While making remarks on the House floor about a resolution condemming President Trump for what she deemed "racist" tweets, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was ruled out of order and appeared to leave after a floor fight broke out in the House, according to Fox News.

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, a Democrat, announced the decision and ruled the speaker out of order. A motion was made to remove Pelosi's words from the record, but that decision was voted down and a separate vote was held to restore her speaking privileges on the floor.

After a considerable back and forth, Pelosi reportedly left the House floor, which is a violation of House Rules when someone's words are removed.
