Trump/Corker spat
Republicans on Capitol Hill and in Tennessee are worrying about the reverberations of the escalating feud between President Trump and Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.). The spat between the president and the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee has included Trump insulting Corker’s height and accusing him of having “begged” for a presidential endorsement. And Corker has likened the White House to an “adult day care center.” At Tuesday’s White House briefing, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders accused Corker of having “rolled out the red carpet for the Iran deal.” The president described the nuclear accord as an “embarrassment” during a speech to the United Nations General Assembly last month and could he declared Iran to be noncompliant with the agreement. Other countries say it is in compliance. Sanders also was asked about a call from Trump’s former chief strategist, Stephen Bannon, for Corker to “resign immediately.” Sanders said, “That’s a decision for Sen. Corker and the people of Tennessee.” Republicans are perplexed by the back-and-forth, which is coming at a time when Trump is struggling to make progress on his legislative agenda and has been loosing support nationally.
