Trump in his tweet was referring to former President Obama's vow to use military force against the Syrian government were to use chemical weapons against rebel forces in Syria. Obama eventually backed away from that promise.
Trump, who has frequently criticized his predecessor's decision not to use military force against Syrian President Bashar Assad has become increasingly critical of Pelosi, who formally launched an impeachment inquiry into his dealings with Ukraine.
Republican leadership joined Democrats this week to condemn Trum p'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 last week 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.
