Trump escalates feud with Corker

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.

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

Sen. Corker told The New York Times Trump is treating the presidency like a "reality show", and that his threats to other countries could set the United States "on the path to World War III".

Sanders' comment followed a tweet from President Donald Trump on Sunday that also branded Corker "largely responsible" for the Iran deal.

"The vast majority of our caucus understand what we're dealing with here. they understand the volatility that we are dealing with and the tremendous amount of work that it takes from people around [Trump] to keep him in the middle of the road", Corker continued. "Was made to sound a fool, and that's what I'm dealing with". "I don't think so at all", he said.

"So have at it", Corker told Martin.

If someone recalls even something slightly off about the shooter, they said, the detail could be helpful in the investigation. He declined to reveal what they had said, but stated: "Every piece of information we get is one more piece of the puzzle".

Corker replied, "It's a shame the White House has become an adult day care center".

On Oct. 9, Corker stated that Trump had intentionally made inaccurate statements on a regular basis. Trump later picked the much taller Rex Tillerson for the job. One of the Senate's most committed deficit hawks and outspoken members on budgetary issues, Corker already has expressed concerns with the Trump administration's proposal on tax cuts, and his vote will be key to any deal getting done.

The feud is odd because Corker was briefly considered as a vice president running mate during the 2016 campaign.

Known for his blunt commentary, Corker had long softened any public criticism of Trump or his administration with carefully worded praise.

But the president on Tuesday downplayed the possibility that the sharply personal feud with Corker - whom Trump referred to as "Liddle' Bob" in a tweet earlier in the day - could derail his push to find 50 Republican senators to support still-emerging tax overhaul legislation.
