According to the New York Times — and many other media outlets — Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) revealed that most Republicans in Congress feel they can't trust or depend on President Trump. His claims were seen as something of a revelation as Republicans have acted somewhat reluctantly to enforcing much of the President's agenda during his first year. Their consistent failure to pass a bill to repeal Obamacare throughout the year, in hindsight, seems like time well wasted. Obamacare is more formally referred to as the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

Before Corker's revelation, Republicans were already 'frustrated' with Trump

The consistent effort by President trump to waste Congress' time was clear after the Senate was unable to get the votes they needed to pass the repeal bill the first few times. President Trump made it quite clear, then, that he would not accept defeat and went on to attack McConnell and other Republicans when they wanted to move onto other legislation. It would appear that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell had taken a beating. During this period of time, all of the reasons to neither trust nor have any reason to depend on Trump was obvious.

For the first hundred days of Trump's administration, he showed no signs that he wanted to learn how to legislate with Congress and was only interested in forcing them to do his bidding because of who he is.

Well into October, if Sen. Corker's revelation is true, then it shows that relationship between Trump and congressional Republicans has worsened.

Corker made this known during an interview with the New York Times on Sunday, when he admitted to what the rival party and most of America had already determined, which was that the President was reckless.

Even with Corker claiming that Republicans think much the same as the rest of America, he also admitted that President Trump was treating his office like a "reality show."

Corker's value to the Trump agenda

Senator Corker is said to be important figure against Trump's effort to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal as he chairs the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

In fact, he said on Friday after the President announced that he would decertify the deal, the Senator stepped in to propose a plan to fix the nuclear deal. The senator is also essential to one of the biggest challenges that the President wants to take on, which is tax reform.

The attacks between Corker and Trump began on Sunday morning after the Tennessee senator announced that he would not run for re-election. Trump tweeted out that Corker "didn't have the guts" to run again. It was at this that Corker gave his now infamous response, that the White House was being run like an adult day care center and that someone had missed their shift that morning.

Certainly, he was implying that Trump's handler was nowhere to be found, let him loose on Twitter.

The argument continued with Trump claiming that Corker begged the President for his endorsement to run again, but that he decided to retire because he wouldn't be able to win without the President's endorsement. The President also claimed that Corker had asked him during the transition to be his secretary of state. With frequent reports that show Trump taking credit for other's successes, he claimed that he said "NO" to the Tennessee Republican. The senator denies this was the case.
