Trump escalates feud with Corker

Trump escalates feud with Corker

The White House on Tuesday escalated its feud with Sen.

President Donald Trump began his morning by tweeting that The New York Times "set Liddle' Bob Corker up by recording his conversation".

The Tennessee senator added that the majority of Senate Republicans privately had reservations about the president.

In that interview, which followed a scathing back-and-forth between Trump and Corker earlier in the day, Corker suggested that Trump's actions could prompt World War III and said he does not "know why the president tweets out things that are not true".

GOP trouble: At the National Journal, political analyst Charlie Cook of the Cook Political Report writes that Trump went to a "darker place" in his Corker criticism, and he now thinks the GOP majority is in jeopardy not only in the Senate but in the House.

Secessionist moves in Iraq detrimental to security of region: Iran DM
But Kurdish leaders have said they will use it to press for negotiations on eventually forming their own state. Iran and Turkey have resolved to work together to ease tension in the crisis-hit Middle East region.

When Obama didn't do that, Corker helped fellow senators write legislation that subjected the worldwide accord to periodic congressional review. "Corker and the people of Tennessee", Sanders said. "I said "NO" and he dropped out (said he could not win without my endorsement)".

Corker, the former mayor of Chattanooga, has said in recent days that Trump behaves as if he's still on a reality TV show, that White House aides have to run an adult day care, and Corker suggested Trump's bluster and threats toward North Korea could set the US on a path to World War III.

"The president called Senator Corker on Monday afternoon and asked him to reconsider his decision not to seek reelection and reaffirmed that he would have endorsed him, as he has said many times", Womack said in a statement. "I understand we're on the record". Corker had been an ally and personal friend to the president before they developed a public feud on social media. "Didn't have the guts to run!" "I don't think so at all", he said. Even after Trump won, Corker was on the list of possibilities for Secretary of State.

"If Bob Corker has any honor, any decency, he should resign immediately", Bannon said in an interview with Fox News' Sean Hannity on Monday night.
