President Donald Trump and Bob Corker Set for Presumably Very Awkward Lunch Date

Senator Bob Corker believes that President Donald Trump is harmful to the nation, that he lies and that he is "absolutely not" a role model for the country. He is also scheduled to see Trump Tuesday at a GOP policy luncheon.

Corker's assessment of the president came about an hour after Trump unleashed a Twitter attack on him, remarking that his fellow Republican "couldn't get elected dog catcher in Tennessee."

Croker responded to the Trump tirade on Twitter: "Same untruths from an utterly untruthful president." He included the hashtag #AlertTheDaycareStaff, which references his earlier assessment that the White House is merely "an adult day care center" designed to respond to Trump's Twitter outbursts.

Corker is not seeking re-election. Trump accused him of dropping out of the race after the president "refused to endorse him" and said that was the beginning of Corker's "negative" attacks on "anything" Trump-related.

Bob Corker, who helped President O give us the bad Iran Deal & couldn't get elected dog catcher in Tennessee, is now fighting Tax Cuts....

...Corker dropped out of the race in Tennesse when I refused to endorse him, and now is only negative on anything Trump. Look at his record!

"Everything he said today is completely untrue," Corker told CNN on Capitol Hill after the Twitter fight. "Unfortunately, I think world leaders are very aware that what he said is untrue. Certainly, people here are."

Corker said the president has "trouble with the truth," adding that he would never again support Trump for president.

Trump and Corker are scheduled to participate in a policy luncheon Tuesday. It will be Trump's first visit to Capitol Hill for the Republican senators' weekly event.

The Tuesday morning Twitter exchange is the latest in a feud between the two Republicans. Corker said on October 4 that three key Cabinet officials keep the administration from descending into the "chaos" that Trump could cause.

On October 8, Trump posted on Twitter: "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!"

Via Twitter, Corker responded to a Trump attack: "It's a shame the White House has become an adult day care center. Someone obviously missed their shift this morning." The words marked a rare counterpunch from a sitting Republican—though he is one not seeking re-election. GOP lawmakers mostly keep their heads down when Trump engages on Twitter.

In August, Corker criticized Trump's response to the violent white supremacists' rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, which led to Trump warning that Tennessee voters were "not happy" with Corker.
