GOP Sen. Chuck Grassley Tells Trump To ‘Cool It’ Over Feud With Bob Corker

As Donald Trump and Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker continue to trade shots with each other, another Republican senator is jumping into the fray and telling the two men to “cool it.”

According to the Associated Press, though, Grassley believes the president should be responsible for toning things down.

More from the report:

Most GOP senators were silent Monday, a day after Corker charged that the White House was an “adult day care” and Trump could set the nation “on the path to World War III.”

The only senator who publicly hinted at similar concerns was Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley, who said both Trump and Corker should “cool it.”

 

“And I think it would help if the president would be the first to cool it,” he added.

 

 

Grassley, who won’t be up for re-election until 2022, responded bluntly when asked about the situation.

 

“I don’t see how it’s productive, and I think that two words would kind of answer your question from my point of view: Cool it,” he said. “I think it would be better if we stuck to the issues and leave personalities out of it.”

Despite the Iowa Republican’s hopes that Trump will tone down his rhetoric, there has never been a situation when this president has shown an ability to do that. Instead, he will likely continue to escalate the feud with the GOP senator.

And all of this because Sen. Corker has done something that just about no other Republican is willing to do, at least not in public: Call Trump out for being the unfit, reckless commander-in-chief that he is.

The longer the feud goes on and the more this president lashes out on Twitter, the more he vindicates Bob Corker.
