Trump in Twitter feud with former ally

White House spokesman Sarah Huckabee Sanders had previously said Corker's "chaos" comment was off the mark. Someone obviously missed their shift this morning. Trump claimed that Corker, who recently announced that he would not be seeking re-election to the Senate, had begged from Trump's endorsement and dropped out because he declined. This person said the president also reaffirmed that he would have endorsed Corker had he made a decision to run again - which, this person added, was not the first time that Trump had extended such an offer of support.

"Thus, I would completely anticipate that Corker will be a negative voice and obstruct our incredible plan".

Mr. Trump also wrote that Mr. Corker wanted the position of secretary of State, but that Mr. Trump declined to offer it.

On Wednesday, Corker praised Secretary of State Rex Tillerson amid reports that Tillerson openly characterized Trump as a "moron" in July.

President Trump on Sunday ripped increasingly vocal critic Sen.

Trump's criticism of the senator of his own party comes after Bob Corker repeatedly criticized the U.S. president's policy, in particular, in regard to the response to the violence at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. "I have difficulty putting that much energy into discussing this budget document because this is some of the most meaningless work that we do here", Corker said with a sigh.

The highly unusual exchange seemed to come out of nowhere on a rainy Sunday morning that Trump began in the White House before skies cleared and he headed to a nearby golf course. "Thin-skinned, vindictive - all of those things that we saw during the campaign that for whatever reason the conservative movement chose to embrace, enable, or rationalize - now we are seeing it playing out in the White House", he continued. The two held a private meeting last month where Mr Trump pushed him to run, according to the Associated Press.

"He is also largely responsible for the horrendous Iran Deal!".

Corker, who is the administrator of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, reported a month ago that he would not look for reelection in 2018. The president has previously tangled with other Republican senators, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky and John McCain and Jeff Flake of Arizona.
