President Donald Trump is not backing down from his feud with Sen. "Was made to sound a fool, and that's what I am dealing with!"
Some top Republicans are already sending mixed messages in their complaints about the Trump tax plan, even though the final version of the revenue reform measure has yet to be written.
On Tuesday, Trump took to Twitter to lambaste "Liddle Bob Corker", after the Tennessee Republican said he anxious that Trump's belligerent foreign policy rhetoric could ignite "World War III".
Trump was asked about Corker on Tuesday as reporters were allowed into the Oval Office while he was meeting with former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger. As chairman of the foreign relations panel, Corker, Tenn., will help determine the future of the Iran nuclear deal, and his support will be critical in passing broad tax cuts. Everything seemed to be going along fairly well between them until Senator Corker made several curious comments to the media. "I said "NO" and he dropped out (said he could not win without my endorsement)".More news: Preckwinkle's sweetened beverage tax repealed
"I understand we're on the record". "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!"
Apparently unwilling to let Corker's "adult day care center" barb be the last word, Trump tweeted Sunday afternoon that Corker was an ineffective senator and could not "get the job done".
"I don't know why the president tweets out things that are not true", Corker told The New York Times. Trump believes US corporations are the highest taxed in the world and that the people of the United States desperately want to be relieved of burdensome taxes. 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.
The feud is odd because Corker was briefly considered as a vice president running mate during the 2016 campaign. "I don't think so at all", he said.
