Republicans to Trump and Corker: Please just stop

Trump Calls Senator Corker 'Liddle Bob' on Twitter

STAND ALONE

Sen. Bob Corker, the retiring Republican chair of the Senate foreign relations committee, has engaged in a heated back-and-forth with Trump for days now, including in an interview with The New York Times where he said that he feared Trump was steering the nation "on the path to World War III".

Hence, I would fully expect Corker to be a negative voice and stand in the way of our great agenda.

The feud is odd because Corker was briefly considered as a vice president running mate during the 2016 campaign. Bob Corker of having worked with Democrats and the Obama administration to make the Iran nuclear deal happen.

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

The Times responded to Trump's tweet by releasing an audio recording of Corker's interview. Trump reacted by tweeting that Corker had decided not to run for reelection in 2018 because the president refused to endorse Corker. Even after Trump won, Corker was on the list of possibilities for Secretary of State. The Tennessee senator had asked the journalist to record their conversation and said that his staff was recording as well.

No. 2 Clemson tops Wake Forest 28-14 as Bryant injured
Between its veteran offensive line and its imposing defensive line, Clemson is among the best teams in the nation in the trenches. Redshirt freshman Zerrick Cooper and true freshman Hunter Johnson both saw action at quarterback after Bryant was injured.

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. "Didn't have the guts to run!"

"I know they're recording it, and I hope you are, too", Corker said. 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. "I don't think so at all", he said.

Corker's comments have already infuriated Trump's base.

When Obama didn't do that, Corker helped fellow senators write legislation that subjected the worldwide accord to periodic congressional review.

Corker urged Trump to visit Alabama and campaign alongside odd in the closing days of the runoff campaign, and the president now partly blames Corker for encouraging him to get involved in a contest that has hurt his political standing, according to a person close to Trump and familiar with the dynamics.
