Trump Hits Obama, Pelosi And ‘Corrupt’ Adam Schiff In Rambling Tweet Over Syria Debacle

President Donald Trump on Sunday lashed out at Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) as she led a bipartisan congressional delegation to Jordan to discuss the administration’s recent decision to pull troops from Syria. He also blamed former President Barack Obama over “millions of deads” in the the war-torn country.

“Pelosi is now leading a delegation of 9, including Corrupt Adam Schiff, to Jordan to check out Syria. She should find out why Obama drew The Red Line In the Sand, & then did NOTHING, losing Syria & all respect. I did something, 58 missiles. One million died under Obama’s mistake!” Trump tweeted.

Trump has become increasingly critical of Pelosi, who formally launched an impeachment inquiry over his dealings with Ukraine.

Last week, Republican leadership joined Democrats this week to condemn Trump’s decision to pull U.S. forces out of northeastern Syria, which was subsequently invaded by Turkish-backed forces in an effort to destroy or drive off Kurdish militant groups that aided the U.S. coalition against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS). The House overwhelmingly voted to formally rebuke Trump over his decision.

The president’s anger over the vote erupted last week in a White House meeting with Democratic leadership, which resulted in both the president and Pelosi accusing each other of “melting down” in the hours following the meeting.
