Trump calls out Sen. Corker in tweet, says 'Tennessee not happy'

Cillizza compared it to Trump's attacks on Sen.

By contrast, the president has singled out few Democrats, saving his criticism for their leadership.

According to Politico, earlier in July, Trump tried to convince Senate Foreign Relations Chairman Bob Corker that the latest bill imposing sweeping sanctions on Russian Federation was unconstitutional and that it would damage his presidency.

The president's early-morning tweet appeared to suggest that Corker was in political trouble in his home state. The bill cleared Congress overwhelmingly last month and Trump grudgingly signed it on August 2.

"Shortly before 9 a.m., and after a series of Trump tweets, Grassley tweeted, "@realDonald Trump #hurricane keep on top of hurricane Harvey don't mke same mistake Pres Bush made w Katrina". "Tennessee not happy!" Trump wrote over Twitter August 25, according to Fox News.

"It's OK to be critical of your party leader and your president, but I think there's a protocol and an etiquette that he has forgotten, especially for somebody who is so sensitive as Sen". Jeff Flake and South Carolina Sen. Lindsey O. Graham, R-S.C., a longtime Trump punching bag. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska).

Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked about Corker's comments during a press briefing Thursday.

Corker, the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, told local reporters and Rotary Club attendees last Thursday that there needs to be some "radical changes" in the White House for Trump to succeed, News Channel 9 reported.

"I think that's a ridiculous and outrageous claim and doesn't even require a response from this podium", she said. "And we need for him to be successful".

The tweet is in response to comments made by Corker in response to Trump's statements on the white nationalist protest Charlottesville, in which he said "both sides" were responsible for the violence that killed one counterprotester and two police officers. "I don't know that there's probably anybody in the United States Senate that talks to him more about issues that matter, not only to our nation but to the world".

"They have great respect for on another", Alexander said, "so my reaction is maybe it's time for them to play another round of golf together".
