Tiff with Corker won't hurt tax push, plan changes coming

Tiff with Corker won't hurt tax push, plan changes coming

Ron Bonjean, a Republican strategist with close ties to Congress and the White House, said he thinks most Republican senators will get in line despite their concerns over Trump's treatment of their colleagues. And if the American body politic doesn't experience a complete meltdown this week, perhaps others will notice.

Corker tweeted over the weekend that the Trump White House was an "adult daycare center" and said in an interview with the Times that Trump risked setting the country on a "path to World War Three".

Trump was asked about whether his dispute with Sen.

As one White House official put it, "You have to just move the conversation along to something else".

"I'm not undermining", the president said. "Was made to sound a fool, and that's what I am dealing with!" he tweeted. "But if he did [say] that, I guess we'll have to compare IQ tests".

One person close to the president, who requested anonymity to give a candid assessment of the situation, said the battle with Corker won't help Trump get a much-needed legislative win.

Liberians Vote for President Sirleaf's Successor
Liberia was one of three West African states badly hit by the 2014-15 Ebola outbreak which left more than 11,300 people dead. Joseph Boakai, who has been vice president for almost 12 years, is running for the ruling Unity Party.

During a brief exchange with reporters ahead of a meeting with former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, Trump insisted: "I didn't undercut anybody. I think we're well on the way".

Nick Bilton, special correspondent for Vanity Fair, argues that if what Corker says is true, the congressional leadership of the Republican Party should act accordingly.

He has repeatedly condemned GOP lawmakers who have failed to repeal and replace Obamacare despite the party's seven-year promise to do so. The president claimed corker "Begged" him for an endorsement and "didn't have the guts to run". Trump responded to his top diplomat's revelation a day later, writing on Twitter that "I told Rex Tillerson, our wonderful Secretary of State, that he is wasting his time trying to negotiate with Little Rocket Man". "The people of this country want tax cuts, they want lower taxes".

The president had more on his mind Tuesday morning. NBC also reported Tillerson came close to resigning from the State Department last summer, although Tillerson and other members of the Trump administration have denied this.

So now comes Trump's Tuesday retort and the inference of skullduggery by a paper whose legitimacy he so craves and so often belittles when not receiving it.

"I have great respect for the office of the president, and I don't want to detract from that great respect I have for the office of the president - the office", Grassley said.
