Corker On Trump Lying: 'Everyone Knows He Does It'

Corker On Trump Lying: 'Everyone Knows He Does It'

"He would have to concern anyone who cares about our nation".

"You know he does it, everyone knows he does it, but he does", Corker added.

The explosive comments not only breach what had been one of Trump's few personal relationships on Capitol Hill, but also jeopardize the president's legislative priorities.

Mr Trump's plan, unveiled at the end of September, includes swingeing tax cuts for the rich which will make it hard to balance the budget if he follows through on populist policies such as building a border wall with Mexico.

The feud between Corker and Trump had escalated this weekend when the President tweeted that the outgoing senator "begged" for his endorsement before declining to run for re-election. "Someone obviously missed their shift this morning".

The Tennessee Republican, who recently announced he would not seek reelection in 2018, has become increasingly critical of the president in recent months.

"If you look over the last 25 years, through numerous administrations, we were on the path to a very big problem, a problem like this world has never seen", Trump said. Corker told reporters that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and White House Chief of Staff John Kelly "are those people that help separate our country from chaos". But the prospect of a productive working relationship with Trump going forward is slipping by the day, although Corker is likely to keep voting for much of his agenda. "I don't think so at all", he said. "Was made to sound a fool, and that's what I'm dealing with".

"I think we're well on our way, ' Trump said of Republican efforts to craft the bill. Didn't have the guts to run!"

"Corker and the people of Tennessee", Sanders said. "I understand we're on the record".

Apparently unwilling to let Corker's "adult day care center" barb be the last word, Trump tweeted Sunday afternoon that Corker was an ineffective senator and could not "get the job done".

Republicans hope Corker will ultimately vote for tax reform in hopes of boosting economic growth.

The tax push has been dogged by delays and distractions such as Trump's criticisms of his own party's leaders, including Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan.
