Danny Tarkanian: Senator Corker Was Over The Line

Sen. John Mc Cain and Sen. Jeff Flake in Washington DC. Nov. 4 2015

"I've already told Senator Corker my thoughts about his comments about the President and that's as far as I intend to go at this point", Green told Breitbart News on Friday. "He also recently has not demonstrated that he understands the character of this nation".

Corker, chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, may have felt more at liberty to speak up last week, in the aftermath of Trump's much-criticized response to a violent white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, in part because he has maintained a relationship with the president.

A senior Trump administration official said the sanctions announced Friday are an attempt to block the South American country from having access to US financial markets in the face of President Nicolás Maduro's "liquidation of the Venezuelan economy".

When asked about Corker's comments at a press briefing on Thursday, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders called the remarks "outrageous" and said they did not warrant a response. "Tennessee not happy!" Trump said.

"There is no senator - no Republican senator - who President Trump talks to more than Bob Corker".

President Donald Trump is criticizing a Tennessee Republican who questioned his "competence" and "stability".

After talking with Vice President Mike Pence Friday, Corker said he "applauds the Trump administration for standing with the Venezuelan people".

Corker's praise of the USA sanctions comes as amid a verbal battle between him and Trump.

The Corker-Trump tensions reflect a deterioration in a relationship that was once close. We should say that loud and clear. I know that for a fact. "But I see my job as saying what I think and his job is saying what he thinks". Corker, moreover, is up for reelection next year.

"Status quo politicians in Washington, like Corker and McConnell, would never have had the courage Trump displayed to take on the establishment or his mental fortitude to cope with the predictable resistance to change which ensued", Crim said in a statement Friday.
