Bob Corker, sending an unmistakable signal to other Republicans that public criticism of President Trump will be met with a fierce public scolding.
The Tennessee senator added that the majority of Senate Republicans privately had reservations about the president. Trump was referring to the interview Corker gave to the New York Times in which the senator likened the Trump White House to a "reality show" and suggested that reckless comments from the president could lead to World War III.
"I think I've had four conversations with him about my re-election. he encouraged me to run and said he would do a rally and endorse me", Corker said.
"A lot of people think that there is some kind of "good cop, bad cop" act underway, but that's just not true", Corker told the Times. Bob Corker is apparently still on, based on the new nickname the president bestowed upon Corker Tuesday morning.
The feud between Corker and Trump had escalated this weekend when the President tweeted that the outgoing senator "begged" for his endorsement before declining to run for re-election.
Corker, the former mayor of Chattanooga, has said in recent days that Trump behaves as if he's still on a reality TV show, that White House aides have to run an adult day care, and Corker suggested Trump's bluster and threats toward North Korea could set the US on a path to World War III.
"The vast majority of our caucus understand what we're dealing with here. they understand the volatility that we are dealing with and the tremendous amount of work that it takes from people around [Trump] to keep him in the middle of the road", Corker continued. When Corker later called Trump to tell him that he had chose to retire - a decision Corker made on his 65th birthday, August 24 - the president expressed disappointment, the congressional official said.
Some of Trump's allies, including former White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon, have called on him to resign.
