Senator Bob Corker thinks that Trump is treating his office the wrong way. He said that the President is treating it like a Reality show. Furthermore he thinks his threats could lead to another World war.
Bob Corker is the Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
Corker who is Republican joins a list of other Party members disgusted with Trump. The President has found himself at odds with other colleagues.
This is due to some of his ideas towards legislature and other bad practices. Another issue stems from the inability to work along with Trump.
The President at times operates like a one man army or dictator. Not allowing anyone to tell him what to do.
“He concerns me,” Mr. Corker added. “He would have to concern anyone who cares about our nation.”
Things got heated after Trump accused Corker via twitter. Trump tweeted that Corker “didn’t have the guts” that is why he isn’t running.
Corker decided not to run to regain his seat. He also answered Trump’s tweet with his own. He tweeted “it’s a shame the White House has become an adult day care center. Someone obviously missed their shift this morning.”
Trump claimed that Corker begged him to endorse him. The President claimed “I said ‘NO’ and he dropped out (said he could not win without my endorsement).”
Trump also claimed that Corker wanted to be Secretary of State. He wrote that he said no thanks.
Corker said the Trump is lying. He said that Trump is the one who asked him to run. He said that Trump said he would endorse him if he did.
Corker claims that the many of Trump’s statements are untrue. He believes the President should stop lying to everyone with his tweets.
“I don’t know why the President tweets out things that are not true,” he said. “You know he does it, everyone knows he does it, but he does.”
“When I told him that that just wasn’t in the cards, he said, ‘You know, if you run, I’ll endorse you.’ I said, ‘Mr. President, it’s just not in the cards; I’ve already made a decision.’ So then we began talking about other candidates that were running.”
It looks as though this is a he said I said scenario. Who is telling the truth and who isn’t?
This looks like a situation that you stay away from and wait. What is certain is that Corker said he will not be running again.
Another certainty is that Trump isn’t pleased that he decided to quit.
Corker mentioned Rex Tillerson, JohnKelly and Jim Mattis. Senior staff of the President, men close to him.
He said “as long as there are people like that around him who are able to talk him down when he gets spun up. You know, calm him down and continue to work with him before a decision gets made, I think we’ll be fine.”
