Trump rails against Corker and Flake

President Trump mocked Sens. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., and Shaun Flake, R-Ariz., Wednesday morning regarding acting “so hurt & wounded,” after both shipped striking criticism of Trump per day earlier.

Both GOP lawmakers, that are not running for reelection the coming year, repeatedly criticized Trump across wire news shows Tuesday and Wed morning. In response, Trump claimed that this senators opted to retire due to the fact both had “zero chance” of time for the Senate for another term.

The president also attempted to minimize proof of a split within his celebration by insisting a Tuesday lunch time with Republican senators “outside of Flake & Corker, was a love fest with standing ovations and great ideas for USA!”

Trump had been locked in an increasingly personal back-and-forth with Corker for much of Wednesday morning after Corker said throughout a TV interview that the White Home should let Congress take the guide on tax reform.

The chief executive fired back by saying Corker, who has twice been elected towards the U. S. Senate, “couldn’t get elected dog catcher in Tennessee.” Corker announced last month that he may not seek reelection in 2018, yet unlike the embattled Flake, it had been not clear whether the Tennessee Republican could have faced a serious primary challenge.

Corker then predicted of Trump: “The debasement of our nation will be what he’ll be remembered most for, and that’s regretful.”

Later Tuesday, after the lunch “love fest,” Flake suddenly announced that he would not look for reelection in 2018. In a spectacular speech on the Senate floor, Flake called on his colleagues to end “our complicity and our accommodation of the unacceptable.”

Flake reiterated that criticism of Trump in a Washington Post op-ed entitled “Enough,” as well as across five various cable news shows Wednesday early morning.

“We’ve gotten nine months into the administration,” Flake said on “Good Morning America.” “Those of us who had hoped for a pivot, I think, agree now it’s just not going to come and so it’s up to us to stand up and say this is not acceptable.”
