"He was just not relating to the reality of it", Pelosi said of Trump's reaction to the vote.
To Trump, the special counsel's Russian Federation probe and now the impeachment inquiry shows Democrats are "trying to overthrow the results of. maybe the greatest election in the history of our country". He acknowledges, however, that it was a "complex situation" in between "Turkey is part of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, on the one hand, and, on the other hand, the Kurds, who are with us in fight against ISIS".
At a news conference with Italian President Sergio Mattarella, Trump also denied that his decision to withdraw USA forces from the area enabled Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to launch the attack, saying, "I didn't give him a green light".
According to a transcript comprised from accounts of witnesses to the phone call, the US President said: "We do a lot for the Ukraine.the United States has been very good to Ukraine". From her sun shades second to the way in which she clapped throughout President Trump's State of the Union handle, the California congresswoman typically breeds massive Web moments and memes.
The administration called in congressional leadership to discuss the situation in Syria. Insults flew and tempers flared. Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer of NY said they had done so when Trump "started calling Speaker Pelosi a third-rate politician".
Perhaps just as predictably, the impeachment inquiry has boosted Nancy Pelosi's popularity.
Hoyer sounded alarmed at the intensity of the White House confrontation. It was very sad to watch. The person called Trump's opening a lengthy, bombastic monologue.
For that to happen, the case against President Trump would have to be supported by the Senate, which is controlled by Republican party allies. Trump then spoke about a letter sent to Erdogan that he held as evidence that he didn't green-light Turkey's invasion of Syria.
But Mr Trump's commitment to that diplomacy seemed in doubt as he declared that the United States had no real interest in the matter, saying: "That has nothing to do with us". They will not let anyone know what is going on and refuse to allow an official vote like the Republicans did with President Clinton and Democrats did with President Nixon.
Trump: "I hate ISIS more than you do". "If Russia wants to get involved with Syria, that's really up to them".
"The President's decision to reverse sanctions against Turkey for brutally attacking our Kurdish partners in exchange for a sham ceasefire seriously undermines the credibility of America's foreign policy and sends a risky message to our allies and adversaries alike that our word can not be trusted", they said.
President Donald Trump was back in campaign mode Thursday night.
"Let them fight their own wars". He told reporters afterward that "there is a sense among both parties that this is an historic trade deal".
"He was insulting, particularly to the speaker", Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said.
