The Feud Between Trump and Corker Is Puzzling to Washington Insiders

The Feud Between Trump and Corker Is Puzzling to Washington Insiders

He started off by telling reporters that several advisors and aides to President Trump were a stabilizing force in the White House and were keeping the USA from plunging into chaos. The Tennessee senator had asked the journalist to record their conversation and said that his staff was recording as well.

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

Only eight percent think Trump is making the situation better, said the poll. He has said he wants to avoid a new war on the Korean Peninsula, but made clear he is ready to order USA military operations there if the North attacks first or if all other options have proved fruitless. Hence, I would fully expect Corker to be a negative voice and stand in the way of our great agenda. "Didn't have the guts to run!"

As Trump looks for his first major legislative victory, Corker's vote will be crucial on issues such as the coming tax overhaul bill.

"I understand we're on the record", Corker said at the beginning of the phone call with The New York Times.

Apparently unwilling to let Corker's "adult day care center" barb be the last word, Trump tweeted Sunday afternoon that Corker was an ineffective senator and could not "get the job done". Trump believes US corporations are the highest taxed in the world and that the people of the United States desperately want to be relieved of burdensome taxes.

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.

"Look, except for a few people, the vast majority of our caucus understands what we're dealing with here", he said in the interview.

"He worked with them on the legislation that rolled that out", Sanders responded. Instead, Trump said the country was "on the wrong path before" on the North Korea threat.

"A lot of people think that there is some kind of "good cop, bad cop" act underway, but that's just not true", Corker told the Times. "I think we are well on our way".
