Trump has responded, mocking Corker's height. "And I hope you are, too". "He would have to concern anyone who cares about our nation". He added, "I know for a fact that every single day at the White House, it's a situation of [senior administration officials] trying to contain him". "There are a few exceptions, but I hate them!' Two senior Republican officials said Chief of Staff John Kelly is miserable in his job and is remaining out of a sense of duty to keep Trump from making some sort of disastrous decision".

Corker fired back, saying Trump's claim was entirely false and that it was a "shame the White House has become an adult day care center". "Didn't have the guts to run!" Bob Corker of having worked with Democrats and the Obama administration to make the Iran nuclear deal happen.

So who IS Bob Corker?

Trump said Tuesday that he didn't think his feud with Corker would imperil his tax cut plan.

Trump labeling Corker "liddle" is a throwback to the 2016 campaign, when he gave Sen. She also voiced ambivalence about calls from Trump allies for the Tennessee Republican to resign. "The party needs to sublimate its divisions, get mainstream Republicans to the polls, and persuade the Trump base to cast ballot for non-Trump Republicans", he writes.

"I think it's going to be fun to work with him, especially now that he's announced that he's not running for reelection, because I think it sort of unleashes him to do whatever and say whatever he wants to say", Mulvaney said on NBC's "Meet the Press".
