Trump escalates feud with Corker

Trump escalates feud with Corker”

Tax plan puts swing-state Republicans in tough spot MORE (R-Tenn.) on Tuesday, saying the GOP lawmaker was partially responsible for the Obama administration's nuclear deal with Iran and refusing to say whether the retiring Corker should resign immediately.

"The Failing New York Times set Liddle' Bob Corker up by recording his conversation".

Trump alleged Sunday morning in a Twitter tirade that Corker recently "begged" him for his endorsement, did not receive it and chose to retire because he "didn't have the guts" to run for reelection next year.

WSJ weighs in: The conservative editorial page of the Wall Street Journal thinks Corker spoke the truth about the president's "lack of discipline, short fuse, narcissism and habit of treating even foreign heads of state as if they are Rosie O'Donnell", and it hopes other top Republicans follow Corker's lead because it might actually help. The Tennessee senator had asked the journalist to record their conversation and said that his staff was recording as well. I said "NO" and he dropped out (said he could not win without.my endorsement).

Corker punctuated this by telling the Times that "except for a few people, the vast majority of our caucus" - meaning, of the Senate's 52 Republicans - "understands what we're dealing with here".

Every Republican senator up for re-election in 2018, with the exception of Sen. "I understand we're on the record". "Didn't have the guts to run!"

"I don't know why the president tweets out things that are not true", Corker told The New York Times.

The clash between Corker and Trump highlights fraying relations between the President and the men and women in Congress who the White House needs to deliver on the agenda Trump ran on.

In recent months, Trump has also gone after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Ky., and Sens.

Corker's comments have already infuriated Trump's base.

Mick Mulvaney, director of the Office of Management and Budget, said Sunday that he thinks Corker feels free to speak his mind now that he is not seeking reelection.
