The White House escalated President Trump's feud with Sen. Trump reacted by tweeting that Corker had decided not to run for reelection in 2018 because the president refused to endorse Corker. "Didn't have the guts to run!"

- If Tennessee Senator Bob Corker thought retirement might be the easy way out of Washington, he may have to reconsider his rather surprising decision. Bob Corker is apparently still on, based on the new nickname the president bestowed upon Corker Tuesday morning. I said "NO" and he dropped out (said he could not win without.my endorsement).

"Every single day at the White House", Corker said, "it's a situation of trying to contain him".

Corker's comments to the Times and on Twitter prompted criticism from the administration and even criticism from fellow Republicans in the Senate. This would be the first in a series of highly orchestrated steps that White House, State Department and congressional officials - primarily Corker, as chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee - have been planning for months.

Prasad further said the police were looking at a family property dispute, which might have led to the murders. Over 40 persons of the same family stay in the two-storey building, which is part of Jindal Oil Mills.

Corker was a prominent supporter of Trump's 2016 campaign and one of the few Republicans with gravitas willing to embrace the reality television star's candidacy before he won the GOP nomination. "I think we are well on our way". "The people of this country want tax cuts, they want lower taxes".

Some of Trump's allies, including former White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon, have called on him 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.

Bob Corker of Tennessee asserted during an interview that the majority of his Republican colleagues privately believe that President Donald Trump is prone to making dishonest statements.

"I don't think he appreciates that when the president of the United States speaks and says the things that he does, the impact that it has around the world, especially in the region that he's addressing", he added.
