Corker Speaks Truth on Trump

President Donald Trump lashed out at Sen. "Was made to sound a fool, and that's what I am dealing with!"

In a subsequent New York Times interview, Corker charged that Trump was treating the White House like a "reality show" and steering the U.S toward "World War III".

He's the Nashville lawyer and decorated Iraq War veteran who quit his job to run for full time for the Democratic nomination to the seat now held by Senator Corker, but he is not changing things now that the incumbent won't be there and there might be other members of his own party in the race.

"We have them coming back now", he said about businesses expanding in the US. "Someone obviously missed their shift this morning". He added that many of his colleagues privately share his reservations about Trump, and criticized the information the president shares on Twitter.

Trump's antagonism toward Corker and other top GOP lawmakers risks his legislative agenda.

The president has been feuding for days with the Tennessee Republican senator, who chairs the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and is the Senate's most outspoken "deficit hawk".

Jonathan Martin, the reporter who interviewed Corker, tweeted that "Corker had 2 aides on the line, also recording, and they made sure after it ended that I was taping, too". A great friend of mine, somebody respected by everybody, senator Bob corker. "We're the highest taxed nation in the world", Trump said at the White House, repeating a claim that even his spokeswoman has said was not accurate. The president is likely to bristle at Corker's suggestion that Kelly is a sitter for the president, the person said, and that could lessen Kelly's influence or, ultimately, shorten his tenure. Trump mocked Corker on Twitter Tuesday morning, saying the Times set him up by recording their conversation. Corker, who is retiring at the end of his current Senate term, spoke of the president as though he were a toddler whose "worst instincts" to constantly be "contained" by those surrounding him.

The Associated Press sought to contact all 52 Republican senators yesterday for their response to Corker's comments and ask whether they believe Trump is fit for office, a question Corker declined to answer in the Times interview. And he never suggested he would back the final health care bill.
