TRUMP & Sen. Corker get into Twitter war


President Trump decided to shine a light on Senator Bob Corker Sunday morning.

Corker has been highly critical of Trump over the past few months.

Corker, who serves as the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, announced last month he wouldn’t seek reelection in 2018, becoming the first GOP senator to do so. He has been increasingly critical of Trump, despite the fact that during Trump’s campaign he was briefly considered for the role of vice president.

The Tennessee Republican said Wednesday that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Secretary of Defense James Mattis and White House chief of staff John Kelly are keeping the U.S. from “chaos.”

Corker said the three men “work well together to make sure that the policies that we put forth around the world are sound and coherent.” He added, “I hope they stay.”

The president published a 3-part tweet Sunday which took a sledgehammer to Corker.

PART ONE: “Senator Bob Corker “begged” me to endorse him for re-election in Tennessee. I said “NO” and he dropped out (said he could not win without…”

PART TWO: “ endorsement). He also wanted to be Secretary of State, I said “NO THANKS.” He is also largely responsible for the horrendous Iran Deal!”

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

In response to the president’s tweets, Corker sent out a hard-hitting message of his own about Trump and his behavior.

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