' We're on the Right Path': Trump Responds to Senator Corker's WWIII Accusations

Earlier, Corker, the current chairman of the Senate's Committee on Foreign Relations, told The New York Times that Trump's impulsive policy risks setting the country "on the path to World War III".

"I think we're well on our way, ' Trump said of Republican efforts to craft the bill".

In his speech at the United Nations General Assembly last month, Trump threatened that the United States "will have no choice but to totally destroy" DPRK if forced to defend itself or its allies.

"The president called Senator Corker on Monday afternoon and asked him to reconsider his decision not to seek reelection and reaffirmed that he would have endorsed him, as he has said many times", Womack said in a statement. Bob Corker is apparently still on, based on the new nickname the president bestowed upon Corker Tuesday morning.




He could have been referring to any of a few dozen mercurial outbursts, but likely the trigger was a Saturday tweet in which Trump asserted that "only one thing will work" to rein in North Korea - a statement that could only be read as a direct threat to strike Pyongyang militarily. "I think we are well on our way".

A White House official denied the report.

Trump labeling Corker "liddle" is a throwback to the 2016 campaign, when he gave Sen. Trump believes USA corporations are the highest taxed in the world and that the people of the United States desperately want to be relieved of burdensome taxes. Press Secretary Sean Spicer, Chief White House strategist Steve Bannon, and National Security Advisor Mike Flynn have all left. Even after Trump won, Corker was on the list of possibilities for Secretary of State. Corker had been an ally and personal friend to the president before they developed a public feud on social media. "The party needs to sublimate its divisions, get mainstream Republicans to the polls, and persuade the Trump base to cast ballot for non-Trump Republicans", he writes.

Senate Republicans are imploring President Donald Trump and Sen.
