  • Corker’s feud with Trump erupted Sunday after the senator announced he would not be seeking a third term in 2018

In his speech at the United Nations General Assembly last month, Trump threatened that the United States "will have no choice but to totally destroy" DPRK if forced to defend itself or its allies.

Corker, who is not seeking re-election in 2018, disputed Trump's version of events.

Corker fired back, saying Trump's claim was entirely false and that it was a "shame the White House has become an adult day care center". Trump later picked the much taller Rex Tillerson for the job.

He could have been referring to any of a few dozen mercurial outbursts, but likely the trigger was a Saturday tweet in which Trump asserted that "only one thing will work" to rein in North Korea - a statement that could only be read as a direct threat to strike Pyongyang militarily.

Asked if Corker should resign, Sanders said that decision is not for the White House to make. "I think we are well on our way".

Trump labeling Corker "liddle" is a throwback to the 2016 campaign, when he gave Sen. "The people of this country want tax cuts, they want lower taxes". Corker also helped tutor Trump on foreign affairs, and he in turn considered the senator as a possible running mate and secretary of state.

Known for his blunt commentary, Corker had long softened any public criticism of Trump or his administration with carefully worded praise.

President Donald Trump's public feud with a top Republican on Capitol Hill has entered the name-calling phase.

In excerpts of the interview, Corker acknowledges that his conversation with the Times was "on the record", an agreement that his remarks can be published and attributed, and not a private discussion.

Corker urged Trump to visit Alabama and campaign alongside unusual in the closing days of the runoff campaign, and the president now partly blames Corker for encouraging him to get involved in a contest that has hurt his political standing, according to a person close to Trump and familiar with the dynamics.
