Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) in a flurry of tweets Sunday morning, blasting him for not having "the guts" to run for re-election following news that the Republican senator is set to leave office in 2018.
Senator Corker and President Trump during the 2016 election campaign.
That word comes a short time after Trump had claimed on Twitter that Corker had "begged" for a presidential endorsement, and when Trump said "NO", Corker "dropped out".
Contrary to Trump's contention that he was "responsible" for the Iran nuclear deal, Corker was a prominent opponent of it, and pushed through legislation requiring congressional input before sanctions could be lifted further. "Didn't have the guts to run!" the president proceeded. Bob Corker have traded barbed tweets in an unusually harsh exchange between a president and a senator from his own party. "Someone obviously missed their shift this morning", Corkertweeted, implying the president is immature and in need of adult supervision.
Trump made no mention of that remark in his tweets on Sunday, instead attacking Corker for his recent decision not to seek re-election and saying that as chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee the Tennessee senator bore heavy responsibility for what Trump considers the deeply flawed nuclear deal with Iran. Corker said Tillerson, Defense Secretary James Mattis, and White House chief of staff John Kelly are "those people that help separate our country from chaos".
Mr Corker hit back that the White House had become an "adult day care centre". He said when he originally ran in 2006 that he couldn't see himself serving more than two terms.
Sykes, who has never been a Trump supporter, said the real estate mogul's actions for the past two years should have been an early warning sign that the commander-in-chief does not act rationally. In so doing, Corker said publicly what many Republicans in Congress have largely limited to their private conversations.
White House spokesman Sarah Huckabee Sanders had previously said Corker's "chaos" comment was off the mark.
The barely concealed implication is that President Trump would not be able to govern at all without having those Cabinet members, the "grown-ups", in the room to clean up his messes.
Republicans hold a narrow, 52-seat majority in the Senate.
