President Trump calls out Sen. Corker on Twitter

President Donald Trump expressed his frustrations with U.S. Senator Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) on social media Friday morning and said the state of Tennessee is “not happy.”

The tweet comes after Corker recently criticized the president and said Trump has "not been able to demonstrate the stability nor the competence" to be successful. 

The remarks came after the president's seemingly shaky stance on the violent clash between white supremacists and counter-protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia. 

Corker later reiterated that he hopes his words will help push change. 

"The things that I say, I say hopefully to influence him and to influence the people around him," he said.
