Trump says he doesn't believe feud with Corker hurts tax-reform chances

Trump says he doesn't believe feud with Corker hurts tax-reform chances

The libertarian-minded senator from Kentucky, whom Trump once called "truly weird", has, according to reports, endeared himself to the president.

GOP trouble: At the National Journal, political analyst Charlie Cook of the Cook Political Report writes that Trump went to a "darker place" in his Corker criticism, and he now thinks the GOP majority is in jeopardy not only in the Senate but in the House. The senator "was made to sound like a fool", Trump said.

Trump's tweet Tuesday alleged that Corker was "set up" by "the failing" New York Times in a recorded interview Sunday.

As the Republican Party grapples with an identity crisis, its lawmakers are each honing their own methods for dealing with an unorthodox-and volatile-president.

"I don't think so", Trump said in the Oval Office when asked if the back-and-forth would affect the tax effort. "I would encourage them both to stop what they're doing and get focused on what we need to be doing". "Someone obviously missed their shift this morning".

It's unclear what spurred Trump's Twitter attack on Corker.

"We have troops in Afghanistan, in the northwest Pacific and Korea, we have a major problem that could be like World War I, in the South China Sea, in the Persian Gulf, we have American lives at risk every day".

"Corker is an establishment Republican", observes Tom Pauken, who formerly oversaw the Texas Republican Party and frequently comments on politics to OneNewsNow. He also knew the call was being recorded, telling the reporter that his staff was recording it, "and I hope you are, too". Some outlets point to Corker's comments that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and other top administration officials are separating the country from chaos.

The "failing" Times "set Liddle' Bob Corker up by recording his conversation", Trump claimed in a tweet. Bob Corker could be replaced by a solid conservative.

Trump's criticism of the Tennessee Republican drew a response in which Corker referred to the White House as an "adult day care".

Trump and Corker have been feuding since August, when Corker questioned Trump's competence to lead.
