President Trump's feud with Republican Sen.
"Corker had 2 aides on line, also recording, and they made sure after it ended that I was taping, too", Martin said in response to Trump's tweet. Marco Rubio, R-Florida, then a presidential candidate himself, the same moniker. "It's L-Y-I-N apostrophe. Ted's a liar, so that was easy". "I said "NO" and he dropped out (said he could not win without my endorsement)".
"The vast majority of our caucus understand what we're dealing with here. they understand the volatility that we are dealing with and the tremendous amount of work that it takes from people around [Trump] to keep him in the middle of the road", Corker continued.
Corker, who is not seeking re-election in 2018, disputed Trump's version of events. Bob Corker and is now suggesting that the Tennessee Republican's conversation with The New York Times was recorded without his awareness. When Corker later called Trump to tell him that he had chose to retire - a decision Corker made on his 65th birthday, August 24 - the president expressed disappointment, the congressional official said.
The comment comes a week after Corker jabbed Trump, stating that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Defense Secretary James Mattis and White House Chief of Staff John Kelly "help separate our country from chaos". Bob Corker is apparently still on, based on the new nickname the president bestowed upon Corker Tuesday morning. Trump has yet to score a signature legislative victory, a black mark on his record given his party controls both the Senate and House.
According to the poll by Associated Press and NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, 65 percent of Americans think Trump's recent remarks regarding the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) have made the situation worse. "I don't think so at all", he said.
"If Bob Corker has any honor, any decency, he should resign immediately", Bannon said in an interview with Fox News' Sean Hannity on Monday night.
