'Tennessee not happy!' Trump attacks another GOP senator who questioned his fitness

As observers on the left, right and center have noticed, the President's assaults on members of his own party are nearly certainly counterproductive in terms of getting his legislative priorities passed.

"He has not demonstrated that he understands what has made this nation great and what it is today", Corker said in the aftermath of Trump claiming "many sides" were to blame for the violence in Charlottesville.

Trump's defense of white nationalists following a violent rally in Virginia that left a protester dead caused Corker to issue a blistering rebuke, raising questions about the president's stability and competence and demanding "radical changes" in the White House. Already there are indications that the populist wing of the Republican party in Tennessee — which includes the most ardent Trump supporters — doesn't like it one bit.

According to Politico, earlier in July, Trump tried to convince Senate Foreign Relations Chairman Bob Corker that the latest bill imposing sweeping sanctions on Russian Federation was unconstitutional and that it would damage his presidency. Trump adds, "Tennessee not happy!"

Olivier Ntcham wants to face PSG in Champions League group stage
The club from Baku following the debut in the Europa League is preparing for the premiere to start in the Champions League. Either way, Spurs are nearly guaranteed to go up against one of the really big boys in the group stages.

Corker said last week that he talks with the president and White House officials as much as anyone in the U.S. Senate and President Trump has hardly made any major decisions without previously talking with the Tennessee Republican. At a Tuesday night rally in Phoenix, Trump went after - though not by name - Arizona's USA senators, John McCain and Jeff Flake, both Republicans. Former state Rep. Joe Carr now says he might run against Corker next year. Lamar Alexander in 2014 and U.S. Rep. Diane Black a year ago. He's the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and was once considered to be Trump's secretary of state. And last week, Trump slammed Sen.

"It's OK to be critical of your party leader and your president, but I think there's a protocol and an etiquette that he has forgotten, especially for somebody who is so sensitive as Sen". I know that for a fact.

The earlier, private calls offer more evidence of Trump's uneasy relationship with congressional Republicans.

Green announced in early August that he did not intend to run against Corker in 2018 based on how "everything sits right now". "I think the president was rather restrained in his tweet [about Corker] and was absolutely correct".
