“US Republican senator Bob Corker stepped up his public feud with Donald Trump on Friday, saying the presidents undermining of his secretary of state was like castrating him in public.
Corker told the Washington Post in an interview that Trump had undercut Rex Tillerson`s efforts to enlist China in reining in North Korea`s nuclear program by denigrating the diplomat.
Tillerson told a news conference in Beijing two weeks ago that the US was directly communicating with North Korea on its nuclear and missile programs, but it had shown no interest in dialogue.
Trump took to Twitter the next day, saying Tillerson was `wasting his time` trying to negotiate with the North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un.”
Donald Trump ridicules anyone who opposes his words or policies mercilessly on Twitter, but Senator Bob Corker seems to be impervious to the president`s sophomoric tweets.
Trump has turned one of his earliest and most fervent supporters into an implacable foe, and as chairman of the powerful Senate foreign relations committee Corker is in a position to block Trump`s agenda.
Corker is spot on, Trump has effectively castrated his Secretary of State in public rendering him impotent as America`s top diplomat.
Tillerson was spot on when he called Trump a “fuc*ing moron,” only a clueless president would tell his Secretary of State that he is wasting his time negotiating. Diplomats negotiate, that`s what they freaking do!
I wish there were more Republicans in Congress who would publicly condemn Trump for his despicable behavior and actions.
I wish that the Trump administration officials, like Tillerson, who privately bash their Dear Leader, would man up and quit, and publicly disavow him.
