Transcript: White House Bashes Senator Bob Corker Over Iran Deal
The feud between President Trump and Tennessee Senator Bob Corker appears to be far from over.
Two days after Trump tweeted that Corker was to blame for the Iran Deal… White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders had this to say at a press briefing… (*SOT/Sanders) “Senator Corker worked with Nancy Pelosi and the Obama administration to pave the way for that and rolled out the red carpet for the Iran deal.” Corker’s office reportedly told CNBC “the claim is not true.” He opposed the deal in 2015 and sponsored a bipartisan bill that required Congress to review it.
The Iran bill was eventually pushed through anyway.
Sanders blamed Corker for quote “putting things in motion.” This comes two days after a twitter war between Trump and Corker.
The senator called the White house an “adult day care center” and criticized the president in an interview with the New York Times.
Trump also bashed Corker in a series of tweets the same day.
