President Trump added fuel in order to his feud with Sen. Frank Corker, R-Tenn., Tuesday, saying the particular retiring senator âcouldnât get elected dog catcherâ in his house state, after Corker suggested the particular White House let Congress take those reins on tax reform.
âBob Corker, who helped President O give us the bad Iran Deal & couldnât get elected dog catcher in Tennessee, is now fighting Tax Cutsâ¦. â¦Corker dropped out of the race in Tennesse [sic] when I refused to endorse him, and now is only negative on anything Trump,â Trump tweeted Tuesday. âLook at his record!â
Corker rapidly shot back, âSame untruths from an utterly untruth president. #AlertTheDaycareStaff.â
The president wasnât finished. He then added, âIsnât it sad that lightweight Senator Bob Corker, who couldnât get re-elected in the Great State of Tennessee, will now fight Tax Cuts plus!â
âSen. Corker is the incompetent head of the Foreign Relations Committee, & look how poorly the U.S. has done,â Trump continued. âHe doesnât have a clue asâ¦..Â â¦the entire World WAS laughing and taking advantage of us. People like liddleâ Bob Corker have set the U.S. way back. Now we move forward!â
The barbs escalated the particular war of words between Corker and Trump. The Tennessee senator had earlier this month compared the White House to an âadult day care centerâ after the president went on a Tweets tirade against him.
Trump retorted then that the senator âdidnât have the guts to runâ intended for reelection in 2018. He true that Corker was attempting to derail the White House agenda as they hadnât been named secretary associated with state or received Trumpâs certification in the Tennessee Senate race.
Later that day, Corker, in an job interview with the New York Times, said associated with Trump: âI know for a fact that every single day at the White House, itâs a situation of trying to contain him.â
Corker will attend the lunch with Trump and His party senators on Capitol Hill Wednesday, although he described the conference as a âphoto opâ to Â NBC Information Monday. He implied that Our elected representatives, not the White House, need to lead tax reform efforts.
âYou got to remember, tax reform is our agenda,â Corker said. âItâs the Senateâs agenda. Itâs a House agenda. This was something thatâs been on our agenda long before the president ran for president. So, to act as if itâs his agenda â itâs our agenda.â
