President Trump claims Senator Corker "begged" for endorsement — Twitter battle

Cooper: Berke sounds like a candidate

Mr Corker hit back that the White House had become an "adult day care centre".

Bob Corker on Twitter Sunday morning, saying the senator had "begged" the president to lend his support for this re-election. "He additionally needed to be Secretary of State, I said 'Pass.' He is likewise to a great extent in charge of the shocking Iran Deal!"

Trump, possessing the restraint of a toddler, lashed out on Twitter, claiming Corker only decided not to seek reelection in 2018 after failing to secure the president's endorsement. Although the quote that included several high profile advisors in the White House was ambiguous, Trump quickly responded with the assumption that the comments were directed at his job performance. "Someone obviously missed their shift this morning", Corker tweeted just moments ago.

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.

Sunday was not the first time Trump has tweeted about Corker and his apparent waffling about whether or not he should seek another Senate term.

The tweets came after Corker, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said Wednesday that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and other top administration officials "help separate us from chaos".

But a prominent, anti-establishment Republican has since announced she will run for Mr Corker's seat in 2018 - and has highlighted her support for Mr Trump.

The senator told The Associated Press in a story published Sunday that he sees flaws in the Iran deal that Trump has long criticized, but doesn't believe it should be abandoned. The President tried to disrespect a United States Senator, and he got his head handed to him.

The growing hostility stands in stark contrast to the 2016 campaign, when Corker was under consideration to be Trump's running mate.

In his tweets, the president said Mr. Corker - who previously has questioned Mr. Trump's competence - wanted his endorsement for reelection, but he refused. The tax overhaul is a priority for Mr. Trump and congressional Republicans.
