Bob Corker Slams Trump, Here’s What The Senator Really Thinks Of The President

GOP Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee, who was once a Donald Trump ally, slammed the president on Wednesday while defending Gens. John Kelly and James Mattis as well Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

Corker referred to Kelly, Mattis and Tillerson as the “people that help separate our country from chaos.” When asked if he was using the word “chaos” to referr to Trump Corker said:

(Mattis, Kelly and Tillerson) work very well together to make sure the policies we put forth around the world are sound and coherent. There are other people within the administration that don’t. I hope they stay because they’re valuable to the national security of our nation.”

The sitting Republican chairman of the Senate foreign relations committee just suggested that if Tillerson left his post the country would be in a lot of danger because Trump pushes policies that are not always “sound” or “coherent.”

Corker also shared his opinion about Trump undermining Tillerson.

Trump blasted Tillerson on a Sunday morning tweet:

“I told Rex Tillerson, our wonderful Secretary of State, that he is wasting his time trying to negotiate with Little Rocket Man.”

Corker said that Tillerson is “in an incredibly frustrating place,” adding: “He ends up not being supported in the way I would hope a secretary of state would be supported. … He’s in a very trying situation — trying to solve many of the world’s problems without the support and help I’d like to see him have.”
