Trump Falsely Claims Corker Was "Set Up" to Criticize Him During Interview

In particular, the editorial agreed with Corker that many people inside the White House see it as their patriotic duty to manage Trump and make sure he doesn't do something rash that would harm America's interests.

Sen. Bob Corker, the retiring Republican chair of the Senate foreign relations committee, has engaged in a heated back-and-forth with Trump for days now, including in an interview with The New York Times where he said that he feared Trump was steering the nation "on the path to World War III".

President Donald Trump is not backing down from his feud with Sen. "As long as we do our job, it's doesn't matter what the president does, only if he doesn't sign what we send to him", Grassley said."That's the only place where he's involved".

Corker had been a national security adviser to Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign and on Trump's short-list past year for both vice president and secretary of state.

Fellow Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, who spent his Columbus Day holiday golfing with the president, told reporters on Capitol Hill on Tuesday that he thinks Mr. Trump "was a little taken aback" by Corker's comments. Bob Corker, in which the Tennessee Republican called out the president's alarming "volatility". At the start of the Times' transcript of the interview, Corker says, "I understand we're on the record". Was made to sound a fool, and that's what I am dealing with!

"I know for a fact that every single day at the White House, it's a situation of trying to contain him", Corker said to the Times.

"He also wanted to be Secretary of State, I said 'NO THANKS.' He is also largely responsible for the horrendous Iran Deal", Trump tweeted. "You know he does it".
