The feud that erupted between President Trump and Senator Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) has confused numerous political veterans in Washington.

Trump pointed the finger at the previous United States presidential administrations, which he said were on "the wrong path".

Trump tweeted: "Senator Bob Corker "begged" me to endorse him for re-election in Tennessee".

"The Failing [New York Times] set Liddle' Bob Corker up by recording his conversation", Trump tweeted out. Bob Corker and is now suggesting that the Tennessee Republican's conversation with The New York Times was recorded without his awareness. His recent criticism led to Trump tweeting Sunday that he denied the senator his endorsement and rejected him as a candidate for secretary of state, blaming Corker for passage of the Iran nuclear deal and adding that the senator "didn't have the guts" to run for reelection.

"Every single day at the White House", Corker said, "it's a situation of trying to contain him". Hence, I would fully expect Corker to be a negative voice and stand in the way of our great agenda.

On Oct. 9, Corker stated that Trump had intentionally made inaccurate statements on a regular basis.

"He concerns me", Corker said. Trump later picked the much taller Rex Tillerson for the job. Corker had been an ally and personal friend to the president before they developed a public feud on social media.

Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon is ready to go to war for President Donald Trump, starting with a Republican Senate primaries in 2018. One of the Senate's most committed deficit hawks and outspoken members on budgetary issues, Corker already has expressed concerns with the Trump administration's proposal on tax cuts, and his vote will be key to any deal getting done. However, Trump is alleged to have remarked to associates that Corker, whose height is 5-foot-7, was too short for the top diplomat position.
