Trump claims he denied Sen. Corker's request for endorsement

Trump told Corker he was going to endorse him the day the Tennessee Republican announced his intention to retire, two sources familiar with the discussions said.

"He concerns me", Corker said, according to The Times. "I said "NO" and he dropped out", Trump tweeted.

Outgoing politicians sometimes feel greater latitude to speak their mind, a characteristic Mr. Corker said would "maybe" apply to him during his final 15 months in office. "Didn't have the guts to run!", Trump added.

"It's a shame the White House has become an adult day care centre", Mr Corker tweeted.

Bob Corker (R) blasted President Donald Trump in a scathing interview with The New York Times on Sunday, saying the "vast majority" of congressional Republicans were concerned with the president's volatile behavior and that rhetoric from the White House could set America "on the path to World War III". "Someone obviously missed their shift this morning", hinting that presidential caretakers were not doing their job.

Donald Trump and a prominent Republican senator have engaged in a heated series of testy tweets, revealing a rift with the president over foreign policy.

It also comes as Trump prepares to press Congress to advance his proposed tax overhaul.

Users of the new iPhone 8 Plus complain that the battery bulges
IHS Markit, a London-based research firm has confirmed the list of top 10 bestselling smartphones for the first half of 2017. Apple might want to find the actual cause of the issue and fix it at the earliest as the iPhone X launch isn't far away now.

Yet in August Corker broke with the president after Trump blamed "both sides" for violence during a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, that left a counter-protester dead and 19 others injured. In response to the senator's "stability" and "competence" comments, Trump tweeted, "Tennessee not happy!"

Corker also dismissed the idea that Trump may be using provocative statements about North Korea to influence negotiations with Pyongyang conducted by State Secretary Rex Tillerson.

Last week, the senator, responding to an NBC news report from October 4, made some harsh remarks on the Trump administration.

Mr Trump has long criticised the 2015 worldwide nuclear pact, a signature foreign policy achievement of former president Barack Obama in which Iran agreed to reduce its nuclear program in exchange for easing of sanctions.

Corker's tweet was particularly harsh in that it compared the President to someone in a nursing home, suggesting that he is not totally with it from a mental standpoint.

Despite all that, as recently as September Corker was telling reporters he remained committed to Trump's agenda, saying, "for people to try to act as if there is daylight between us as a result [of the spat] is just not true".
