The Feud Between Trump and Corker Is Puzzling to Washington Insiders

The Feud Between Trump and Corker Is Puzzling to Washington Insiders

Bob Corker of having worked with Democrats and the Obama administration to make the Iran nuclear deal happen.

Senate Republicans are imploring President Donald Trump and Sen.

Corker, in the New York Times interview, said that Trump is acting "like he's doing "The Apprentice" or something", and added that he could set the nation "on the path to World War III".

According to the poll by Associated Press and NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, 65 percent of Americans think Trump's recent remarks regarding the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) have made the situation worse. Everything seemed to be going along fairly well between them until Senator Corker made several curious comments to the media. After the outbreak of violent protests in Charlottesville, Va., Corker said that he didn't feel that Trump had demonstrated the "competence" or "stability" needed for a successful presidency.

"We're on the right path right now, believe me", Trump said during his meeting with prominent US Diplomat Henry Kissinger earlier this week.

"I know they're recording it, and I hope you are, too", Corker said.

The feud between Corker and Trump had escalated this weekend when the President tweeted that the outgoing senator "begged" for his endorsement before declining to run for re-election. "Didn't have the guts to run!"

Trump was in Huntsville late last month on behalf of U.S. Sen. Corker also helped tutor Trump on foreign affairs, and he in turn considered the senator as a possible running mate and secretary of state. When Corker later called Trump to tell him that he had chose to retire - a decision Corker made on his 65th birthday, August 24 - the president expressed disappointment, the congressional official said.

Mick Mulvaney, director of the Office of Management and Budget, said Sunday that he thinks Corker feels free to speak his mind now that he is not seeking reelection. Even after Trump won, Corker was on the list of possibilities for Secretary of State.
