Republicans to Trump and Corker: Please just stop

President Donald Trump is not backing down from his feud with Sen. Bob Corker to end their increasingly ugly feud, fretting that it's threatening to further hobble the party's flagging agenda. Bob Corker and is now suggesting that the Tennessee Republican's conversation with The New York Times was recorded without his awareness.

Corker was a prominent supporter of Trump's 2016 campaign and one of the few Republicans with gravitas willing to embrace the reality television star's candidacy before he won the GOP nomination. And it's not Little. After the outbreak of violent protests in Charlottesville, Va., Corker said that he didn't feel that Trump had demonstrated the "competence" or "stability" needed for a successful presidency.

Every Republican senator up for re-election in 2018, with the exception of Sen.

He also knew the call was being recorded, telling the reporter that his staff was recording it, "and I hope you are, too". "Didn't have the guts to run!"

"The President called Senator Corker on Monday afternoon and asked him to reconsider his decision not to seek re-election and reaffirmed that he would have endorsed him, as he has said many times", Womack said in a statement.

Now what? James Fallows at the Atlantic writes that if Corker truly believes Trump might blunder his way into World War III, he has an obligation to "do something about it" by providing a crucial check on Trump's actions through his position as chair of the Foreign Relations Committee.

Corker responded by saying that "It's a shame the White House has become an adult day care center". "That's what helped I think put things in motion". "The people of this country want tax cuts, they want lower taxes".

Corker's comments have already infuriated Trump's base. Press Secretary Sean Spicer, Chief White House strategist Steve Bannon, and National Security Advisor Mike Flynn have all left.

"If Bob Corker has any honor, any decency, he should resign immediately", Bannon said in an interview with Fox News' Sean Hannity on Monday night.
