WASHINGTON (AP) — Republican Sen. Bob Corker says President Donald Trump is debasing the United States by “the attempted bullying that he does, which everybody sees through.”
Corker, the Foreign Relations Committee chairman who is locked in a war of words with Trump, said Tuesday the president also is degrading the country by “standing up in front of the American people and stating untruths that everybody knows to be untrue.”
Tennessee’s Corker says it’s unfortunate that young people in the United States and around the world have to witness Trump’s behavior.
He says, “You would think he would aspire to be the president of the United States and act like a president of the United States. But that’s just not going to be the case apparently.”
