He can only afford to lose two GOP senators on the tax bill, and some Republicans worry the president's spat with Corker will stunt momentum behind tax reform. Those don't exist. Republicans are talking a big game in public because they understand that the public doesn't like Donald Trump, but at the end of the day they're going to side with him every single time they get the opportunity.
"I have a lot of respect for Sen".
Days after the Republican-controlled Congress took important steps toward advancing tax legislation, Trump's Twitter attacks on Senator Corker over the weekend threatened to further alienate the president from other key Republicans such as Sen. Corker observed that Trump has "not yet been able to demonstrate the stability nor some of the competence that he needs to demonstrate in order to be successful".
"He wasn't questioning the secretary of state's intelligence", Sanders answered.
It was not clear what Trump meant when he said The Times set up Corker by recording him.
President Trump first said in July that he would no longer allow transgender Americans to serve in the military. "They can't get anything done over there".
Bannon said Monday that Corker's comments illustrate how establishment Republicans feel about Trump.
Trump's sparring with members of his own party and perceived allies also extended to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.
"But that's not what the president said", Yingst hit back, leading Sanders to repeat that the United States is the highest corporate taxed nation of the developed economies in the world.
A week earlier, Corker questioned how Republicans could possibly deny the raw sentiment that was pushing Trump closer to the nomination. When asked Wednesday about the "moron" reports, he said, "We don't deal with that kind of petty nonsense".
"We are declaring war on the Republican establishment", Bannon said on Fox News. The president is likely to bristle at Corker's suggestion that Kelly is a sitter for the president, the person said, and that could lessen Kelly's influence or, ultimately, shorten his tenure. Bob Corker could be replaced by a solid conservative.
