The Latest: Corker says Congress should decide tax cuts
24 October, 2017, 18:17
"The president has great difficulty with the truth on many issues", Corker said in a CNN interview at the Capitol, where Trump was due to meet with senators later in the day to seek consensus on a tax reform plan.
Trump and Corker are scheduled to participate in a policy luncheon Tuesday.
The President had earlier accused Corker, who is retiring, of blocking his party's efforts on tax cuts.
Trump has a mixed record from his forays to Capitol Hill.
Donald Trump has engaged in a furious exchange of tweets and counter-tweets with a Republican senator, saying he "couldn't get elected dog catcher" while the congressman fired back that the president was "utterly untruthful".
"The president undermines our secretary of state [and] raises tensions in the area by virtue of the tweets that he sends out", Corker said. The Republican is the chairman of the US Senate Committee on Foreign Relations.
While it isn't immediately clear what prompted Trump's latest Twitter barb, it's likely that he was responding to an interview Corker gave with Good Morning America on Tuesday morning where the senator defended his comments earlier this month where he said it was a "shame" that the White House "has become an adult daycare center". "I'm glad the President is coming to lunch, because I've have long believed it's best to settle these things in person and I hope that they can get a chance to do that".
The stinging verbal blows marked the latest salvo in what is now a full-blown public war of words between the president and one of his party's most important lieutenants in Congress, a measured Republican who has vast sway over foreign policy issues as well as taxes.
"#AlertTheDaycareStaff", tweeted Bob Corker, an outspoken Republican critic of Mr Trump.
When asked if the President is a national security threat, Corker told NBC that he needs to be contained by members of his Cabinet, namely, Secretary of Defense James Mattis, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, and White House chief of staff John Kelly.
Sen. Corker responded, "Same untruths from an utterly untruthful president". You are taking us on a path to combat and so I want to support these efforts that are underway.
