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".

Another day in Trumpland !
More of the same old he-said she-said hair pulling at playtime.

Have to agree with Corker though,
Trump will go down in history as The Great Debaser

Tell us something we don't know.

Trump is neither a statesman nor a good player. The alternative was worse.

The repugs need to blame themselves for their own poor ability to provide a viable candidate as they themselves are lacking.

Yeah because Obamas apology tour, ineffective leadership and support for Irans nuclear weapons, not to mention all the scandals (and subsequent lies) obama created didnt "debase" our standing in the world.

Maybe setting himself up for a 2020 run? Is there any precedent for party members to challenge a president looking for a second term?

So why exactly should I believe this clown?

He is a republican, according to many here they are the worst , that said he is another establishment politician whos primary purpose is to make money for themselves, and gather more power.

Republican, Democrat... really does not matter if they are talking they are probably lying.

Actually right or wrong Obama was respected world wide

Trump is not respected, and was not respected even before he ran for POTUS

Reagan ran against Ford in 76.
T. Kennedy ran against Carter.

Both times a sitting President seeking a second term had primary challengers from their own party..

Here's what Corker had to say to CNN earlier.

Trumps tweet tirade in full.

Bob Corker, who helped President O give us the bad Iran Deal & couldn't get elected dog catcher in Tennessee, is now fighting Tax Cuts....
...Corker dropped out of the race in Tennesse when I refused to endorse him, and now is only negative on anything Trump. Look at his record!
Isn't it sad that lightweight Senator Bob Corker, who couldn't get re-elected in the Great State of Tennessee, will now fight Tax Cuts plus!
Sen. Corker is the incompetent head of the Foreign Relations Committee, & look how poorly the U.S. has done. He doesn't have a clue as.....
..the entire World WAS laughing and taking advantage of us. People like liddle' Bob Corker have set the U.S. way back. Now we move forward!

And the saddest thing about that is that I don't think Trump even knows he is lying half the time. His brain is so disconnected inside that he can't put two and two together and realize that just because he ''heard'' something does not mean it is true. He fudges facts in his brain into mush and then draws whatever conclusion from the sludge he thinks he needs to cover his bases.

From a subjective point of view:

Amongst others, Corker was one of the earliest people to endorse Trump
bestowing a shade of credibility on him in the run up to the election

Everyone has known about about Trump's flaws for years
In so endorsing Trump, Corker provided him with a veneer of 'respectability'
enough respectability to encourage voters to vote for Trump

Does Corker, then, have a serious lack of judgement (re: Trump)
Was Corker himself, lying to voters to get this profoundly flawed buffon into power ?
or both ?

Either way, whilst Corker is right in saying that Trump is unfit for office

It's way too late

Why is it all the Republican Congressmen who aren't seeking reelection are the ones who suddenly grow a spine to stand up to Trump?

The GOP smells blood in the water and Trump is politically hemorrhaging like hell with all his lies And silly tweets!

He can't keep a viable staff, the WH is continuing to leak worse than ever and his key advisers are about to bail.

You're right. Israel loved Obama.

And that makes Trump just a-okay.

It's like you guys don't even bother to try anymore. What you're saying is "it doesn't matter if Trump does it, this guy did it first!"

What a precedent to be set. I wholeheartedly expect Trump to be used as a deflection tool for the next POTUS, recalling how awful Trump is and how the next person can't be any worse because "Trump did it first."

It's a joke that you guys seek truth from your politicians. It's obvious: you seek public relations. You want America's anchorman.

Guys like Corker and McCain don't understand that they're as much a part of the swamp as Hillary or Maxine Waters. This is one of those "sea change" moments in American history. The voting public wants the Establishment (of both parties) to get out, and let new leaders take over. Of course the old guard is resisting this.

Are you high? You do know that McCain and Corker are both leaving Congress right? McCain has a brain tumor. His leaving has nothing to do with the will of the public. So like do you always make up narratives in your head for unrelated things or does that only happen when you need to make Trump look good?

The blood they smell in the water is their own. Corker, McCain, these guys are all old lame ducks who are a couple of months away from being put out to pasture.
