Trump has defended his behavior as president in response to attacks from both Flake of Arizona and Corker of Tennessee. He claimed Wednesday that both men announced plans to retire because they knew they could not win 2018 re-election bids.
"The reason Flake and Corker dropped out of the Senate race is very simple, they had zero chance of being elected. Now act so hurt & wounded!" Trump tweeted Wednesday morning.
Flake announced Tuesday he would not run and Corker did so last week.
Trump also said his administration is "working hard on the biggest tax cut in U.S. history."
