The Feud Between Trump and Corker Is Puzzling to Washington Insiders

12 October 2017

Former Trump adviser Steve Bannon, the head of notorious far-right website Breitbart, apparently has told people he thinks there is only a 30 percent chance Trump makes it to the end of his first term as president, Vanity Fair reports. "If you look over the last 25 years, through numerous administrations, we were on the path to a very big problem, a problem like this world has never seen", Trump said.

Trump tweeted: "Senator Bob Corker "begged" me to endorse him for re-election in Tennessee".

Sen. Bob Corker, the retiring Republican chair of the Senate foreign relations committee, has engaged in a heated back-and-forth with Trump for days now, including in an interview with The New York Times where he said that he feared Trump was steering the nation "on the path to World War III". Bob Corker and is now suggesting that the Tennessee Republican's conversation with The New York Times was recorded without his awareness. "I don't like normally talking to you on the record - I'm kidding you - but I will".

Corker punctuated this by telling the Times that "except for a few people, the vast majority of our caucus" - meaning, of the Senate's 52 Republicans - "understands what we're dealing with here". "I don't think so at all", he said.

Corker responded by saying that "It's a shame the White House has become an adult day care center". "Was made to sound a fool, and that's what I'm dealing with". Corker also helped tutor Trump on foreign affairs, and he in turn considered the senator as a possible running mate and secretary of state. 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.

President Donald Trump is not backing down from his feud with Sen. 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.
