Corker (R) lets loose on Trump

Republican Sen. Bob Corker (Tenn.) said Thursday that President Donald Trump has not yet shown that he has what it takes to be a successful leader of the nation.

Talking to reporters in Chattanooga, Tennessee, during a stop at a local rotary club meeting, Corker blasted Trump across the board, from his lack of competence to his handling of the recent Charlottesville protests.

“The president has not yet been able to demonstrate the stability nor some of the competence that he needs to demonstrate in order to be successful,” said Corker, who serves as the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

“He also recently has not demonstrated that he understands the character of this nation. He has not demonstrated that he understands what has made this nation great and what it is today,” Corker said. “And he’s got to demonstrate the characteristics of a president who understands that. And without the things that I just mentioned happening, our nation is going to go through great peril.”
