Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) joined Dana Loesch today to recap the Trump - Corker feud that reignited prior to today's Capitol Hill meeting, which was intended to unify Senate Republicans.
President Donald Trump and Senate Republicans met today on Capitol Hill to duke it out over tax reform. But the battle began hours before the high-stakes meeting when Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) threw the first figurative punch in an interview on NBC’s “Today" on which he criticized the president for his handling of developments in Niger and North Korea.
And then ...
Trump quickly launched a counterattack on Twitter saying, “Isn't it sad that lightweight Senator Bob Corker, who couldn't get re-elected in the Great State of Tennessee, will now fight Tax Cuts plus!”

And double then ...
The two continued their Twitter-skirmish until Corker added fuel to the fire in a second interview with CNN in which he said, "Unfortunately I think world leaders are very aware that much of what he says are untrue ... I don't know why he lowers himself to such a low standard. It debases our country." When asked if he regretted supporting Trump during the 2016 campaign, Corker answered, "Let's just say this: I would not do it again."
And the situation just kept deteriorating from there. Watch the video clip above to learn more.
