Senator Bob Corker, the Republican chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, stated in an interview on Sunday that President Trump risks setting the nation “on the path to World War Three”. Treating his office like “a reality show” with reckless threats toward other countries is a clear threat to national security.
It is a harsh rebuke of a Republican president by a member of his own party. But Senator Corker said he was alarmed about a president who acts “like he’s doing The Apprentice or something.”
Senator Corker said nearly every Senate Republican shares his concerns about President Trump.
He concerns me. He would have to concern anyone who cares about our nation.”
The Tennessee veteran Senator also raised concerns about the President’s use of Twitter as it relates to foreign policy and international relations. Without specific incidents, he stated President Trump repeatedly undermines diplomacy with his Twitter posts.
“I know he has hurt, in several instances, he’s hurt us as it relates to negotiations that were underway by tweeting things out,” Senator Corker said.
Senator Corker’s comments came on a day of insults passed between the president and the Tennessee senator. It began on Sunday morning when President Trump, posting on Twitter, accused Mr. Corker, in a series of Tweets, of begging for his endorsement and deciding not to run for re-election because he “didn’t have the guts.”
Senator Corker responded.
It’s a shame the White House has become an adult day care center. Someone obviously missed their shift this morning.
