Source: (The Week) Trump's 'meltdown' apparently started when Pelosi told him 'all roads with you lead to Putin'Pelosi said Russia has long sought a "foothold in the Middle East" and he had just given Russian President Vladimir Putin such an opening, adding: "All roads with you lead to Putin." That's when the already-tense meeting "reached a fever pitch," the Times reports.
The Associated Press recounts the next few exchanges:
Trump: "I hate ISIS more than you do."
Pelosi: "You don't know that."
Schumer: "Is your plan to rely on the Syrians and the Turks?"
Trump: "Our plan is to keep the American people safe."
Pelosi: "That's not a plan. That's a goal."

Well! These were some dynamics!
"All roads lead to Putin"?
"That's not a plan, that's a goal"?
Yeah, I see how this meeting blew-up. Particularly with the Putin comment (whether accurate or not).
