Corker turns down ambassadorship
Senator Bob Corker Republican of Tennessee has turned down an offer from President Donald Trump to be the US ambassador to Australia. Corker is the retiring chair of the Senate foreign relations committee. Corker said he had spoken to both Trump and secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, about the position over the past three weeks. But he had decided against accepting the position, saying: “At the end of the day though … it just felt like it wasn’t the right step.” Corker has had a tumultuous relationship with Trump. The two-term Republican was an early Trump supporter and had been a candidate to be both vice-president and secretary of state. But he has become a vocal Trump critic, saying the White House had “become an adult day care center” and told the New York Times that Trump could put the US on “the path to world war III”. In response, Trump called Corker “Liddle Bob”.
