President Donald Trump went on another rant Sunday against Republican Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker, who is leaving the body after two terms. Corker had pledged to only serve two terms in the office, despite Trump begging him to run again.
Corker lit the 'presidential bridge' on fire on his way out of Washington, DC this week, which lead the president into another Twitter meltdown.
“Look, I’m saddened," Corker said about the announcement by Gen. James Mattis he'd be resigning as Defense Secretary. "We’ve been working with allies for some 60 coalition groups that are working with us. The SDF, which is made up of Kurds and Arabs, have been doing the fighting for us. We’ve been helping them do what they’re doing, but they’re the ones doing the fighting.”
“I’m saddened for the broken relationships with countries that have been with us,” he continued. “I’m saddened for the many Kurds and others that likely will be killed and slaughtered by either the Syrians or the Turks. I’m saddened for our country in being so unreliable.”
Corker also told CNN's Jake Tapper that Trump's war against Congress for his border wall was nothing more than "juvenile."
Hours later, Trump apparently saw the footage and struck out on Twitter.
"Senator Bob Corker just stated that, “I’m so priveledged [sic] to serve in the Senate for twelve years, and that’s what I told the people of our state that’s what I’d do, serve for two terms.' But that is Not True - wanted to run but poll numbers TANKED when I wouldn’t endorse him," Trump tweeted. "Bob Corker was responsible for giving us the horrible Iran Nuclear Deal, which I ended, yet he badmouths me for wanting to bring our young people safely back home. Bob wanted to run and asked for my endorsement. I said NO and the game was over. #MAGA I LOVE TENNESSEE!"

Corker fired back, calling for the presidential "daycare staff" to be alerted.
