Trump derides Corker for Iran deal; Corker strikes back

Trump derides Corker for Iran deal; Corker strikes backU.S. President Donald Trump blamed Senator Bob Corker for the Iran nuclear deal on Sunday in a series of derisive Twitter posts that drew a sharp comeback from the lawmaker, an influential fellow Republican and onetime ally. The senator, who announced his retirement last month, was a national security adviser to Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign and on Trump’s short list last year for both vice president and secretary of state. More recently, he has criticized Trump, taking issue with the president’s response to a white supremacist demonstration in Charlottesville, Virginia, in August.
