What Bob Corker really fears

Kushner is under scrutiny for his use of a personal email while being an adviser to the President

Asked if his spat with Corker would affect the tax effort, he said, "I don't think so, no". "He would have to concern anyone who cares about our nation". He added, "I know for a fact that every single day at the White House, it's a situation of [senior administration officials] trying to contain him".

Asked to clarify Trump's comments about making the plan stronger, a White House spokeswoman said the administration had always planned to work with Congress to make the proposal one that people could get behind. "Someone obviously missed their shift this morning".

The president has been feuding for days with the Tennessee Republican senator, who chairs the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and is the Senate's most outspoken "deficit hawk".

In that interview, which followed a scathing back-and-forth between Trump and Corker earlier in the day, Corker suggested that Trump's actions could prompt World War III and said he does not "know why the president tweets out things that are not true".

Trump, who has little tolerance for public criticism and prides himself on counterpunching those who cross him, took to Twitter on Sunday to attack Corker.

- If Tennessee Senator Bob Corker thought retirement might be the easy way out of Washington, he may have to reconsider his rather surprising decision. "I said "NO" and he dropped out (said he could not win without my endorsement). Was made to sound a fool, and that's what I am dealing with!"

As with most on-the-record discussion with an elected official, I was recording our conversation to ensure accuracy. "Didn't have the guts to run!" "I understand we're on the record".

Republicans hope Corker will ultimately vote for tax reform in hopes of boosting economic growth.

Corker's position on taxes matters because Republicans control the Senate by only a narrow 52-to-48 margin.

"Look, except for a few people, the vast majority of our caucus understands what we're dealing with here", Corker told the Times.

Trump then slammed Democrats for the inability to come up with new immigration legislation, saying: "The problem with agreeing to a policy on immigration is that the Democrats don't want secure borders, they don't care about safety for U.S.A". Instead, Trump said the country was "on the wrong path before" on the North Korea threat.
