Corker Begged Me For Endorsement

This week Sen. Bob Corker R-Tenn. told reporters that Secretaries Mattis and Tillerson along with Chief of Staff John Kelly'separate the country from chaos' a clear dig at President Trump Marsha Blackburn, 'Politically Incorrect And Proud Of It,' Runs For Senate In Tenn.

Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) is retiring from office because Trump refused to endorse him for re-election next year ― a claim that a source familiar with the matter disputed.

President Donald Trump this morning blasted U.S. Sen.

Corker has also publicly criticized Trump for his frequent tweets on North Korea, especially those that depict Tillerson's diplomatic overtures to the country as a waste of time. He concluded that Corker, 65, would "be a negative voice and stand in the way of our agenda".

"There are other people within the administration, in my belief, that don't", he said. "Someone obviously missed their shift this morning", Corker tweeted.

Even before the Trump tweets, Corker had started criticizing the president.

It's a shame the White House has become an adult day care center.

White House budget director Mick Mulvaney said as much on Meet the Press, remarking that it would be "fun" to work with Corker because his impending retirement "sort of unleashes him to do whatever - and say whatever - he wants to say". Bob Corker was a "negative voice" in the Senate and was responsible for the "horrendous" Iran nuclear deal.

Corker was the principal representative to declare that he will resign for the 2018 primaries and has turned out to be progressively disparaging of Trump.

In August, Trump said Corker was "constantly asking me whether or not he should run again in '18".

"But I don't think we're that close to chaos anyway", he said, adding, "I'm in the White House every single day and I've never seen the chaos that gets reported outside".

Sen. Bob Corker is always one to speak his mind.

By now you are all likely aware that President Trump likes to attack his political foes on Twitter.

Here's how Trump led off the morning against Corker, who's already announced he won't run for reelection in 2018.

Corker's a fiscal hawk and he's holding the GOP's feet to the fire on legislation to rewrite the tax system.

Republicans now hold a meagre two seat majority in the Senate, a situation which has seen them fall short of being able to pass healthcare legislation since they can afford to lose so few votes. Just three defections would torpedo the party's top legislative priority in their partisan push.
