Corker Won’t Say If Trump Should Be Primaried: I Want To ‘Get Away’ And Think About It

JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

Outgoing Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) — a frequent critic of the President — wouldn’t say whether President Trump should be primaried during an interview with MSNBC on Sunday.

“I want to get away from here and think about it, I mean this is an every day in the hallway question, right? I want to get away from here and think about that,” he said. “What is happening right now is not the standard Republicanism that we’ve had in our country for many, many years and it’s very different. So, is it important for someone to get there and at least remind people in their Republican primary what Republicans generally speaking have been about for generations?”

“I think it’s important to remind people that we’re going through an anomaly right now as it relates to much of the standard Republican focus that’s been around for a long time,” he continued.
