Trump Rips GOP Senator Who Criticized Him Publicly

WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump lashed out on Sunday at Sen. Bob Corker, a Republican from Tennessee who serves as chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, after the lawmaker recently criticized him publicly.

“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 ... my endorsement),” Trump said in a series of Twitter posts.

Corker recently announced that he would not seek re-election in the 2018 midterm elections.

“He also wanted to be Secretary of State, I said ‘NO THANKS.’ He is also largely responsible for the horrendous Iran Deal!” Trump tweeted.

In August, Corker criticized Trump’s response to the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, where a 32-year-old woman died when a neo-Nazi drove his vehicle into a crowd of anti-racist protesters.

Corker hit back at Trump on Sunday, questioning the direction of the White House.

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

The senator said last week that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Defense Secretary James Mattis and White House Chief of Staff John Kelly were the “people that help separate our country from chaos.”
