NY Times tricked Corker by taping interview

President Trump intended Tuesday that the New York Times fooled Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., simply by taping the interview in which Corker said he thought Trump may start World War III.

“The Failing @nytimes set Liddle’ Bob Corker up by recording his conversation,” Trump tweeted Tuesday. “Was made to sound a fool, and that’s what I am dealing with!”

Trump had been referencing an interview Corker gave towards the New York Times Sunday. The senator, who recently announced he will not really seek reelection, said, on the report, he worried the country was proceeding “towards World War III” as a result of Trump’s provocative feedback toward North Korea.

The job interview was recorded both by the Times media reporter, Jonathan Martin, and two Corker staffers who were on the line. In a part transcript, Corker begins the job interview by confirming, “I understand we’re on the record.”

A spokesman for that Times told Yahoo News, “Senator Corker agreed to the interview and knew it was being recorded,” as is standard practice for selection interviews with public officials. Corker’s workplace had no comment.

The “liddle” moniker is recycled from the principal campaign, when Trump would utilize it to demean Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fl., emphasizing the diminutive transliteration at rallies and in an interview. Corker is five feet, seven in . tall. Rubio is five foot, nine inches. Trump claims to end up being six feet, three inches.

The president has repeatedly lashed away at the senator in recent times, apparently provoked by Corker’s opinion that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Secretary of Defense Adam Mattis and White House main of staff John Kelly are that separate “our country from chaos.”

“Senator Bob Corker ‘begged’ me to endorse him for re-election in Tennessee,” Trump messaged Sunday by way of response. “I said ‘NO’ and he dropped out (said he could not win without my endorsement). He also wanted to be Secretary of State, I said ‘NO THANKS.‘”

“Hence, I would fully expect Corker to be a negative voice and stand in the way of our great agenda,” Trump added. “Didn’t have the guts to run!”

Corker responded, “It’s a shame the White House has become an adult day care center. Someone obviously missed their shift this morning.”
