President Trump Tweet-lashing Tennessee Senator Bob Corker

US President Donald Trump has aimed his Twitter account at sometime ally Senator Bob Corker with a series of derisive posts blaming the Republican for the Iran nuclear deal and saying Corker wanted the secretary of state job.

Corker, a ten year veteran of the US Senate, representing the people of Tennessee, responded quickly and decisively to Trump's tweet in a way that has surprised pretty much everyone, regardless of their political affiliation.

Corker has also publicly criticized Trump for his frequent tweets on North Korea, especially those that depict Tillerson's diplomatic overtures to the country as a waste of time.

"The president also accused Corker, a former Chattanooga mayor, of being "largely responsible for the horrendous Iran Deal" struck by the previous Obama administration on Iranian nuclear weapon development".

On the deal between Iran and six major nations including the U.S. that restricts Tehran's pursuit of nuclear weapons, he is an important and supportive voice. The president also contended that Corker "didn't have the guts to run" for a third term. Bob Corker have traded barbed tweets in an unusually harsh exchange between a president and a senator from his own party. "Somebody obviously missed their shift this morning". I said "NO" and he dropped out (said he could not win without my endorsement).

Trump's Sunday morning Twitter salvo followed weeks of increasing criticism of the president by Corker, who announced last week that he would not run for re-election in 2018.

Lamptey was banned for life, and the replay could help Senegal qualify for the World Cup. The result leaves Ghana at third in the group behind Egypt and Uganda.

Corker says he'll oppose any legislation that increases the national debt by a single cent.

Those comments were not the first time Corker has expressed distinct reservations about Trump.

"Representative Bob Corker "asked" me to support him for re-race in Tennessee".

Sunday's clash online was just the latest public spat in a relationship that has deteriorated significantly since Trump flirted with tapping Corker to be his 2016 running mate and nominating Corker to a cabinet position.

Trump then made a decision to prove his commitment to keeping the world from chaos by launching into a tirade against Corker on his own Twitter account. The president has previously tangled with other Republican senators, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky and John McCain and Jeff Flake of Arizona.
