Amid Corker Feud, Trump Dismisses Senator's WWIII Warning

Corker’s feud with Trump erupted Sunday after the senator announced he would not be seeking a third term in 2018

President Donald Trump, who reportedly once considered Corker as a possible running mate or Secretary of State, lashed out at Corker on Twitter, saying "Senator Bob Corker "begged" me to endorse him for re-election in Tennessee".

Trump pointed the finger at the previous USA presidential administrations, which he said were on "the wrong path".

Every Republican senator up for re-election in 2018, with the exception of Sen.

Trump's outburst comes after Corker made headlines last week when he starkly suggested that the administration's national security team provides the president with badly needed adult supervision.

A transcript of the conversation, however, shows that the newspaper did not set Corker up and that the senator was well aware that he was on the record.

Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) said he didn't condone Corker's comments and several people were concerned about the president's unpredictable tweets. "I don't like normally talking to you on the record - I'm kidding you - but I will".

The tension in the White House has become so fraught that some officials are anxious Trump may force his Cabinet to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove him from office, according to Vanity Fair. Trump then said that Corker was partly responsible for the Iran nuclear deal, which Trump had already characterized and one of the worst deals in history. I said "NO" and he dropped out (said he could not win without.my endorsement). Trump later picked the much taller Rex Tillerson for the job.

On Oct. 9, Corker stated that Trump had intentionally made inaccurate statements on a regular basis. However, Trump is alleged to have remarked to associates that Corker, whose height is 5-foot-7, was too short for the top diplomat position.

Trump said Tuesday that he didn't think his feud with Corker would imperil his tax cut plan.
