Sen. Bob Corker burns Trump and gets backlash on Twitter
Sen. Corker Blasts Trump on Foreign Policy: ‘Leave it to the Professionals for a While’ in an appearance on Good Morning America. President Donald Trump took to Twitter to attack Sen Bob Corker.
Sen. Bob Corker kept up his biting criticisms of the president in an appearance on Good Morning America, when asked if he stood by his recent remarks that the White House is an adult day care centre, and that Donald Trump’s rhetoric could put the U.S. “on the path to World War III.”
“Any second thoughts about those comments?” asked the host, George Stephanopoulos.
“No George, I don’t make comments that I haven’t thought about,” Corker replied. The Tennessee senator explained that his comment about the White House being an adult day care centre “was obviously in response to a very fallacious tweet that the president sent out.”
Corker’s daycare missive was a reply to a Trump tweet claiming the senator was not running for re-election because he declined to endorse him.
President Donald Trump, immediately threw another barb in his feud with Sen. Bob Corker, complicating a critical time in the GOP's push to overhaul the American tax system.
In tweets, Trump contended the Tennessee Republican is "fighting" tax cuts and "couldn't get elected dog catcher" in his state. The president again claimed that Corker chose not to run for re-election when Trump "refused" to endorse him and said he "now is only negative on anything Trump."
