WASHINGTON, Oct 16 (Reuters) - House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said U.S. Democratic leaders' White House meeting was cut short after Republican President Donald Trump had a "meltdown" over a House of Representatives vote condemning his Syria withdrawal.

"I think that vote - the size of the vote, more than 2-1 of the Republicans voted to oppose what the president did - probably got to the president. Because he was shaken up by it," Pelosi told reporters.

"And that's why we couldn't continue in the meeting because he was just not relating to the reality of it."

She later said Trump had a meltdown.

Pelosi leads 'bipartisan' US group for meetings in Jordan .
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and a group of US lawmakers arrived in Jordan for talks with King Abdullah II, her office said Saturday, just days after the speaker clashed with President Donald Trump in a meeting on Syria policy. On Wednesday, Pelosi and Senate minority leader Charles Schumer walked out of an acrimonious White House meeting with Trump on Syria, a sign of the deteriorating relations as the House conducts an impeachment inquiry. The administration then brokered a ceasefire between Turkish and Kurdish forces Thursday, but on Saturday the sides accused each other of violating the agreement.
