Corker might not seek re-election in 2018

11 Septembre 2017

Corker has yet to receive the endorsement from Trump, who appeared angry at the senator's comments regarding his treatment of the Charlottesville riots.

"As far as what am I going to do in the future, I'm still contemplating the future", Corker told CNN in an interview published Monday morning.

"It's a tremendous privilege to do what I do and to weigh in on the big issues", the senator said. "But I have not decided what I'm going to do in the future". Plus it would give Democrats a new shot to pick up another Senate seat, although it still would be an uphill climb given that the state is still a solid GOP stronghold.

Despite his misgivings, many Republicans think Corker will run again. "Our nation needs to be successful".

Corker then also said Trump: "recently has not demonstrated that he understands the character of this nation". "That approach allows me to truly throw myself into the job and make decisions based on what I believe is best for Tennessee and our country without thinking about the next election or the next potential opportunity".

Corker seemed unfazed by Trump's tweet, telling CNN, "I thought his tweet was fine".

Corker said he's had "multiple interactions" with senior officials at the White House since the flap, and said "no question my relationship is just the same as it was before".

That tweet came a week after Corker offered some sharp criticism of the president at a town hall in Tennessee.

The president responded by tweeting, "Strange statement by Bob Corker considering that he is constantly asking me whether or not he should run again in '18".
