Corker Unloads on Republicans for Being Afraid of Trump

Sen. Bob Corker on the Senate floor Tuesday

Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) criticized the Republican Party on Wednesday morning for aiming to please President Donald Trump instead of holding onto party ideals.

Corker, who is retiring at the end of his term, has been working for the past week to get a vote on his amendment that would give Congress the power to reign in the president's ability to impost tariffs on national security grounds, such as those on Canadian steel and aluminum which were announced this month. "The president might get upset with us as United States senators".

"I can't believe it", Corker exclaimed.

"No no no, we might poke the bear" is the language I've been hearing in the hallways. We might upset the president of the United States before the midterms.

His agitation became clear as he continued his speech on the Senate floor, and he raised his voice to the point of yelling at the other lawmakers.

"I think that's ridiculous", Trump Jr. said on "Fox & Friends" of Corker's comment.

"A lot of people who want to put things that are non-germane and very often controversial", he said.

Corker's amendment would provide a congressional review process for certain executive branch trade actions taken for national security reasons, such as those taken by Trump with respect to steel and aluminum.

Corker said the Trump administration is "making stuff up as they go along with no coherency to it", specifically referring to Trump's moves on trade.

The senator added that "if people don't like it they can vote up or down".

Senator Corker last week was told that his amendment may have a so-called "blue slip" issue should it reach the House of Representatives, a technical issue that requires revenue-related legislation to originate in the House.

America First: "To those who say this President is only picking winners and losers, let me say this: the only victor President Trump is picking is America". On Tuesday, he asked that his amendment be called up so it could be voted up-or-down by the Senate. James Inhofe of Oklahoma, objected to the motion. "But no, the United States Senate right now, on June 12, is becoming a body where, well, we can do what we can do, but my gosh if the president gets upset with us, we might not be in the majority, and so let's not do anything that might upset the president".
