Corker Rips Fellow Republicans, Calling Them ‘Afraid’ to Check Trump’s Power

Tennessee Senator Bob Corker went off on the floor of the Senate Tuesday afternoon.

Corker was trying to get a vote on his amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act – which would limit President Trump’s authority on tariffs.

He then blasted his fellow Republican colleagues – specifically calling out Senator John Cornyn of Texas.
Corker accused Republicans of being afraid to “poke the bear” by which he means, go against the president.
