  • Trump criticizes GOP senator in Sunday morning Twitter volley

Trump's criticism of the senator of his own party comes after Bob Corker repeatedly criticized the United States president's policy, in particular, in regard to the response to the violence at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

That word comes a short time after Trump had claimed on Twitter that Corker had "begged" for a presidential endorsement, and when Trump said "NO", Corker "dropped out".

Mr. Trump also wrote that Mr. Corker wanted the position of secretary of State, but that Mr. Trump declined to offer it. And Trump's accusing Corker of being "largely responsible" for the landmark Iran nuclear deal.

Corker, of Tennessee, was quick to respond with a tweet of his own.

Mr Corker hit back that the White House had become an "adult day care centre".

Health of Rohingya Refugee Children at Risk, UNICEF
About 900,000 doses of cholera vaccine are due to arrive this weekend and a vaccination campaign should start on Tuesday. While India sees the existing population of around 40,000 Rohingyas as a security threat , Haque had a different take.

"Someone obviously missed their shift this morning", he added.

Before announcing his final term, Corker questioned Trump's competence in the wake of the racially charged violence in Charlottesville, Virginia. "I'm politically incorrect and proud of it", said Tennessee Representative Marsha Blackburn in her first campaign video.

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

Corker always had been one to speak his mind, and even before Sunday's verbal volleys, his new free agent status promised to make Trump and the party nervous.

By now you are all likely aware that President Trump likes to attack his political foes on Twitter. That comment didn't go over very well at the White House, where press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders later insisted that Donald Trump was "the one that's keeping the world from chaos".

In May, the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee said the White House was in a "downward spiral" following reports that Trump had revealed highly sensitive intelligence to Russian officials.

Last week, Corker told reporters that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Defense Secretary James Mattis were the "people that help separate our country from chaos", an implicit stab at Trump's Oval Office behavior.

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

Republicans now hold a meagre two seat majority in the Senate, a situation which has seen them fall short of being able to pass healthcare legislation since they can afford to lose so few votes.
