Trump vs. Corker
Donald Trump and Tennessee US Senator Bob Corker are back to exchanging tweets. Two weeks ago Corker announced he will not be a candidate for re-election to his senate seat. And that decision promoted a Sunday morning tweet from the president that Corker “didn't have the guts to run." But Todd Womack, Corker's chief of staff, said the “didn't have the guts to run” accusations are false. Instead of Corker begging for the president’s endorsement, Womack said Trump called the senator early last week and asked him to reconsider his decision not to seek re-election, saying he would endorse Corker and help him campaign. The president says Corker asked for his support for re-election, “I said no and he dropped out.” In response to the Presidents tweet, Corker said "It's a shame the White House has become an adult day care center. Someone obviously missed their shift this morning. “ During Trump's presidential campaign Corker was seen as a close adviser and ally. Corker has repeatedly said he was offered the vice presidency but declined. After Trump's election, Corker has publicly critiqued the administration. He said the White House was in a "downward spiral" after reports emerged the president had disclosed classified information to Russian officials. More recently, Corker questioned the president's competency to lead.
