Washington, Oct 9: President Donald Trump’s reckless ways could lead the United States of America on path to World War III, a top Republican Senator has warned.
In a stinging attack on the US President, Senator Bob Corker, the Republican chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said Donald Trump was treating his office like a “reality show”.
“He acts like he’s doing ‘The Apprentice’ or something. He concerns me. He would have to concern anyone who cares about our nation,” Corker told The New York Times.
The Republican senator’s remarks came just hours after caustic exchange of messages between Corker and Trump on Twitter. Whil Donald Trump slammed Corker for what he called “horrendous Iran deal,” Corker shot back describing the White House as an “adult day care center”.
“Senator Bob Corker “begged” me to endorse him for re-election in Tennessee. I said “NO” and he dropped out (said he could not win without. my endorsement). He also wanted to be Secretary of State, I said “NO THANKS.” He is also largely responsible for the horrendous Iran Deal!Hence, I would fully expect Corker to be a negative voice and stand in the way of our great agenda. Didn’t have the guts to run!” Trump said in a series of tweets.
“It’s a shame the White House has become an adult day care center. Someone obviously missed their shift this morning,” Corker replied.
Reports say that Corker’s support would be critical for Donald Trump over issues like tax reform and Iran nuclear deal.
If Senate Democrats end up unified in opposition to the promised tax bill, Mr. Trump could lose the support of only two of the Senate’s 52 Republicans to pass it, the New York Times reported.
