelosi had a meltdown and it was ‘very sad to watch’.
Nancy Pelosi needs help fast! There is either something wrong with her “upstairs,” or she just plain doesn’t like our great Country. She had a total meltdown in the White House today. It was very sad to watch. Pray for her, she is a very sick person!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 17, 2019
Nancy Pelosi’s Deputy Chief of Staff Drew Hammill thanked Donald Trump for Pelosi’s new cover photo. Senator from Minnesota Amy Klobuchar also tweeted the photograph saying Pelosi beats Trump every day.
The White House meeting was arranged to discuss the situation in Syria and the decision of Trump’s administration to withdraw their troops. Later, Pelosi took to Twitter to inform that the White House cancelled an all-member classified briefing on the ‘dangerous situation the President has caused in Syria.’ Pelosi blamed the White House of “denying the Congress its right to be informed” on the decisions of national security.
Trump has been facing criticism from the Democrats over the withdrawal of US troops from northeastern Syria which allowed Turkish incursion. Since then, Trump has been threatening Turkey to destroy the economy but a defiant Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has not backed out. Trump even wrote a letter to Erdogan asking him not to be a "fool" and "tough guy".
