Many Senate Republicans Reject Bob Corker

Sen. Bob Corker claimed to speak for his Republican colleagues in an interview with the New York Times, but some in the Senate are not happy with his decision to pick a fight with President Donald Trump.

“Look, except for a few people, the vast majority of our caucus understands what we’re dealing with here,” Corker told the Times, claiming Trump was viewed as a threat to U.S. national security and global stability.

But a spokesperson for Sen. John Barrasso (R-WY) told Breitbart News that the senator did not agree with what the retiring Corker had to say.

“No, he does not agree with Sen. Corker,” the spokesperson revealed in a statement. “Senator Barrasso has worked closely with President Trump and will continue to be a strong ally in Congress.”

Barrasso is facing re-election in 2018 amidst rumblings of a possible Republican primary challenger.

Some Republicans staffers made it clear that Corker’s comments were self-serving and unhelpful — especially after announcing his decision to retire rather than seek re-election.

    Sen. Corker is no friend of conservatives and has shown this long before Trump became President. In addition to his big ego he has a mouth not well connected to his brain making for a very bad combination as a US Senator. Evidence of this goes back to the IRAN deal he made as chairman of a senate committee that gave cover to Obama doing what Obama did in by-passing the US Senate’s role as defined by our US Constitution in this deal / fake treaty Obama brought into existence with Corker’s and other US Senators not trying to stop Obama from doing what he did OUTSIDE the bounds of the US Constitution.
    I’m glad Sen. Corker will be gone in the near future. He is no friend of our Constitution.
