Trump-Corker feud heats up ahead of meeting

'He died fighting for his brothers,' Niger ambush survivor says of fallen US soldier

President Trump added fuel in order to his feud with Sen. Frank Corker, R-Tenn., Tuesday, saying the particular retiring senator “couldn’t get elected dog catcher” in his house state, after Corker suggested the particular White House let Congress take those reins on tax reform.

“Bob Corker, who helped President O give us the bad Iran Deal & couldn’t get elected dog catcher in Tennessee, is now fighting Tax Cuts…. …Corker dropped out of the race in Tennesse [sic] when I refused to endorse him, and now is only negative on anything Trump,” Trump tweeted Tuesday. “Look at his record!”

Corker rapidly shot back, “Same untruths from an utterly untruth president. #AlertTheDaycareStaff.”

The president wasn’t finished. He then added, “Isn’t it sad that lightweight Senator Bob Corker, who couldn’t get re-elected in the Great State of Tennessee, will now fight Tax Cuts plus!”

“Sen. Corker is the incompetent head of the Foreign Relations Committee, & look how poorly the U.S. has done,” Trump continued. “He doesn’t have a clue as….. …the entire World WAS laughing and taking advantage of us. People like liddle’ Bob Corker have set the U.S. way back. Now we move forward!”

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 “adult day care center” after the president went on a Tweets tirade against him.

Trump retorted then that the senator “didn’t have the guts to run” intended for reelection in 2018. He true that Corker was attempting to derail the White House agenda as they hadn’t been named secretary associated with state or received Trump’s certification in the Tennessee Senate race.

Later that day, Corker, in an job interview with the New York Times, said associated with Trump: “I know for a fact that every single day at the White House, it’s a situation of trying to contain him.”

Corker will attend the lunch with Trump and His party senators on Capitol Hill Wednesday, although he described the conference as a “photo op” to  NBC Information Monday. He implied that Our elected representatives, not the White House, need to lead tax reform efforts.

“You got to remember, tax reform is our agenda,” Corker said. “It’s the Senate’s agenda. It’s a House agenda. This was something that’s been on our agenda long before the president ran for president. So, to act as if it’s his agenda — it’s our agenda.”
