Corker: Trump has not yet proven to be an effective leader

WASHINGTON- Senator Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) said President Donald Trump has not yet proven to be an effective leader.

“The president has not yet been able to demonstrate the stability, nor some of the competence that he needs to demonstrate in order to be successful,” Corker told Chattanooga reporters on Thursday.

Corker, who chairs the Foreign Relations Committee and last year was reportedly considered for the number-two spot on the Republican presidential ticket, also said that Trump “recently has not demonstrated that he understands the character of this nation.”

Trump this week has been heavily criticized for suggesting that anti-racist counter-protestors and the white nationalists they confronted last weekend in Charlottesville, Va. were equally to blame for the violence that rocked the town.

Both Republicans and Democrats expressed disappointment over Trump’s suggestion of moral parity as did several foreign heads of state.

Business leaders also expressed disappointment and several CEOs resigned from the president’s corporate advisory councils.

Trump in response to the resignations announced Wednesday that he would dissolve the councils.
