House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was stone-cold serious on Wednesday as she told the country to pray for Donald Trump’s health after she and other Democrats witnessed what they called a “very serious meltdown” during a White House meeting that was supposed to be about the crisis in Syria.
Pelosi said Trump was triggered during the meeting when she expressed her concern over the president constantly making decisions that benefit Russia and Vladimir Putin.
“I have concerns about all roads leading to Putin,” the House Speaker said. “That seemed to have angered the president.”

I pray for the president all the time and I tell him that. I pray for his safety and that of his family. Now we have to pray for his health because this was a very serious meltdown on the part of the president. I expressed my appreciation for what our troops have done in Syria and, by all accounts from the generals, they have just really done the job very well that he’s now pulling out. The explanation for that is what we asked for all members of the House to hear and that was supposed to be tomorrow but then they somehow postponed it today. My concern that I expressed to the president is that Russia has for a long time always wanted to have a foothold in the Middle East and now he has enabled that to happen and I have concerns about all roads leading to Putin, whether it’s a foothold in the Middle East, whether it’s placing in doubt any military assistance to Ukraine, which is to the benefit of Putin, whether it’s placing in doubt our commitment to NATO, Article 5, which again all roads lead to Putin. The list goes on and on. That seemed to have angered the president.
Trump is increasingly unwell
Most of the country recognized when Donald Trump was just a candidate for president that he was unfit to be commander-in-chief. His conduct over the past three years has only confirmed that.
But in recent weeks, his behavior has taken an increasingly dangerous downward spiral. He isn’t just unpredictable and erratic, but he is out of control.
There was a time when Trump’s conduct was just laughable. But his rapidly declining mental health in recent weeks is no laughing matter.
