Asked if Corker should resign, Sanders said that decision is not for the White House to make.

Bob Corker of Tennessee asserted during an interview that the majority of his Republican colleagues privately believe that President Donald Trump is prone to making dishonest statements.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders used her news briefing to tear into Corker, saying he had "rolled out the red carpet" for the Iran nuclear deal. Trump reacted by tweeting that Corker had decided not to run for reelection in 2018 because the president refused to endorse Corker.

In that interview, which followed a scathing back-and-forth between Trump and Corker earlier in the day, Corker suggested that Trump's actions could prompt World War III and said he does not "know why the president tweets out things that are not true".

Trump wrote on Twitter on Tuesday.

An aide revealed tonight that the duchess is still suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum but said her condition is improving. Hyperemesis gravidarum can cause severe nausea and vomiting and requires supplementary hydration and nutrients.

Corker punctuated this by telling the Times that "except for a few people, the vast majority of our caucus" - meaning, of the Senate's 52 Republicans - "understands what we're dealing with here".

The feud between Corker and Trump had escalated this weekend when the President tweeted that the outgoing senator "begged" for his endorsement before declining to run for re-election. "I stand by my statement". "I think we are well on our way".

In his speech at the United Nations General Assembly last month, Trump threatened that the United States "will have no choice but to totally destroy" DPRK if forced to defend itself or its allies. Corker also helped tutor Trump on foreign affairs, and he in turn considered the senator as a possible running mate and secretary of state.

So who IS Bob Corker? "I don't think so at all", he said.

Trump later gave Corker grief about the comment during a meeting in the Oval Office, according to a Republican congressional official who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the private conversations.
