Senior Republican feuds with Trump, saying he's 'debasing our nation'

President Donald Trump is heading to Capitol Hill for a lunch with Senate Republicans.

During a CNN interview at the Capitol, Corker said the President has "great difficulty with the truth" and is "purposely breaking down relationships we have around the world that had been useful to our nation". "I think the debasement of our nation is what he'll be remembered most for". The legislation would have blocked the deal if that effort got enough votes.

Even the points of contention on tax reform were largely papered over during the meeting, senators said, in favor of a more surface-level discussion of areas of common interest.

"We must stop pretending that the degradation of our politics and the conduct of some in our executive branch are normal", Flake said, discarding any appearance of party unity in favor of what he cast as a principled stance against Republican complacency in the face of Trump's presidency. "And I think that to the degree the president delivers that message it will be very well received by Republican senators".

Groenendyk said the President arguing with Senators in his own party could backfire in the months ahead, as the narrow GOP Senate majority attempts to pass tax reform and other large agenda items.

"Put this Twitter dispute aside. If he would stay out of their way and let them perform, people like (Secretary of State Rex) Tillerson and (Defense Secretary Jim) Mattis and others, we could really make progress on things that really matter greatly to our country".

"He should be embarrassed", Collins added, referring to Corker.

Corker warned Trump in a round of other television interviews against interfering in congressional efforts to finalize legislation to cut taxes and called his visit with Senate Republicans "a photo op". The senator previously referred to the White House derisively as an "adult daycare center". Trump also said Corker changed his plans to run for reelection in 2018 after he declined to endorse him.

In a furious exchange of tweets and counter-tweets, US President Donald Trump says a Republican senator "couldn't get elected dog catcher" while the senator has fired back that Trump is "utterly untruthful".

"I don't make comments I haven't thought about", Corker said Tuesday on "Good Morning America".

When asked if the President is a national security threat, Corker told NBC that he needs to be contained by members of his Cabinet, namely, Secretary of Defense James Mattis, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, and White House chief of staff John Kelly.

Corker earlier Tuesday morning stood by his October 8 remarks criticizing the White House as an "adult day care center" and arguing that Trump is putting the United States on a path toward "World War III".

Trump later took to Twitter to accuse Corker of trying to upend his legislative agenda.

The Tennessee Republican - who is retiring and has said "the most important public service I have to offer our country could well occur over the next 15 months" - said the Trump was "obviously not going to rise to the occasion as president".
