Tennessee Senator Bob Corker has unleashed a blistering attack on US President Donald Trump, calling the president "utterly untruthful".
In a series of television interviews, Mr Corker accused the president of lying, adding that he debased the US and weakened its global standing.
Mr Trump fired back on Twitter, calling the top Senator a "lightweight" who "couldn't get re-elected".
The pair are due to meet at a Senate lunch to discuss tax reform on Tuesday. "He is purposely breaking down relationships we have around the world that had been useful to our nation," Mr Corker said on CNN after Mr Trump criticised him on Twitter.
"I think the debasement of our nation is what he'll be remembered most for," he said. The Foreign Relations Committee head, who was an early supporter of Mr Trump, added that the president has "great difficulty with truth".
