The Feud Between Trump and Corker Is Puzzling to Washington Insiders

President Donald Trump is not backing down from his feud with Sen. And Corker also figures to be a key player if Trump moves as expected to unwind the Iran nuclear deal. Hence, I would fully expect Corker to be a negative voice and stand in the way of our great agenda. Roy Blunt of Missouri, a member of the GOP leadership, told reporters Tuesday at the Capitol.

"I think we're well on our way, ' Trump said of Republican efforts to craft the bill".

Every Republican senator up for re-election in 2018, with the exception of Sen.

Corker is the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

According to a transcript of the call, Corker stated during the interview that he was "on the record" in the conversation. Corker also said that Trump could set the U.S.

Trump's outburst comes after Corker made headlines last week when he starkly suggested that the administration's national security team provides the president with badly needed adult supervision.

Trump continued his feud with Corker during a Tuesday meeting with former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, pushing back on the senator's statement that Trump is putting the United States on a path toward World War III.

"I don't think so, no, I don't think so at all", he said in response to a reporter's question.

The barbs followed a fresh Twitter blast from Trump, in which the president gave the 5-foot-7-inch Corker a new disparaging nickname, "Liddle' Bob", and said he had been made to look like a "fool" in an interview.

Sherman, of course, is a professional, and was duty-bound to reach out to the Trump administration and ask them to confirm or deny whether the commander-in-chief had indeed openly expressed his hatred for everyone who works for him, and, perhaps, whether he had followed up this proclamation by stamping up the stairs to his bedroom and loudly and performatively slamming the door behind him. Bob Corker, sending an unmistakable signal to other Republicans that public criticism of President Trump will be met with a fierce public scolding. He has said he wants to avoid a new war on the Korean Peninsula, but made clear he is ready to order US military operations there if the North attacks first or if all other options have proved fruitless.
