He added, "I know for a fact that every single day at the White House, it's a situation of [senior administration officials] trying to contain him".
WSJ weighs in: The conservative editorial page of the Wall Street Journal thinks Corker spoke the truth about the president's "lack of discipline, short fuse, narcissism and habit of treating even foreign heads of state as if they are Rosie O'Donnell", and it hopes other top Republicans follow Corker's lead because it might actually help. "Someone obviously missed their shift this morning".
On Oct. 9, Corker stated that Trump had intentionally made inaccurate statements on a regular basis.
The White House on Tuesday escalated its feud with Sen.
On Oct. 10, Trump took to social media to assert that Corker had been duped into criticizing him. I said "NO" and he dropped out (said he could not win without.my endorsement).
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders used her news briefing to tear into Corker, saying he had "rolled out the red carpet" for the Iran nuclear deal. "Didn't have the guts to run!"
Womack said Trump has repeatedly offered to support Corker, and as recently as last week asked the senator to change his mind and run for reelection.
"I know they're recording it", Corker said of his aides who were also on the line with him and a Times reporter. "The people of this country want tax cuts, they want lower taxes".
Corker warned that Trump was viewed as a threat to the United States national security and global stability warning that he could prompt "World War III".
"Look, except for a few people, the vast majority of our caucus understands what we're dealing with here", Corker told the Times.
Corker also looks to play a key role in the upcoming debate over taxes. The Foreign Relations chairman has already said he won't vote for any tax bill that increases the federal deficit.
Senate Republicans are imploring President Donald Trump and Sen.
