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

Trump Falsely Claims Corker Was

"If Bob Corker has any honor, any decency, he should resign immediately".

Trump accuses Iran of supporting terrorism and says the 2015 deal does not do enough to block its path to acquire nuclear weapons.

"All you have to do is have to take a look".

Trump told Forbes in an interview published Tuesday that he thought the recent report Tillerson once called him a moron was "fake news".

Corker's comments to the Times and on Twitter prompted criticism from the administration and even criticism from fellow Republicans in the Senate. With Republicans holding 52 seats in the 100-member Senate, only a few defections could sink a bill - as happened to their failed efforts to repeal Obamacare. Corker then spoke with The New York Times and unleashed a torrent of cricitism, suggested Trump "may be setting the us on the path to World War III".

Said Trump: "The Failing @nytimes set Liddle' Bob Corker up by recording his conversation". The senator "was made to sound like a fool", Trump said. Trump tweeted on Tuesday.

President Donald Trump's wide-ranging tweets Tuesday morning pushed for policy changes with far-reaching implications, including tax law revisions to penalize the National Football League over players' anthem protests and executive action to replace Obamacare.

But this is the opposite of what happened, according to Corker, who explained to the Times, "When I told him that that just wasn't in the cards, he said, 'You know, if you run, I'll endorse you.' I said, 'Mr". Corker's staff also recorded the call, and he said he wanted The Times to do the same.

Trump then confirmed Burkle is not a fan of the current NAFTA deal, a trade agreement between the United States, Mexico, and Canada that was signed in 1994 by then President Bill Clinton.

"The president never implied that the secretary of state was not incredibly intelligent".

Corker, however, criticized Trump for his response to the violent clashes between white supremacists and anti-protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia in August. "I said "NO" and he dropped out". His meeting with the president comes as Mr. Trump's relationship with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is in an awkward position.

One of Bannon's first targets is Corker, who is retiring next year. Current and former Trump employees, such as Barbara Res, told Politico they often attempted to forestall the president's proposals and buy some time to talk him out of them. I said "NO" and he dropped out (said he could not win endorsement).

"Like the senator, they wanted to ensure his extraordinary charges were precisely captured", Martin wrote.

It's a shame the White House has become an adult day care center.

WASHINGTON - President Trump escalated his attack on Sen.

But by Tuesday afternoon, The Times released audio of Corker explicitly asking for his bombshell interview to be recorded.

"He concerns me", Corker said of the president.
