a clue as the entire world was laughing in taking advantage of us people like little bob corker have set the us way back now we move. our lives put in our washington correspondent carolina jim oid carolyn it's good to see you well the the feud between the senator and the u.s. president and certainly kept you busy today talk to me about the impact of corker's criticism today i mean will it make a difference in the trump white house in the long term. well probably the world impact has just started because it is now another republican senator you name to name him jeff flake who has announced that he's not going to run again for senate in the midterm elections and next year in november
5:05 am
and that means he has nothing to lose just as corker who is also retiring from senate so also flake from very clear very hard words against the president of the united states he said we should not normalize donald trump's behavior you can excuse one thing or two but not continuously we have to speak out and stand up i hope that more of us do we can't wait any longer we can't continue with this behavior and this clearly shows a kind of for belly in the republican party and as we know also senator john mccain will retire from senate because of health reasons and in the past he also has criticized the president donald trump mccain said that donald trump is poorly uninformed and impulsive and also asked yesterday on whether there was a relationship between him and the president mccain and sort of almost non so with flake and mccain and corker there were you three senators of the republican party who were found very clear worse against the president
