President Trump claims Senator Corker "begged" for endorsement — Twitter battle

President Trump hits Twitter to criticize Tennessee Senator Bob Corker

President Trump hits Twitter to criticize Tennessee Senator Bob Corker

With no more elections to face, Corker has nothing to lose, and Trump is now giving the senator even more license to criticize him at will.

President Donald Trump and Sen. Trump tweeted this morning. The Iran deal went on to survive a GOP effort to kill it in the Senate thanks to a Democratic filibuster, not the support of Corker or any other Republican. "Didn't have the guts to run!" the president proceeded.

Corker quickly issued his own response. "Someone obviously missed their shift this morning", he quipped on Twitter.

That was after the senator's remarks on Trump's response to the Charlottesville demonstration. Corker's chief of staff, contradicted the president's version of events.

Trump began by blaming the Tennessee senator for "the horrendous Iran deal" and suggested that he was blocking the Republicans' "great agenda" because Trump supposedly refused to endorse him for re-election.

'There are two Walking Dead shows, there is one character, who I will not name, who is going to go from one show and appear in the other, which I will not name'.

"You can only tear these things up one time", he said.

"I deal with people throughout the administration and he from my perspective is in an incredibly frustrating place", Corker said of Tillerson, later adding, "he ends up not being supportive in the way that I would hope a Secretary of State would be supported and that's just from my vantage point".

Trump tweets that Corker "Didn't have the guts to run".

Corker, a ten year veteran of the US Senate, representing the people of Tennessee, responded quickly and decisively to Trump's tweet in a way that has surprised pretty much everyone, regardless of their political affiliation.

It's a shame the White House has become an adult day care center. "Presidents and their administrations have been talking to North Korea for 25 years, agreements made and massive amounts of money paid hasn't worked, agreements violated before the ink was dry, makings fools of US negotiators", he wrote. Corker is chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

Those facilities will benefit not only those areas, but also the island as a whole, he pointed out. "Whatever, any little bit, we want to do it", Susan Ramirez, who donated supplies, said.

A week ago, the Tennessee Republican said Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Defense Secretary James Mattis and head of staff John Kelly are shielding the nation from "tumult".

Sykes, who has never been a Trump supporter, said the real estate mogul's actions for the past two years should have been an early warning sign that the commander-in-chief does not act rationally.

White House spokesman Sarah Huckabee Sanders had previously said Corker's "chaos" comment was off the mark.

Corker isn't a new critic of the administration.

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

Western Michigan beats Buffalo 71-68 in a record-tying 7 overtimes
Adam Grant missed a 29-yard field goal after a bad snap on the next possession, giving UB yet another chance to win the game. But as improbable as that was, it doesn't really compare to what happened during the first overtime of the game.

Donald Trump is no stranger to attacking members of his own party on Twitter. The two held a private meeting last month where Mr Trump pushed him to run, according to the Associated Press.
