  • U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander speaks to reporters in Nashville on Thursday Aug. 24 2017

Bob Corker's comment that the president does not understand the nation's character and has not demonstrated competence "strange". He also called for "radical changes" at the White House.

Trump has repeatedly criticized Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the majority leader, for not seeking to eliminate the filibuster and for the Senate's failure to pass a health care bill, and made critical comments about Senators Lindsey Graham of SC, and Jeff Flake and John McCain of Arizona.

Even before Trump's tweet, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders was questioned over Corker's statement at Thursday's press briefing.

Bob Corker's criticism of Trump.

According to The Tennessean, Carr said Corker has been "too critical of the president and publicly outspoken".

Following Trump's wavering and widely denounced responses to the deadly white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Corker criticized the president's leadership. "And we need him to be successful", said Corker last week.

Corker, who represents Tennessee and chairs the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, joined a half dozen other Republican senators, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), who have borne the brunt of Trump's tweets. And last week, Trump slammed Sen. Jeff Flake and South Carolina Sen.

The Tennessee senator also lauded the president's first worldwide trip overseas, saying that he could not be more pleased. And some White House advisers say the president needs to campaign against Washington and politics as usual. "I don't know that there's probably anybody in the United States Senate that talks to him more about issues that matter, not only to our nation but to the world". "I think the president was rather restrained in his tweet [about Corker] and was absolutely correct".

Scott Cepicky, the chairman of the Maury County Republican Party, said the GOP-controlled Congress will have to start delivering in the aftermath of the failed efforts to repeal Obama's signature health care law, or it could blow back on Corker's re-election effort next year.
