The NYT Just Released Audio Of Bob Corker Blasting Trump… It’s Brutal
The New York Times released audio footage from an interview with Republican Senator Bob Corker on Monday, showing the concerns the Senator has over Donald Trump.
“Look, except for a few people, the vast majority of our caucus understands what we’re dealing with here,” Corker said of Trump. “Of course they understand the volatility that we’re dealing with and the tremendous amount of work that it takes by people around him to keep him in the middle of the road.”
“He concerns me,” Corker added. “He would have to concern anyone who cares about our nation.”
Corker went on to raise concern that Trump is running the west wing as if he was running an episode of “The Apprentice.”
He also raised concern that Trump is putting us “on the path to World War III” with his handling of North Korea.
“A lot of people think that there is some kind of ‘good cop, bad cop’ act underway, but that’s just not true,” Corker said.
“I know he has hurt, in several instances, he’s hurt us as it relates to negotiations that were underway by tweeting things out,” Corker said of Trump’s notorious Twitter habit.
The Times first published the interview on Sunday, without any audio. Trump responded to the interview via Twitter.
“Senator Bob Corker ‘begged’ me to endorse him for re-election in Tennessee. I said ‘NO’ and he dropped out (said he could not win without my endorsement),” Trump tweeted. “He also wanted to be Secretary of State, I said “NO THANKS.” He is also largely responsible for the horrendous Iran Deal!”
Corker fired back at the president, posting on Twitter, “It’s a shame the White House has become an adult day care center. Someone obviously missed their shift this morning.”
