Trump's chewing out of GOP senators, according to people briefed on the calls, reflected the president's frustration that fellow Republicans would make moves that could damage him, particularly on an investigation that he detests. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), describing him as "weak on crime & border", and blamed Sen. The victor of that primary is nearly certainly guaranteed to win the general election in November 2018. And last week, Trump slammed Sen. That campaign was tinged by its own racial undercurrent, especially when an ad produced by the Republican National Committee hit the airwaves attacking his African-American opponent, former U.S. Rep. Harold Ford Jr. of Memphis. His advisers still insist the ad hurt the Republican more than it helped him.
The president also has attacked Sen. Corker was also on the shortlist to be picked as Trump's presidential running mate as well as his secretary of state. I know that for a fact. "Can you believe that Mitch McConnell, who has screamed Repeal & Replace for 7 years, couldn't get it done", Trump asked on August 10.
A moment of disagreement came earlier this summer, when Corker led the charge in the Senate on a bill to restrict the president's power to remove sanctions against Russian Federation despite Trump's misgivings.
It's still unclear whether Corker will run for a third Senate term in 2018.
Several other Tennessee Republican elected officials are said to be considering a primary challenge to Corker, but none have yet publicly indicated they will take on the state's junior senator.
