President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Thursday to fire shots at Senator Bob Corker (Republican-Tennessee)…
Corker made comments about Trump last week, saying, “I do think there need to be some radical changes. The president has not yet … been able to demonstrate the stability, nor some of the competence that he needs to demonstrate in order to be successful, and we need for him to be successful.”
His comments came in response to Trump’s reaction to the “Unite The Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. He said that Trump has not shown that he understands what “made this nation great.”
In response, Trump tweeted, “Strange comment made by Bob Corker considering that he in constantly asking me whether or not he should run again in ’18. Tennessee not happy!”
Sara Huckabee, White House press secretary, quickly expressed her disapproval for Corker’s comments…
In a statement, Huckabee said, “I think that’s a ridiculous and outrageous claim and doesn’t dignify a response from this podium.”
Corkers comments certainly turned some heads based on his position in Congress, as well as his previous support for President Trump.
Corker won the election in 2006 and cruised to reelection in 2012; winning more than 64% of the vote. He was also briefly considered to be Trump’s Vice President before removing himself from consideration.
Trump has been in the news for firing shots at Republicans this week quite often. He attacked Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (Republican-Kentucky) and Speaker Paul Ryan (Republican-Wisconsin), as well as Arizona Senators Jeff Flake and John McCain.
What are your thoughts on the feud between Corker and President Trump?
