Sen Corker Pops Off At Trump Over Tax Cut Effort

Senator Bob Corker (R-TN) attacked President Trump over the way the president is trying to promote his tax cut plan.

Corker said the White House should let Congress work through the process and described Trump’s upcoming visit to Capitol Hill to sell the plan as a “photo op.”

In predictable fashion, President Trump fired back at Corker.

Bloomberg reports:

Trump is scheduled to meet with lawmakers on Capitol Hill on Tuesday to discuss the tax-overhaul effort, a move Corker referred to as a “photo op.” Asked if the president should simply steer clear of the matter, Corker answered affirmatively.

“I would recommend that based on recent history and just interactions,” he said. “I think that’s the best way for us to have success.”

Trump fired back, saying Corker was unpopular in his home state and was obstructing the effort to cut taxes.

In a Tweet, President Trump hit back at Corker saying:

Bob Corker, who helped President O give us the bad Iran Deal & couldn’t get elected dog catcher in Tennessee, is now fighting Tax Cuts….

Earlier in the month, Corker called the White House an “Adult Day Care Center.”

Corker decided to continue his feud with the president by criticizing President Trump on NBC News and by doing so he is exposing his personal agenda against the president.
