Republicans to Trump and Corker: Please just stop

STAND ALONE

With tensions running high on the Korean Peninsula, a majority of Americans say that U.S. President Donald Trump's war of words with Pyongyang is making the situation worse, a new poll said on Wednesday.

"I don't know why the president tweets out things that are not true", Corker told The New York Times.

Both Trump and Corker entered politics after careers as business executives, both in real estate and construction, and their shared backgrounds gave them a level of mutual understanding at a time when few in Congress can claim to understand the president's motivations.

Corker, who is not seeking re-election in 2018, disputed Trump's version of events.

A transcript of the conversation, however, shows that the newspaper did not set Corker up and that the senator was well aware that he was on the record. Even after Trump won, Corker was on the list of possibilities for Secretary of State. I said "NO" and he dropped out (said he could not win without.my endorsement). "I stand by my statement". "Corker and the people of Tennessee", Sanders said.

According to New York Times reporter Jonathan Martin, who interviewed Corker, the senator had two congressional aides on the phone call with him who were also recording the conversation. "Didn't have the guts to run!" One of the Senate's most committed deficit hawks and outspoken members on budgetary issues, Corker already has expressed concerns with the Trump administration's proposal on tax cuts, and his vote will be key to any deal getting done. "The party needs to sublimate its divisions, get mainstream Republicans to the polls, and persuade the Trump base to cast ballot for non-Trump Republicans", he writes.

When Obama didn't do that, Corker helped fellow senators write legislation that subjected the global accord to periodic congressional review. Corker what led him to make that statement.
